"This 3 DVD B&W set is done well EXCEPT that it is NOT "The Rat Pack" singing! It is Frank, Dean & Sammy singing separately. Sammy sings on one DVD, Dean on another & Frank on the third. I thought it was the Las Vegas act that they did TOGETHER as The Rat Pack but it was not. If the DVD said "The Beatles Sing", would you expect 4 DVD's with John, Paul, George & Ringo singing their own selections separately? No! So, if you don't mind Frank, Dean & Sammy singing their music individually, this is a good 3 DVD set. But if you want The Rat Pack as we knew them in their Las Vegas act, this isn't it. Each of them sing about 12-15 songs on each DVD, but the song selections could have been better. Most of the songs in this set were NOT big hits."

"When I think of the Rat Pack, I think of the chemistry that happened between the members that made thier joint collaborations special (in live shows as well as their famous after-hours adventures). As a collective unit together they were greater than the sum of the individual parts.
This 3 CD set is a collection of three individual CDs outlining the individual careers of Frank, Dino and Sammy. As the CDs focus on the individual, rather than collaborative careers of these talented individuals it's an interesting collection, but does not represent 3 CDs of collaborative Rat Pack magic.
A fine package of vintage footage associated with these three very talented individuals, but - just as a collection of 4 solo albums (one from John, one from George, one from Paul and one from Ringo) would never represent a Beatle album - I'm not sure this package truly represents the real Rat Pack magic.
