Well, it ain't ol' Blue Eyes...

I first heard Mack the Knife sung by Bobby Darin, when I was a kid in the early '70's - it fascinated me right off the bat, even spending some of my not so heard-earned on one of his albums... which wasn't a patch on the one song I bought it for.

Anyways, I'm listening to January's "Music Alliance Pact" collection, & found that I Guess I'm Floating had chosen this excellent & very properly story-telling version of the song, along with an extra verse that lends some atmosphere - although it stands shy of revealing Mackie's true unpleasantness.

This is real good - and he's from just up the street, maybe I can catch a gig sometime?
