The group works together seamlessly to create an album that crackles with energy while maintaining a stylish flow."

Our Price: $74.99

  • Having played a good dozen or more vintage Bobby Darin albums, we can tell you that finding sound as good as this is a lot harder than we thought it would be

  • Everything that's good about All Tube Vocal Recordings from the '50s and '60s is precisely what's good about the sound of this record
  • "The moods vary from a wild Caravan, introduced with a drum solo by Chico Hamilton joined by flute and bass and seemingly held together by Tony's voice alone, to Don Costa's almost cinematic big orchestra styling of Spring in Manhattan as well as the lightly melancholy moods of When Joanna Loved Me and Don't Wait Too Long. Throughout the album, Tony's effortlessly soaring voice gives meaning to every number."
