There are sixteen songs on this CD including short monologues.

Goode," "Work Song," and Beyond The Sea."
Listeners will be moved by the sensitivity of Darin's vocals in his own composition, "A Simple Song Of Freedom," which has as much lasting impact and meaning in the 1960s as it does today. For a look at what Darin could do with blues and country, give a listen to "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight."
