Bobby Darin was a gifted one indeed. His legendary musical career broke wide open in the mid-fifties, followed with a plethora of hit recordings in the pop, rock, country and jazz vein. He utilized his short time on earth to share his talents with millions of fans with his records, songwriting, concerts, movies and television shows.
His fortunes carried further into the late fifties as he broke even more ground, creating one of the most beautiful spiritual crossover holiday hit albums of all time with his masterpiece The 25th Day Of December. Featuring stellar Bobby Darin interpretations of inspirational favorites like definitive readings of Holy Holy Holy, Ave Maria and O Come All Ye Faithful, The 25th Day Of December was truly a groundbreaking album for this sorely missed artist.
The 1959 holiday masterpiece finds the artist at the top of his game. Produced by Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun and orchestrated by Bobby Scott, The 25th Day Of December is filled with beautifully arranged renditions of gospel classics like his hit versions of Go Tell It On The Mountain, Child Of God and the wonderful Silent Night, Holy Night.
