June 27, 2017 Records of the Day

It all started for Bobby Darin in 1958 with the million-seller “Splish Splash,” a song Darin said he wrote in less than 15 minutes. The list of hits that followed seems endless with such classics as “Dream Lover,” “Beyond the Sea” and the Grammy Award winner “Mack the Knife.” His follow up to “Splish Splash” was the 1959 top-10 hit “Queen of the Hop.” The single, released on ATCO records can sell for $25.00 but the “Queen of the Hop” EP is worth up to $175.00 today.
