Another Song on My Mind: The Motown Years
Two CD collection. Bobby Darin was so much more than just 'Mack the Knife'. In just 37 years, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and entrepreneur raced against the clock to conquer records, film, and television as he successfully transitioned from rock 'n' roll teen idol to tuxedoed swinger and then to denim-clad folk troubadour. At the dawn of the 1970s, and still battling the chronic heart problems that had plagued him since youth, the superstar artist signed with Berry Gordy's renowned Motown Records. At Motown, the versatile artist reinvented himself yet again, recording some of the most vibrant and vital music of his remarkable career. He tackled Hitsville, USA-style R&B and soul alongside original songs and personal re-interpretations of favorites by the day's top pop and rock songwriters including Randy Newman, Cat Stevens, Paul Williams, and Bob Dylan. Darin released just one studio album and a number of singles at Motown before his untimely death in December 1973; the following year, producer Bob Crewe assembled a posthumous LP to celebrate his friend's life and music. Yet, as the decades passed, Darin's artistically wide-ranging Motown recordings were all but forgotten. Now, Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records proudly present the first-ever retrospective of the final chapter of the legendary Bobby Darin's musical life. Another Song on My Mind: The Motown Years brings together the self-titled 1972 Bobby Darin album never released on CD anywhere in the world with Crewe s original, never-on-CD mix of the posthumous Darin 1936-1973. If that's not enough, this definitive, freshly-remastered anthology also adds every one of Bobby's Motown singles as well as the remixed tracks from the short-lived CD reissue of Darin 1936-1973! The Second Disc's Joe Marchese supplies the new liner notes for this landmark release, with remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision. Another Song on My Mind: The Motown Years is certain to prove one of 2016's most significant archival collections for fans of Motown, R&B, pop, soul, and classic vocals, and celebrates the singer's 80th birthday in style. Look out, old Bobby is back!
