Bobby Darin was probably the most versatile and fearless vocalist of his generation, fully capable and willing to tackle The Great American Songbook, rock and roll and even folk music with his impeccable phrasing and warm tone. So why should his Christmas album be any less adventuresome? The 25th Day of December with Bobby Darin alternates between reverential, traditional readings of songs like “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Ave Maria” and “Dona Nobis Pacem” to rousing, gospel-inflected numbers like “Child of God,” “Go Tell It on the Mountain” and “Jehovah Hallelujah,” with great backing (on the gospel songs) by the Bobby Scott Chorale. This all-time Christmas classic from 1960 has somehow been out of print for a while; our Real Gone release offers a first time ever STEREO reissue, complete with a bonus track (in mono), “Christmas Auld Lang Syne.” Darin expert James Ritz provides the liner notes and rare single picture sleeves.
