(Collector´s Choice/EMI-Capitol Music Special Markets) 20 tracks (53:05) 1964-1969. - Welcome to the Golden Age of Dino. While there´s no doubt that Dean Martin was a major entertainer before he ever warbled a note for Reprise, it´s equal-ly true that the recordings collected here are the ones that made the man a super-star. ´We knew he could do it,´ bragged an anonymous label executive in the midst of Dean´s renaissance. ´All we had to find was The Formula.´ The formula was a mellow musical approach that produced dozens of hit albums and singles in the decade between 1962 and 1972. During these years, Dean was the master of all he surveyed: the hottest recording artist around, a major motion picture star, host of a popular television show, and a top draw in Las Vegas. This anthology brings together his 20 biggest hits for Reprise, music that is fully guaranteed to knock your socks off, pally, and put a smile on your face in the process. The world first embraced Dean as the handsome half of the comedy team of Martin and Lewis. Between 1946 and their break up in 1956, they were the biggest thing in show business. Dean made good use of this popularity, signing with Capitol Records in 1948. The label was never quite sure how to maneuver his mellow baritone, and they placed him in a wide variety of musical settings over the next thirteen years. Italian melodies seemed to work best, and Dean found unforget-table success with his recordings of That´s Amore and Ilolare. He even topped the charts in 1955 with Memories Are Made Of This. Still, it seemed he was capable of much more. In 1962, Martin left Capitol and followed his good friend Frank Sinatra to Reprise. (from the liner notes by Joseph F. Laredo )

Coma-reimagined for the twenty-first century from the undisputed king of medical thrillers. Lynn Peirce, a fourth-year medical student at South Carolina´s Mason-Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out. But when her otherwise healthy boyfriend, Carl, enters the hospital for routine surgery, her neatly ordered life is thrown into total chaos. Carl fails to return to consciousness after the procedure, and an MRI confirms brain death. Devastated by Carl´s condition, Lynn searches for answers. Convinced there´s more to the story than what the authorities are willing to reveal, Lynn uses all her resources at Mason-Dixon-including her initially reluctant lab partner, Michael Pender-to hunt down evidence of medical error or malpractice. What she uncovers, however, is far more disturbing. Hospitals associated with Middleton Healthcare, including the Mason-Dixon Medical Center, have unnervingly high rates of unexplained anesthetic complications and patients contracting serious and terminal illness in the wake of routine hospital admissions. When Lynn and Michael begin to receive death threats, they know they´re into something bigger than either of them anticipated. They soon enter a desperate race against time for answers before shadowy forces behind Middleton Healthcare and their partner, Sidereal Pharmaceuticals, can put a stop to their efforts once and for all.
The author of the bestselling Twilight series delivers her brilliant first novel for adults that´s also suitable for teen readers: a gripping story of love and betrayal with the fate of humanity at stake, featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies.
