• Edsel continues its programme of reissues from the legendary multi-talented entertainer Bobby Darin.
• “Commitment” is the second of his two folk-protest albums, recorded for his own label Direction, in 1969, and was the only album he ever released under the name “Bob Darin”.
• The second part of this release rounds up the non-album single sides and two songs unreleased at the time from the sessions for the “Commitment” album. It concludes with four songs recorded during Darin’s series of performances at The Troubadour Club in Los Angeles, 13th – 18th May 1969.
• Included amongst the live recordings is the public debut of “Sing A Simple Song Of Freedom”, perhaps the best of Bobby Darin’s protest songs. It was first taken into the charts by Tim Hardin, whose song “If I Were A Carpenter” had been a Top 10 hit for Darin in 1966.
