Rated 5 out of 5 by LOYAL2WMT THIS COLLECTION COVERS THE ESSENTIAL "BOBBY DARIN"
"BOBBY DARIN-THE HIT SINGLES COLLECTION" IS A PERFECT TRIBUTE TO A VERY SPECIAL RECORDING ARTIST. BY THE WAY, IN HIS ALL-TOO-BRIEF-LIFETIME, HIS MUSIC CAREER ALSO PROVED HIM AS A FANTASTIC AND CLASSY PERFORMER. THE LATE, GREAT "BOBBY DARIN" CONTRIBUTED HIS OWN TRULY UNIQUE STYLINGS TO EACH SONG THAT HE RECORDED. I'D BASICALLY DESCRIBE HIM AS A COMBINATION OF "SINATRA'S" MUSICAL MANNERISMS, BUT WITH A MORE SOULFUL AND ENERGETIC FLAIR. THERE ARE MANY TITLES AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET, EACH FEATURING HIS GREAT MATERIAL WITH ENHANCED AUDIO QUALITY, AS THIS CD TITLE. I, ALSO, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THOSE WHICH OFFER ADDITIONAL PERSPECTIVES INTO HIS BODY OF MUSIC. THIS TITLE, HOWEVER, CONTAINS A COLLECTION THAT COVERS ALL THE ESSENTIAL HIT RECORDINGS OF HIS ENTIRE CAREER. THIS COMPACT-DISC OFFERS A TOTAL OF TWENTY TRACKS, FEATURING THE BEST MATERIAL HIS RECORDING CAREER YIELDED, FROM HIS EARLIER HIT SINGLES AS "SPLISH SPLASH", "DREAM LOVER", "MACK THE KNIFE", "BEYOND THE SEA", AND "YOU MUST HAVE BEEN A BEAUTIFUL BABY" TO LATER HITS AS "YOU'RE THE REASON I'M LIVING" AND "IF I WERE A CARPENTER". OH YEAH, THIS IS "BOBBY DARIN"!!!

I really enjoy listening to this collection. It has all his
classics and then some. I appreciate more especially
since after seeing "Beyond the Sea" I know that when
he was 10 years old a docter told his mother that he
had rheumatic Fever and probably wouldn't live to see
his 18th birthday. His music proved that you could be
entertaining and funny and not have drugs/alcohol in it. I love hearing all the songs and highly recommend
this for any Bobby Darin Fan. I guarantee, you will not
regret it. I give it a 10 out of 10.
