This was one of Bobby's early hits; an English version of the French track: La Mer by Charles Trenet.
Darin personified the American big band performers and rock and roll teen idols of the late 1950s and early 1960s but as time progressed he became concerned with the human rights and social injustice of the time.
His late 1960s material was more folk inspired and even touching on blue-eyed-soul in the Commitment album (69) before he did two albums for Motown.
Darin, unbeknown to his fans had suffered with heart trouble his whole life and sadly died in 1973 following an operation intended on helping his condition.
