"…this beautiful two-disc set, which is really as much or more an intimate photo album as it is a collection of recordings, just underscores the obvious – Martin was cool then and he's cool now. Yeah, he could sing. His voice was a distinctive, warm and relaxed croon that was instantly recognizable, and he certainly could have had a career as a singer alone, but Martin was more than that: he was an icon, and he did comedy, acted in movies, hosted TV shows, and in general coasted through his public life as himself, that cool guy having fun and going with the flow – even if he was in a tuxedo – with a drink in one hand and, more often than not, a cigarette in the other.
