Dion – The Blues Wanderer

Dion DiMucci knows how to sing and he knows just the right way to craft these songs, these blues songs.”  This quote is taken from the liner notes of Dion’s terrific new album “Blues With Friends” and, as endorsements go, you couldn’t get a better one as the sentiment comes from none other than Bob Dylan. Most folks are familiar with Dion’s early hits with his group The Belmonts, as they created some of the most exciting and vital doo-wop music with chart-toppers like “Teenager In Love” and “I Wonder Why”. When Dion ventured out as a solo artist success followed him as he had a string of number one hits including “The Wanderer”, “Ruby Baby” and “Runaround Sue”. Beyond his unmistakable voice is the fact that he was and still is a great songwriter, as the 14 stellar nuggets he crafted for the new album will attest to. But is it authentic blues? Just ask Bob.
