5.0 out of 5 stars Darin: That's All & More! 1 April 2010
By Angel Delta TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Bobby Darin's first album for Atlantic was released in 1958 and features the novelty hit "Splish Splash" which was covered by the British comedian, Charlie Drake. The rest of the album is typical fifties fare: a mix of sub-Presley ballads, a rip off of Ready Teddy (Pretty Betty) with a dash of Paul Anka and Dean Martin. Darin co-wrote seven of the songs but there is nothing here to make the heart flutter. There are solid enough performances of some very ordinary songs but nothing to prepare the world for what was to come.

Before his untimely death in 1973, at the age of 37, Bobby Darin had released 29 albums but none were as important, or as good, as his sophomore release "That's All" released just two months before his 22nd birthday in 1959. He had established his rock 'n' roll credentials with "Splish Splash", "Dream Lover" and "Queen Of The Hop" but with "That's All" he showed that he possessed a talent that would secure for him international stardom.

The album kicks off with his signature song and number one hit "Mack The Knife" a stunning version that not even Sinatra could match. Then, "Beyond The Sea", a swinging arrangement of the Charles Trenet classic, "La Mer". He follows these with ten other classics from the Great American Songbook.

Much credit for the album's acclaim must go to conductor and arranger, Richard Wess, who showed that he could stand and deliver alongside Billy May, Nelson Riddle and Johnny Mercer. His sparkling arrangements together with Darin's superb interpretations made the album a critical and commercial success. It secured for Darin an enduring reputation and made him the the very first rock 'n' roller to cross over into standard territory. It also won a Grammy for album of the year and for best new singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only just got there 9 May 2011
By Richard
Looked at in retrospect the Darin career could easily have gone same way as so many failed would be rock'n'rollers on the Decca label.This is the label Darin began on in 1956 when he put out a cover version of Lonnie Donegan's Rock Island Line but in this case the U K star won.A few more singles and Decca dropped his contract.
Next came Atlantic/Atco and after the flops continued Darin was about to throw in the towel.So far Bobby Darin had been about musical failure.
Then 2 things happenned at once.A desperate attempt to get the brass ring and he signed to Coral as the Ding Dongs to cut a Ray Charles styled rocker called Early in the morning-which even used a Charles title!
A last chance at Atco and Darin records a song he wrote in 12 minutes called Splish Splash and found himself with a Top 10 hit.Atlantic found out what he'd been up to at Coral and purchased the master back on condition that Coral could use the song for a cover and the name Ding Dongs would become the Rinky Dinks.Coral had Buddy Holly cover not only this song but its B side as well and had the bigger hit.
Meanwhile Darin had a few hit follow ups like Queen of the Hop and finally the big one for his foray into high school pop with Dream Lover-a song which garnered over 100 covers to date.
His idea to cut an album of the Great American Songbook a la Frank Sinatra didn't meet with much enthusiam from Atlanic and only agreed to put it out if he paid for it.Which in the end is what he did and ended up with not only a hit album but a No 1 single when Mack The Knife was extracted.Eventually it led to Darin starring at Las Vegas
A 2nd set of the same fare with Clementine lifted for a single saw Frank Sinatra actually copying him to record another folk song -Old McDonald had a Farm.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's it! That's All!! 3 Jun 2010
I am not the right person to write a review of Bobby Darin's work.
I have loved this man since 1958 when I first saw him LIVE as part of what Chuck Berry called "a rhythm revue". His stage presence, his mannerisms, his natural ability/talent floored me. Outside of his immediate family, I am probably the biggest (not physically!) DARIN fan on the planet. Whoever put this package together deserves more than a word of thanks. It covers a wide range of selections which highlight Bobby's versatility. Along with ELVIS and Ray Charles,
Darin was that rare entertainer who could sing - as a man once said - ALL KINDS!!!
And here, Bobby sings all kinds, from his first album aimed, at the time, squarely at the youth market to his celebrated breakthrough album - THAT'S ALL - featuring MACK THE KNIFE.
THIS IS DARIN fulfills the promise of his earlier work while the THINGS and SINGS RAY CHARLES albums offer further proof of the man's abilities.
"The only entertainer I wouldn't want to follow on stage", Sammy Davis Jr. once said of BOBBY. This package shows you why!! Enjoy!
