On March 24, Omnivore Records is going to release one of my Desert Island records, complete with material thought to be missing. The record: Bobby Darin and Johnny Mercer's 1961 album Two of A Kind, recorded with Pittsburgh native Billy May's Orchestra. Seeing the album released in its complete form was the goal of Darin's longtime manager Steve Blauner, who was working with Omnivore Records on the project until he died in 2015 at age 81.
