Eee-O 11: The Best Of The Rat Pack CD (2001)
Timed to coincide with the release of the 2001 remake of the Sinatra, Martin and Davis anti-classic Ocean's 11, Eee-O 11 serves less as a best-of than an introduction to the high-living nightclub ethos the Rat Pack embodied. Along with some true knockouts, mostly from Frank's catalogue, the collection includes some impossible corn (a "When You're Smiling" that seems to be putting Dino himself to sleep) along with a couple of straitjacketed studio takes on the Pack's onstage antics (both Sammy duets). Handily, it culls one of the original movie's few high points--the rousing Davis blues that provides this disc's title--for a closer. Those drawn in by the newer film will find this a welcome package, as will swingin' initiates looking for a road-trip CD soundtrack.

Fantastic value.
