June 26, 2015 Record of the Day

Bobby-DarinBobby Darin was truly a man of many talents. He was a 1950s teen idol, a swinging Big Band crooner in the style of Frank Sinatra, a Blues singer rivaling Ray Charles, and a successful actor. Darin was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in “Capt. Newman M.D.” He was also somewhat of a psychic, predicting that he would die at an early age. He was only 37 when his heart gave out. His 1960 album “Bobby Darin for Teenagers Only,” released on ATCO records, is worth up to $150.00 today. Bobby Darin is among the over 65,000 recording artists you’ll find on the “Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide” on CD listing the values for over a million records. It’s available in the left hand column. Also check out our new companion guide, “Records You Should Know About.” Just click on the link in the yellow strip above.
