I've uploaded some more rare Bobby darin to youtube. This is his solo segment which finished the Kraft Sounds of the Sixties Tv Special in 1968. He sings Splish Splash (at a very 60s piano!), Take a Whiff On Me and Long Line Rider. I don't think I've ever seen Darin look so contented as he blasts through these songs in demin, with his moustache and sans toupee during his protest phase. I'm not sure that the Vegasy arrangement of Long Line Rider did anything for record sales, for I much prefer the rockier version on the single and LP. Take a Whiff On Me is otherwise unrecorded by Darin.
Take a Whiff on me has been on youtube in the past but in dire quality. I haven't see the other two performances on there before.
