The Definitive Pop Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Thirty tracks of Bobby Darin performances, ranging from "Splish Splash" to "If I Were a Carpenter" and beyond, don't come around every day. Granted, Rhino's Definitive Pop Collection could have included at least ten more songs spread across these two discs, but the track selection is peerless and the sound is as good as it gets.
