iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though a successful, teen-pleasing pop singer who'd ridden such emblematic '50s fare as "Splish Splash," "Dream Lover" and "Queen of the Hop" to considerable success, Bobby Darin dared dream of something bigger than mere stardom: artisanship. Thus this, his second album became one of the most stunning mid-career course corrections in pop music history, a 1959 collection of adult-oriented big-band swing and ballads that not only challenged Sinatra and Bennett on their own turf, but triumphed. "Mack the Knife," his swinging, Vegas-ized retooling of Bertolt Brecht, became not only a massive hit and modern pop signature, it powered the collection to the Grammy's highest honor, Album of the Year, knighting him as Best New Singer in the bargain. His elegant "Beyond the Sea" was also a chart success, while the buoyant title track and such savvy, eclectic catalog choices as "I'll Remember April" and "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise" showcase an ambitious singer whose talent was every bit the match of his audacity. Darin would go on to become a legend for his dynamic stage shows before undergoing yet another unlikely transformation to somber folkie at the end of his career, but he never produced another studio album as accomplished and thoroughly entertaining as this one.

That's All

I downloaded only "Mack the Knife" and was very disappointed to discover that it comes with a verbal introduction AND a postscript! I could do without Bobby's talking - I just wanted to hear him sing! I'm deleting this and will continue my hunt for JUST the song. Sigh!

The Turning Point for Darin

This is easily one of Darin's best albums. Even though this was his first LP, he had numerous songs in the late 1950's that followed the Rock roots of the time. With That's All, Darin ditched the teeny bopper music for the sophisticated Jazz/Lounge genre. Nearly every song here is fabulous, namely Mack the Knife, Beyond the Sea, Some of These Days (which is even better on the Live at the Copa album), and That's All (which is much more lively than Sinatra could have every done). This is Darin at his best, and set the stage for his Vegas runs in the early 1960's.

Biography

Born: May 14, 1936 in The Bronx, New York, NY

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s

There's been considerable discussion about whether Bobby Darin should be classified as a rock & roll singer, a Vegas hipster cat, an interpreter of popular standards, or even a folk-rocker. He was all of these and none of these. Throughout his career he made a point of not becoming committed to any one style at the exclusion of others; at the height of his nightclub fame he incorporated a folk set into his act. When it appeared he could have gone on indefinitely as a sort of junior version of...
