Bobby Rydell Salutes the Great Ones/Rydell at the Copa

These two 1961 albums (presented here in their original stereo mixes) represented an effort by Bobby to move beyond the limitations of his teen idol persona. By recording a live album at the Copa, Bobby was following a well-trodden trail left by other pop male vocalists like Bobby Darin and Paul Anka, and “The Great Ones” in the title of the first record refers to the songs from The Great American Songbook that he covers on the album.
