Bobby Darin: According to The Hollywood Reporter, A host of rare Bobby Darin recordings and performance footage make up the CD/DVD package "Aces Back to Back."
Assembled with the help of the late artist's estate, the set is due Sept. 14 from Hyena Records. Both discs feature songs from the early 1970s television variety series "The Bobby Darin Show," marking the first time the performances are being made commercially available.
Along with several of his own songs, including "Beyond the Sea," highlights include covers of "Alone Again Naturally" and "Dream," the latter a duet with Petula Clark. The audio disc features the fabled "Milk Recordings," collected from a daily, five-minute jazz vocal radio broadcast series sponsored by the American Dairy Assn. Listeners will be able to hear Darin's renditions of "Blue Skies," "Moon River" and "All the Way" for the first time since those broadcasts.
The DVD is rounded out by black-and-white footage from a documentary that Darin was making about his own life that has never been seen outside of his estate. The clips are narrated by George Burns.
