“Love Swings”; “Two Of A Kind”; “The Bobby Darin Story” and “Oh! Look At Me Now”.
Walden Robert Cassotto, otherwise better known as Bobby Darin was born in Harlem New York City in 1936. His initial ambition was to become an actor and to this end he left formal education and joined a travelling theatre group to play an Indian Chief! However as time went on music began to take over his life as he began to learn to play the piano and crucially write his own songs. He began getting jobs writing, singing and playing on commercial jingles. By 1956 Darin had signed his first recording contract and by 1957 had signed to Atco Records. “Splish Splash” would follow a year later. Many hits and International fame were to follow when in 1959 he signed a contract with Paramount Pictures and the oft longed for acting career began. However, although many thought his music career was over, Bobby Darin had other ideas and music continued to be his first passion for the rest of his life. What made Bobby Darin so special? Perhaps the key was the fact that he wrote many of his own songs, something that was extremely rare in the 1950’s. How many classics had Sinatra or Bennett or Crosby written? There is a strong case to say that Darin foreshadowed the era of the great singer songwriters of the 1970’s. Here’s his early story for you to enjoy.
