AllMusic Review by

Released in the early '60s, here's the first part of Darin's career told by the vocalist himself in a 12-song greatest-hits collection that really works. The narration inserts still function well after all these years, making you realize that this was originally a vinyl album, as Darin negotiates from rock & roller to finger-snapping lounge lizard. Oddly enough, there's a production error at the end that snips off the last tune, "Lazy River," marring an otherwise interesting reissue.
