Avis sur l’album

Though Frank D'Rone must have appreciated the critical comparisons to Frank Sinatra, his 1960 Mercury LP After the Ball sounds more like the work of Bobby Darin, the deep crooner with the angelic face then making waves with his nightclub act and live record, Darin at the Copa. D'Rone, a former guitarist, also bears the mark of Mel Tormé (a true musician's singer), shaping his notes to fit the mood and constantly making conscious decisions to twist a well-worn standard into a new thing. Though singers like him and Darin represented the new face of swinging pop, D'Rone explores deep into the past for these songs; the title track alone was over 60 years old (though taken at a tempo poor Chas K.

Though D'Rone never found commercial success like Darin, the record held up well.
