CD Reviews

The dynamic duo
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 01/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The chemistry between this terrific twosome is incredible, making a high voltage recording that's like a vaudville act at times, with some songs that sound as if they're from that era, with titles like "My Cutey's Due at Two to Two". It's an upbeat big band blast, with Billy May & Orchestra doing a marvelous job. The timing of their ad libs is impeccable, and the entire CD exudes wall-to-wall fun.Johnny Mercer, who's wonderful voice sounds a little like a smoky version of Darin's, was lyricist for over 1000 great songs, and received 4 Academy Awards for best song (like "Moon River"), wrote tracks 3, 6, and 8, and co-wrote the title track with Darin.Darin sparkles with energy, and sounds like he's having the time of his all too short life here...he does imitations of W.C. Fields, Groucho Marx, Dean Martin and Elvis, and with so much creative vitality and humor, left us with what just might be his finest recording here.This CD is a treasure from these entertainment giants from the past, with infectious merriment to lift the spirit and set feet to dancing."
Super Catchy Music

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I might be in the younger range of this album's audience (30), but I've been a Johnny Mercer and Bobby Darin fan since I first heard "Mac The Knife" and Louis Armstrong cover Mercer's "I Wonder" when I was a 15.
Personally, this album is the epitome of what a duet should be. The melodies are spot on ear worms you won't stop humming, the delivery and tone playful but always committed. The energy they share is always complementary, never outshining the other.
This must be in your collection , no matter what."
Great Album From Two Great Performers
Jerald E. Mills | Santee, CA, USA | 02/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A seemingly odd match on the surface, Johnny Mercer and Bobby Darin team to make an incredibly entertaining album of forgotten tin-pan alley gems and more contemporary standards. The arrangements of conductor Billy May provide a fantastic backing to an album that Darin and Mercer obviously had a ball recording. There is constant banter between the two to go along with the great music which together make for flat-out entertainment over and over again. I've heard this album thousands of times since I was a kid and never grow tired of it (I've owned it on vinyl, cassette, and CD over the years!). If you like the talent and versatility of either Johnny or Bobby, give this one a try. IT'S FUN!"
