Dion

Dion and the Belmonts. One of my top 5 doo-wop groups. "I Wonder Why" is one of my top 5 doo-wop songs. Dion is still around.

Runaround Sue but that may be without the Belmonts.

Dion was backed by the Del Satins on a lot of those "solo" recordings like "Runaround Sue," another great one.

Sadly the only Dion most people know nowadays is Celine. The law of diminishing returns I guess.

What about "The Wanderer"? One of my all-time faves even though I wasn't even an idea in my father's head when it was released.

They had a great recording of "Where or When," too. I sure wish I had a Greatest Hits album from them.

I have one, Cap'n.

We saw Dion a month or so ago at the Neil Sedaka tribute concert. He did "Calendar Girl" in his own inimitable style. Great stuff.

Before that, we saw him do free concerts in Brooklyn in the summers of 2003 and 2004.
