Though Bobby recorded this record back in 1960, Atco didn?t release it until 1963. The problem was that he had just emerged from teen idol-dom with his hit version of 'Mack the Knife', and if the label didn?t quite know if they had a teenybopper heartthrob or a tuxedo-clad hipster on their hands, they SURE didn?t know what to do with this, probably the most ambitious album of Bobby?s career. Side one presents Bobby with string (!) arrangements by Torrie Zito, while side two is Bobby at his all-time moodiest, with arrangements by jazz pianist Bobby Scott. This came and went pretty quietly, but, with almost none of these songs otherwise available, for Darin aficionados the release of this concept album on CD is BIG news. Includes 'It?s You or No One; I Hadn?t Anyone ?Til You; Not Mine; I Can?t Believe That You?re in Love with Me; I?ve Never Been in Love Before; All or Nothing at All; Only One Little Item; Don?t Get Around Much Anymore; I?ll Be Around; All I Do Is ! Cry', and 'I Guess I?m Good for Nothing'.

"Gordon Anderson,s Collectors Choice Music has done us a great favor. This recording of one of Darin,s great albums has high fidelity to the extent you hear as though you are sitting in with the musicians during recording. In a sea of crap that goes for pop music it,s a great pleasure to hear a scintillating talent like Darin. Bobby, we miss ya bro!"
Great as always
