Bronx Blues: The Columbia Recordings 1962-1965
Blues has always been the cornerstone of this legendary singer's work, and this collection gathers 20 crucial, blues-informed recordings from a pivotal point in not only Dion's career, but from a crucial point in American music as well. They're culled from Dion's early Columbia Records days, when pop charts were populated by safer, less gutsy singers than the great Dion, and right before the bands of the British Invasion set the world on it's ear. With tremendously revitalized sound quality, excellent liner notes and five previously unreleased recordings, this is a set that's sure to thrill. Includes Can't We Be Sweethearts; Little Girl of Mine; a Sunday Kind of Love; Ruby Baby; Flim Flam; Donna the Prima Donna; Drip Drop; Troubled Mind; Sweet Papa Di and more.
