The lost 1965 Columbia album arrives- 52 years later! Here it is on compact disc with all of Dion's blueswailin', folk-blazin', rock n' stormin' monsters, track after track after track.
Cut in '65 with producer Tom Wilson on all but three tracks, this album was slated, then shelved, for reasons that come to light in Scott Kempner's illuminating liners.
Whoever's got the crown, label it Dimucci and express it to Dion, with love. Absolutely Essential.! Also available on Vinyl LP and pick up the 45 RPM vinyl single (non-LP b-side)!

"They didn't sign Chuck Berry or Little Richard or Jerry Lee Lewis. Those guys were from outer space! No, they signed a good-looking Italian kid from the Bronx, and threw their plans, hopes and dollar dreams behind that!"
(Dion, reflecting on his tenure at Columbia Records)
 ,-
"Dion comes from a time when so-so singers couldn't cut it they either never got heard or got exposed quick and got out of the way. To have it, you really had to have it, no smoke and mirrors then—not a minute to spare—rough and ready glorious and grand—grieving with heartache and feeling too much but still with the always "better not try it" attitude. If you want to hear a great singer, listen to Dion. His voice takes
its color from all palettes he's never lost it—his genius has never deserted him." (Bob Dylan)

A Teenager In Love

The pride of the Bronx, Dion and The Belmonts personified the best in Italian-American doo-wop, by now flourishing across the boroughs of New York City. Lead singer Dion DiMucci describes his quartet's brawny sound as "black music filtered through an Italian neighborhood and comes out with an attitude: 'Yo!' It's true. It has all those elements. But the New York Italian-American, there's an element of, 'Yo! You talkin' to me?' There's this kind of idea, like you come across like you're supposed to know everything. I don't know where I got that idea, because it's absurd. But anyway, that's the attitude. I would say it's a confidence."

DiMucci assembled his Belmonts from the mean streets of his home turf, gathering first tenor Angelo D'Aleo, second tenor Fred Milano, and baritone/bass Carlo Mastrangelo. Their infectious I Wonder Why was a pop hit in the spring of 1958 on brothers Bob and Gene Schwartz's freshly minted Laurie Records, and they were just getting started (it's on our previous compilation). For their next Laurie outing, Dion and his cronies gave Fats Domino's I Can't Go On (Rosalie) a rocking reading, but it was the butter-smooth ballad flip No One Knows that made the charts late that summer, actually bettering I Wonder Why at #19 pop. Before year's end, they charted again with another tender ballad, Don't Pity Me.

Brill Building denizens Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman were about to embark on an incredible songwriting roll, having just handed Fabian his first smash. "I wanted to do 'Turn Me Loose,'" notes Dion. "I liked 'Turn Me Loose.'" The prolific duo had something special for Dion and The Belmonts too. "The way 'A Teenager In Love' came in, Ricky Nelson had 'Poor Little Fool.' So I kind of sang it to The Belmonts, and they started doing this thing," says Dion. "Then Mort Shuman and Doc Pomus, they had another song, I forget what it was called. And they kind of changed it to 'Teenager In Love,' and put that together. So it was kind of wonderful to just kind of sit on this blanket, the sound that the group was making. But definitely, if you listen to 'Poor Little Fool,' you can hear what kind of inspired it.' Waxed March 3, 1959 and issued on the same month with the mellow I've Cried Before on the flip, A Teenager In Love was a #5 pop smash that spring. Dion and The Belmonts were now teen idols. DiMucci wisely never underestimated the value of his songwriters.

"Doc Pomus was like a father to me, very much so. He really encouraged me. I miss him. He was just a great guy. I just used to like talking to Doc. Mort Shuman I loved. Mort Shuman was totally incredible," says Dion. "He was a great guy to hang out with. He was so interesting. I loved being with him."
