One of Bobby?s best! This 1961 album took 12 tunes from the Great American Songbook to tell the story of a doomed romance, with side one being the blossoming and side two the break-up. If that sounds Sinatra-esque, you?re right; this is probably Bobby?s most overt attempt at the concept album format Frank pioneered, and it?s a triumph, with excellent arranging by Torrie Zito. A bunch of songs here haven?t even shown up on Darin compilations, either, so count this as a must! Includes 'Long Ago; I Didn?t Know What Time It Was; How About You; The More I See You; It Had to Be You; No Greater Love; In Love in Vain; Just Friends; Something to Remember You By; Skylark; Spring Is Here', and 'I Guess I?ll Have to Change My Plan'.
THE MOST UNDERATED PERFORMER/SINGER EVER!!!

"There is no one in the world that can compare Sinatra, Bennett, Damone, Sammy Davis Jr. etc., to the unbelievable talents of Bobby Darin. He put all of them to shame. Arguably the most underated entertainer ever. Have been fortunate enough to see him perform through all of his transitions. Finally, Bobby realized that his niche was his roots, beginning with "Mack The Knife" and after. One of the most impeccable musicians EVER. Excellent piano player (Classical, Jazz, etc.), vibraphones, drums, guitar, etc. His talents were boundless. Sorry, but , can't expound enough of his talents and the tragic loss of Bobby on December 23, 1973. Am still mourning his loss to the world!!!"
Great old standards

"It's amazing how many of our present young vocalists are trying to copy Bobby but it is impossible. He had a unique talent and I have tried to purchase all his recordings and marvel at how he could cross every spectrum. If you love Bobby's work definately get this one."
