"Hello Dolly to Goodbye Charlie" Sessions
Bobby discussing this
album and Richard Wess with Jack Wagner
Below is a listing of the musicians appearing in the liner notes of
Bobby Darin's Capitol LP Hello Dolly to Goodbye Charlie. Bobby also added
to the notes, with his signature, here:
"Just in case the big band sounds familiar, the
last time you heard it it was swinging behind me
on "Mack the Knife" and I haven't felt as good
in front of a band since. In other words, Richard
Wess, welcome back.
By the way, if you know how a record is made,
you won't have to read the following. If you don't,
then believe me, any record you ever hear is only
as good as its producer and engineer. My thanks
to Jim Economides and Eddie Brackett.
sincerest thanks to the following...."
