Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

When Bobby Darin released That's All in 1959, he was already famous in the teen market--first as a rock & roll singer-songwriter ("Splish Splash," "Queen of the Hop"), then later as a teen idol (for his gorgeous "Dream Lover"). When he decided to release an album of pop standards aimed at the adult market, however, his label and even teen kingpin Dick Clark told him he was nuts. But Darin, who had a short life expectancy and swore to be "a legend by 25," prevailed. Radio picked up on his Vegas big band take on Bertolt Brecht's "Mack the Knife" and it became one of the biggest hits of the century. Its follow-up, "Beyond the Sea," did nearly as well. Suddenly, Darin was no longer competing with Chubby Checker and Bobby Rydell, but with Frank Sinatra. In fact, Darin was the only performer Sammy Davis Jr. refused to follow onstage. You could call this lounge music at its best--but that's faint praise. Simply call it Darin at his best. --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Crack Skip Pop!!!!!!!!!!! 22 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not so much a review but an attempt to redress the balance for a very negative review on this page that is highly critical of the sound quality. I suspect that the dodgy download has been taken from the Hallmark release of the same name and not this genuine Atlantic release. Hallmark are notorious for their poor quality vinyl to CD transfers and I avoid all of their out of copyright (i.e. recordings over fifty years old), releases as they are unlikely to have been taken from the master tapes. So be warned, do not be fooled by their "original artist, original recordings" hype. Yes they are the originals but they don't bother telling you when they are transferred from vinyl.

Back, to this release. Darin fans will know what to expect - and don't worry, the sound quality is fine.

Hopefully someone in Amazon might read this "review" and remove the negative review from this page and place it where it truly belongs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darin's Best 24 Mar 2010
By Angel Delta TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Before his untimely death in 1973 Bobby Darin had released 29 albums but none were as important, or as good, as his sophomore release from 1959 just two months before his 22nd birthday. Bobby had established his rock 'n' roll credentials with three top ten hits, "Splish Splash", "Dream Lover" and "Queen Of The Hop". But with "That's All" he demonstrated that his was a talent that could secure him international stardom.

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

Much credit for the album's acclaim must go to conductor and arranger Richard Wess who demonstrated that he could match Billy May or Nelson Riddle and who went on to work with Connie Francis, Sammy Davis jr and Nat King Cole. His sparkling arrangements of the standards together with Darin's superbly understated deliveries made the album a critical and a commercial success. It secured for Darin a lasting reputation as one of the greats and made him the very first rock 'n' roller to cross over into Standard territory. It also won a Grammy award for album of the year and best new singer.

Make no mistake, this isn't just a great record it's a masterpiece in the history of popular music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crack Skip Pop 31 Dec 2010
By Tim N
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Yeah - Classic songs.

The worst transfer I've ever ever heard - there are sections in Mack the Knife where you can here the record skip. Not the bits in the sample though.

Don't buy it. Or not this version anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Remaster of a Great Album 30 Nov 2003
By John Greco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I own both the CD and Mono LP version of "That's All," and without a doubt, the original vinyl sounds ten times better. I was stuned at how bad the mastering of this CD is. For example, on "Through A Long and Sleepless Night," the vocals only go through one channel. It seems whoever mastered the tracks for CD either didn't play it back after it was finished, or just is not a Bobby Darin Fan. If you own a record player, get it in it's original format. It does the album more justice. If not, still buy the CD, because "That's All" is, in my opinion, Darin's best among is short but amazing career.
I'm in my 20s and I never got the chance to experience Darin's music when he was still alive. But when you listen to the orginial LP, it's an experience that makes you feel like you're back in the late 50s and early 60s. Nothing comes close to the quality of vinyl. Record companies should consider making it a mainstream format again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Music...Very Poor Reproduction 8 April 2002
By auggie m. kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Beyond a doubt, "That's All" was (and is) among the greatest albums in the nightclub genre. HOWEVER, this CD sounds as if it were remastered from some,... worn-out cassette tape. Musically, this album rates 5 stars, and the music is SO great that I still give it 3, even though the sound "quality" is so utterly ...[wrong].

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Darin at his best! 24 Oct 1999
By C. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I originally bought this LP in 1959 because I liked Bobby Darin and the hits he'd had so far. But this collection of songs was so different from what he'd done before and so enjoyable that it changed my "14 year old" taste in pop music. The songs are all top-notch - not a loser among them. Of course, the ever popular "Mack the Knife" is here but also beautiful treatments of "Beyond the Sea" and "Through a Long and Sleepless Night". And even though it's been recorded by others no one can sing the title song, "That's All", with as much style as Bobby. I was thrilled when this came out on CD - my LP is scratched and about worn out!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st Rate Stuff!!! 21 Sep 2000
By Chad Bagley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
'That's All' is one of the finest albums of all time (I was going to say lounge albums but that seemed too narrow).
Bobby Darin died just a few years after I was born so I didn't discover his music until about 20 years ago when I had started getting into Sinatra, Martin, Torme' and the rest of the 'whisky and velvet set'. I won't go as far as to say that Darin is the greatest of all the lounge singers but he's certainly up there with the very best of them. Nobody has done 'Mack the Knife' or 'Beyond the Sea' better than Darin- and his version of 'Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise'on this record is nothing short of brilliant.
Darin was a fairly progressive guy and it's reflected in his music. Unlike Sinatra, who loathed change in the music industry, Darin went with the flow and took chances that some of his fellow singers would have scoffed at (he also didn't have his bodyguards beat people up either- but that's another issue).
With all the 'best of' and 'greatest hits' out there on the market, few people venture out and buy the good old re-issues of the original recordings. But this is one fine album and I recommend it to anyone who loves music.
It's a pity that Bobby Darin died at such a young age. He still had a lot of great music left in him that I would have loved to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Landmark LP 21 May 2005
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"That's All" was Bobby Darin's 2nd LP. Originally released in 1959, it won the Grammy for "Record of the Year" and a Grammy for Darin as "Best New Singer." Darin includes a hearty thank you for arranger Richard Wess who shines on the "side two" opener of the LP, "I'll Remember April." Its big band horn chart and the subtle punctuation of piano & strings allow Darin to vocally soar. On the standards, "Was There a Call for Me" has a blues feel with Darin diving into the emotional content. Gary Kramer's liner notes joke, "To know the complete history of 'Some of These Days,' you would have had to know Sophie Tucker when she was a young girl, and nobody goes back that far." Tucker recorded the song in 1913 which was followed by versions by Louis Armstrong (1929), Benny Goodman (1936), and even Billie Holiday in the 40's. It's a great big band number that Darin nails. The title track that closes the set is a great uptempo number with Wess' sterling horn charts. The album is of course most strongly remembered for its opener, "Mack the Knife," written by Kurt Weill in 1928 for "Threepenny Opera." Darin's swinging joyful delivery juxtaposes the sad tale of a serial killer who preys on women. The song rested at #1 for 9 weeks in 1959, an amazing feat. "Beyond the Sea" was also a top ten record and seems to capture the era of the late 50's with a part big band part rock pop feel. "That's All" was an important album for Bobby Darin. It peaked on the Billboard charts at #7 and remained on the chart for 52 weeks. It remains an entrancing work over 4 decades later. Enjoy!
