• Bobby DARIN - Things - The Singles Collection 1956-1962

This 2-CD set anthologises BOBBY DARIN's singles releases between 1956-1962, and includes two rare-as-hens-teeth promo's, and a couple of equally rare UK-only B-sides.

Darin was by far the classiest, most versatile singer of his era, and carved out parallel careers as a R&R singer, a teen idol and an interpreter/updater of show tunes, and what is now referred to as The Great American Songbook.

30 of the titles on this 64-track compilation were major US and/or UK chart records.

Includes R&R hits like 'Splish Splash', 'Early In The Morning', 'Queen Of The Hop', 'Mighty, Mighty Man', 'Plain Jane' and 'Dream Lover', alongside finger-snapping hit revivals of 'Mack The Knife', 'La Mer', 'Clementine', 'Bill Bailey', 'Lazy River', 'Nature Boy', 'You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby', and 'Baby Face',

Plus classy mainstream Pop hits like 'I'll Be There', 'Artificial Flowers', 'Somebody To Love', 'Sorrow Tomorrow', 'Irresistible You', 'Multiplication', 'Things' and 'If A Man Answers', and finally, even R&B, viz his cover of Ray Charles' 'What'd I Say'.

The promo's and many of the rarer B-sides on this collection are exceptionally hard to find elsewhere on CD.
