Darin Swings in Canadian TV Special
4 February 2005 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

1970 TV special, shot in Toronto, with Bobby Darin hosting an enjoyable hour-long (well, actually 42 minutes) variety show with guests George Burns, Linda Ronstadt (lovely, doing "A Long, Long Time," accompanied by BD on guitar) and the Poppy Family (Canadian pop-rock duo of "Which Way You Going, Billy?" infamy). It's like Vegas, but with more Canadian Content. Darin covers "Hi-De-Ho" by Blood Sweat & Tears, probably because it was written by a Canadian. The video quality is a little soft, which kind of adds to the period feel. Darin's toupee has a few bad moments in the opening number (Jackie Wilson's "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher"), but his fancy footwork makes up for it. The Fagin medley is a bit much, though...

The "Mack is Back" DVD, taken from a 1973 live show, has more music, better picture quality and extras.
