BOBBY DARIN…”DREAM LOVER” / “BULLMOOSE

1057270064_image003_xlargeBOBBY DARIN WOULD CHART ONE OF HIS MOST ENDURING TUNES OF HIS CAREER ON APRIL 20, 1959…THE SINGLE RECORD ON ATCO RECORDS LABEL (6140) IS THE CLASSIC…”DREAM LOVER”. IT WOULD CHART AT A HIGH OF #2 ON THE BILLBOARD HOT 100, #4 ON THE BILLBOARD R&B CHART, CHARTING ON MAY 18, 1959 AND #3 ON THE TOP 100 POP ON THE NATION’S HIT PARADE…ALSO CHARTING ON APRIL 20, 1959

“DREAM LOVER” WOULD BECOME A MILLION SELLING SINGLE RECORD….OFTEN OVERLOOKED IS THE FLIP SIDE OF THIS RECORD…”BULLMOOSE” A GREAT ROCK TUNE THAT DID NOT CHART, BUT RECEIVED AIR PLAY…HAD IT BEEN RELEASED AS A SINGLE ON ITS OWN…I BELIEVE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIG HIT. OF COURSE AFTER “DREAM LOVER” BOBBY WOULD CHANGE MUSICAL DIRECTION AND RECORD THE CLASSIC…”MACK THE KNIEF”, “BEYOND THE SEA” AND OTHER GREAT HITS AND THEN CHANGE DIRECTION ON CAPITOL RECORDS WITH SOME COUNTRY FLAVORED RECORDINGS AND THEN AGAIN ON ATLANTIC RECORDS WITH GREAT FOLK TUNES.

WE HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY HEARING “DREAM LOVER” AND THE ROCKIN’ “BULLMOOSE”…JUST ONE OF THE GREAT SINGLE RECORDS BY THE GREAT BOBBY DARIN.

TILL THE NEXT TIME…JOE (JOE T)
