Neil T. Daniels former NBC Exec. & President of the Dean Martin Fan Center, had this to say about the book Beyond Our Wildest Dreams…

“There’s a brand-new book that traces those magical years and what life was like, performing with show business legends: Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Donald O’Connor, Louis Prima and similar legends. Not only does it focus it’s motif on Dean Martin, but it also captures the fun and spirit of the era with more than 300 rare and unseen photos in a wonderful pictorial layout. Historian Billy Ingram produced this 340 page book with a unique way of story-telling using quotes and dialogue as if a room full of contributors were all communicating on a party line.”

Book Review               

“This is a book about people… two people in particular, of course, named Maria and Linda Alberici, but also the many people who either worked with them or crossed their lives in the course of their show business journey. How fortunate they were to hone their craft as entertainers at a time when old Hollywood and old Vegas were still alive and vibrant, variety shows dominated television, and nightclub singing acts were just as spectacular, and yet a little more intimate. How fortunate we are that Maria and Linda have captured the fun and spirit of that era throughout the pages of this engaging book. Beyond Our Wildest Dreams provides a backstage pass at entertainment life in the 1970s, with great stories about Maria and Linda’s work with such legends as Louis Prima, Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Jerry Vale, Jonathan Winters, Sammy Davis Jr., Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Frank Sinatra and, of course, Dean Martin. Then again… to most of us, they’re legends. To the Alberici Sisters, they’re people. And that’s the way you’ll see them, too, by the time you finish their book.”
