|Dean Martin chronology|
Welcome to My World is a 1967 studio album by Dean Martin. The album was released after the unexpected success of the singles "In the Chapel in the Moonlight" and "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me". "In the Chapel in the Moonlight" had previously been released on Dean Martin Hits Again, and the title track, "Welcome to My World", had appeared previously on the 1965 album (Remember Me) I'm the One Who Loves You.
"In the Chapel in the Moonlight" topped the Adult Contemporary Chart, and peaked at 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me" peaked at 5 on the Adult Contemporary Chart and 38 on the Billboard Hot 100.
William Ruhlmann on Allmusic.com gave the album three stars out of five. Referring to Reprise's propensity to reissue material he commented that it "may have been another of Reprise's mix-and-match Martin LPs, but it was a successful one, restoring a measure of his commercial clout".
