Splish Splash wasn't the beginning for Bobby Darin, nor was it just a flirtation with rock 'n' roll. Forming a band in high school, Bobby Darin first played pop hits of the early '50s and standards, before becoming one of rock 'n' roll's pioneers, cutting records reminiscent of Elvis Presley, Fats Domino and Little Richard, and writing what became one of Buddy Holly's biggest hits Early In The Morning. This collection draws from sessions originally released on Decca, Atco, Brunswick and Capitol. If Mack The Knife is the beginning and end of Bobby Darin to you, you're in for a big surprise.
