Among only a handful of entertainers who bridged the gap between '50s rock fans and their Sinatra-loving parents, Bronx-born pop legend Bobby Darin's life and career were short but extraordinary. In 1959 the singer/composer rocketed to stardom with 2 Grammy Awards-Best New Artist and Record of the Year for the #1 smash "Mack the Knife." His other signature smash provides the title for this biopic chronicling his genre-defying music, tempestuous marriage to starlet Sandra Dee, and untimely death at age 37-in 1973-from a heart defect acquired during a childhood illness. Kate Bosworth stars as Dee, and Darin is brought to life by Academy Award®-winner Kevin Spacey, who also directed the film and sings 18 of the artist's classic hits.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Liner Note Author: Kevin Spacey.
Muze PNote Kevin Spacey harbored a longtime fascination with Bobby Darin that ultimately pushed him to direct and star in BEYOND THE SEA, a biopic about the singer. Taking things a step further, Spacey--known as a talented mimic--sang a host of Darin classics in the film, as captured on the soundtrack album. While Spacey's vocal impression isn't exactly blindfold-test material (his tone isn't as big and brassy as Darin's), he does a far more impressive job than anyone might have expected. The authentically recreated arrangements match Spacey step for step, from the rock & roll of "Splish Splash" to the swinging staple "Mack the Knife" to the folk-rock of the Tim Hardin-penned "If I Were a Carpenter." The latter is an especially interesting study in pop-cultural evolution, as Darin's original version was virtually a carbon copy of Hardin's, and Spacey engages in some third-party meta-interpretation. Ultimately, the goal here seems to be that of paying tribute to Darin, and Spacey comes across as a completely earnest acolyte of the late, chameleonic vocalist.
