Bobby Darin was born in New York City in 1936 and first appeared in local coffee houses in the mid-1950s. A first single from that time, ’My First Love’, went down without causing much attention.

Connie Francis’ manager got him an appearance in the ’Tommy Dorsey Show’ and also got him a record deal with Decca Records. His debut single for the label, a cover version of ’Rock Island Line’, and other releases between 1956 and ’58 left no trace. It was only with his move to Atco Records and the 1958 ’Queen Of The Hop’, which sold millions of copies, that his career took off. In the following years he landed a total of four Top 10 hits, including the number one hits ’Dream Lover’ (USA) and ’Mack The Knife’ from the Threepenny Opera (UK) – awarded with a Grammy!

Bobby Darin died in California on December 20, 1973. In 1990 he was inducted into the ’Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ and nine years later into the ’Songwriters Hall of Fame’. Finally, in 2010 his life’s work was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

With the exact reproduction of an extremely rare Japanese 25cm LP – strictly limited to 500 colored copies – Bear Family releases twelve recordings from his most successful recording period!
