Among only a handful of entertainers who bridged the gap between '50s rock fans and their Sinatra-loving parents, Bronx-born pop legend Bobby Darin's life and career were short but extraordinary. In 1959 the singer/composer rocketed to stardom with 2 Grammy Awards-Best New Artist and Record of the Year for the #1 smash "Mack the Knife." His other signature smash provides the title for this biopic chronicling his genre-defying music, tempestuous marriage to starlet Sandra Dee, and untimely death at age 37-in 1973-from a heart defect acquired during a childhood illness. Kate Bosworth stars as Dee, and Darin is brought to life by Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, who also directed the film and sings 18 of the artist's classic hits.

Wonderful soundtrack to the movie! Just like listening to Bobby Darin!
Simple Song of Freedom

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Well, I have never heard Bobby Darin sing before. But this has enough emotional power to satisfy me, and the rendition of Simple Song of Freedom is brilliant. Perhaps one of the greatest numbers written, my personal opinion. Good arrangements help to move this CD over the top."
