Editorial Reviews

Even after having parted ways with the Atlantic Records subsidiary Atco some two years earlier, Bobby Darin's continued successes encouraged the label to issue any and all usable recordings that the artist had cut during his four-year tenure (circa 1958-1962). However, unlike some of the less focused entries to have come from their previous vault excavations, Winners (1964) hails from a two-day session circa February 1960. Ironically, this would also be the final title from their cache of stashed masters. Another possible motivating factor was the achievement of the lead track "Milord," an Edith Piaf cornerstone that Darin turned into a surprising chart hit Stateside -- even though he performed it entirely in French. "Golden Earrings," which was the B-side of the single, is also featured on this dozen-song collection. Those cuts are decidedly off-model from the remainder of the effort, which is somewhat of a departure for the vocalist. Instrumentally, the small jazz combo perfectly suits the material, primarily consisting of pop music standards and jazz classics. In typical Darin style, he turns in thoroughly captivating readings. Granted, there are few (if any) plateaus, among the highlights are the Latin take on "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" or the laid-back "Hard Hearted Hannah," which is perfectly augmented by Larry Bunker's tasty, if not slightly restrained vibraphone licks. The finger-poppin' "I've Found a New Baby" is tasty with some refined backing and a suave vocal that is almost tailor-made for the likes of Frank Sinatra. This rendition of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes" rates as one of the more interesting offerings, with its solid and purposeful syncopated rhythms. That said, "Easy Living" is perhaps the most emotive and exquisite cut on Winners. It is unfathomable to consider that it was initially deemed not worthy of release, as it remained unissued for over two years. The remarkable breadth of Darin's interpretation has rarely been equalled and likewise serves as a personal best. In 2003, as part of a digital overhaul of Darin's Atlantic Records-related legacy, Collectors' Choice Music brought this platter to CD for the first time. ~ Lindsay Planer, All Music Guide

So far, there are only 2 reviews on this product...mine, and some guy from Chicago. He didn't actually REVIEW the product. He just talked about how he liked Darin's stage act, all the impressions he did in his show, and a "thank you" to Collector's Choice for releasing all of Darin's Atco albums... You get that?? ALL of his albums! He didn't even comment one iota on THIS album!!

Well, that's where i come in. I will ACTUALLY REVIEW THE PRODUCT.

I have mixed feelings about Winners. 10 of the 12 songs are great songs with Bobby Scott's small jazz combo...something Darin did VERY rarely. This is definitely Darin at his jazziest on record. He really can swing with that small group, and his voice blends in like an instrument in the band.

Here's the problem: There are 2 songs that were added upon the album's original LP release that were not part of these jazz sessions. They are two goofy singles they were trying to promote, and they're pretty bad (Milord & Golden Earrings). Since most albums back then (particularly ALL of Darin's) were recorded with 12 songs, it makes me wonder if they actually recorded 12 songs with Bobby Scott, then replaced 2 of them with these two awful singles. All the jazz tracks with Bobby Scott were recorded 2 years before the album's release, so it makes me feel there ARE 2 missing songs. If so, Collector's choice should have released those two missing songs as bonus tracks.

Due to having these two awful singles, and possible lack of the two missing songs, i give this album 4 stars.

My wife has been a Darin fan since the early 60's and she likes this CD and other Darin CD's , and as long she listens to what she wants, I can do what I want, which is fine.

Thank you kindly Collectors Choice for re-issuing the marvelous Bobby Darin lps. We won't see the likes of Bobby D. again I fear. The range of his work, his talent as a writer, performer, actor, and just plain magnificent showman are sorely missed. I recall his night club act in which he played every instrument in the orchestra and then did an entire scene impersonating Clark Gable, Jack Benny, Marlon Brando, Cagney, Durante et. all. The material was absolutely funny and he was almost as good as the great, recently passed Frank Gorshin. Sorry kids, I don't think Eminem or Kwane West or the other dreck out there will be on stage 20 years from now. Darin did it all in 37 too short years! And yes, the recording is tremendous hi-fi stereo. We miss ya Bobby D.

Snappy selection of songs from Bobby Darin from his Capitol records days. This doesn't contain the familiar Darin hits, but they demonstrate Darin's musical range.
