A masterful unveiling of Bobby's first Capitol recordings.
(4 out of 5 stars)
"A full CD. I liked this from the first listening and continue to play and sing along as I learn the words. Bobby shows his immense range and fluid delivery. Chestnuts and recent (then) releases are a joy to hear. You don't know what kind of arrangement to expect but he delivers. Sound quality is very good. Better for the most part than the import 3-CD from England (that set is still a must for Darin fans) except for two cuts the quality is great. It's interesting to hear the original "Gyp the Cat" and compare it to the one Capitol decided to release. GET THIS CD!"
AN INCREDIBLE VERSION OF "WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I"

"The following tracks on this album are outstanding: What Kind of Fool Am I, If I Ruled the World (a real show stopper), This Nearly Was Mine, The Sweetest Sounds, Whispering, Love Letters, Just Bummin' Around, and Red Roses For A Blue Lady (swinging as only Bobby could do it). These alone make the purchase of this CD a MUST for a real Bobby Darin Fan. When I listen to WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I, I feel such a sense of loss for the tremendous talent of this man who left us at such a young age. I want more, much more, and I can't have it. The only way the world can have Bobby Darin is through the great recordings that he left us, and these are among his best. This CD is worth having at ANY price."
