"..Kevin Spacey's BEYOND THE SEA..the Bobby Darin biopic (opening in November!) will introduce a generation to the Master Showman for all times! BOBBY DARIN could out-SING..out-DANCE..out-ACT..out-ENTERTAIN any and all who have come and gone since his life was cut tragically short at the age of 37 in 1973. This new Capitol CD release represents some of his best performances..and if you are already a Darin fan and think you already have a lot of these cuts...THINK AGAIN!!! On "The Legendary Bobby Darin", CAPITOL has done a tremendous job remastering these classics...it will be like you're hearing them for the first time..Darin's impeccable phrasing and cool sense of rhythm blend with a rich and vibrant orchestration! LOOKOUT FRANK, DEAN, TONY, HARRY and all the rest..OL' MACKIE IS BACK!"
Bobby Darin ROCKS!!

"Being in my late 20's, I'm too young to have experienced Darin 1st hand and until recently was not very familiar with his body of work. I do partially credit Kevin Spacey for the introduction but it wasn't until months after I saw the movie that I was really itching to get my hands on a Darin album.
"Beyond the Sea" is one of my all time favorites and I thought it was really silly that I didn't have a single version of it in my music collection. Unlike a previous poster, I would rather hear a live version of a song over a studio version any day. That is to say as long as the singer can actually sing. I have literally played the version of "Beyond the Sea" on this album everyday for weeks. It's a song you want blast in your convertible with the top down. Sadly I do not own a convertible but am considering purchasing one solely for this purpose. :)
While I don't like all the songs on the album (I'm not a fan of folk or country), I would have paid $15 just for the 5 live tracks on the album
