Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Dion (vocals); Sticks Evans (drums); The Del-Satins (background vocals).
  • Includes liner notes by George Werthener.
  • Like his contemporaries the Four Seasons, Bronx, NY native Dion DiMucci provided a bridge from 1950s doo-wop and early rock & roll to '60s pop, much as the first Motown artists were doing in Detroit. Though Dion (one of the first rockers to earn single-name status) scored plenty of hits in the early '60s--not least of which being the raw, sassy title track of this disc--he never came across stronger than on "The Wanderer." This paean to waywardness was full of fun, freedom, lust--in short, all the things that made rock & roll important, not just great, to begin with. A hearty take on Wilbert Harrison's classic "Kansas City" also stands to prove that Dion was no slouch at singing the blues if that's what the situation demanded.
