Editorial Reviews

Twist with Bobby Darin was released in mono and stereo in December of 1961 and peaked at number 48 on the Billboard charts, remaining there for 31 weeks. The dance album is a collection of rock songs, all of which have backbeat suitable for, obviously, twisting. An amazing seven of the twelve songs from Twist with Bobby Darin were included on The Best of Bobby Darin, Vol. 1 and the remaining five are on Rare Rockin' & Unreleased. That so many of the songs from this record are part of Darin's "best" does not mean that this is his best album. In fact, Twist with Bobby Darin was something of a stop-gap album. For Teenagers Only was released in September of 1960 and failed to chart. Five of the songs from that LP ("Keep a Walkin," "You Know How," "Somebody to Love," "I Ain't Sharin Sharon," "Pity Miss Kitty") were included on Twist for some reason, meaning that only seven of the songs were new. The new tunes, however, were among his strongest. The entire first side (and first six songs) are all Bobby Darin compositions. Darin had not released his own songs in a few years and maybe Atco was not sure they would sell records themselves. Side two included the hit "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" which was written by Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren. ~ JT Griffith, All Music Guide

I would advise bobby darin fans to stay away from this cd. The conversion from the original mono to psuedo stereo is very poor. It has removed all the excitement from what were a few great rock and roll tracks in mono. I have the original bullmoose on 78 and this is better than this cd version.

Though it doesn't really contain any first-tier Bobby Darin hits, and the total running time clocks in only at about 25 minutes, this is still a fun mix of songs that amply shows off the versatility and showmanship of Mr. Darin. Equally at home doing rock & roll or adult standards, Mr. Darin was a true original, and these songs entertainingly emphasize different aspects of his talent.

Cheery, old time rock and roll. Not high art, but definitely fun.

Outside of the well-known hits, I found nothing of interest on this album. I listened to it once, and that was it. Your mileage may vary, of course.
