To correct the misinformation below. The short-lived Clarion series was released in the summer of 1965. Many sites, for unfathomable reasons, state 1964, but the June 19, 1965 issue of Billboard has an article on Page 8 touting the new label, which was a subsidiary of Atco, and therefore didn't license anything. Clarion was an answer to the proliferation of budget labels and $1.99 list price product that began with RCA Camden back in the mid'50s. Clarion was more in keeping with Metro, MGM's budget label, and even more short-lived, since it was dropped by the end of the year, though given what it was, it's uncertain why they bailed on it so quickly, since reissuing existing catalog with cheap covers and no record sleeves worked for just about everyone else.

Clementine was released by Clarion Records in 1964, three years after The Bobby Darin Story. The company licensed ten previously released songs from Atco for this collection, though it is not billed as a compilation. Clementine is packaged strangely, because there is no essay on the back cover (the mark of a new release) and no explicit concept like "greatest hits" or "songs you might have missed." The latter would be a good description for some of the songs here, like "Spring Is Here" and "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry," which are currently unavailable on CD. Clementine is not a best-of, but does contain one song each from Winners and It's You or No One, two from This Is Darin, and three from For Teenagers Only and Love Swings. In addition to the unavailable tunes, the highlight of this otherwise dull collection is "That Lucky Old Sun," popularized by Louis Armstrong. Clementine is a good LP if you want the two non-CD songs and like vinyl. Otherwise, there are more essential CD releases.
