The All Star cast of the modern version of Ocean's Eleven is comprised of George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. In this movie they try to recreate the success of the original Rat Pack which included the legendary Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin. No o­ne can really compare to that original cast, certainly not where their music is concerned. This compilation "The best Of The Rat Pack" has the three singers taking listeners down memory lane with eighteen tracks. Sammy David Jr. does some solo's like "A Lot of Livin' to Do" and "Eee-O-Eleven." Mr. Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra croons o­n "Love Is A Tender Trap." He sings confidently o­n the jazzy "Mr. Success" and praises of the city in "Chicago." Dean Martin gets sentimental o­n "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You." His mellow voice takes center stage o­n "When You're Smiling." A few duets can also be found o­n this album with songs like "Me And My Shadow" featuring Sammy and Frank. Fans will be delighted to read selected personal conversations between the three friends printed in the CD cover booklet.
