    While there have been numerous Dion/Dion w/Belmonts CD’s that have come and gone, this effort out of the German Repertoire label is a superb accomplishment. This single-disc greatest hits collection is the first true gathering of greatest hits for Dion’s entire career. While there are some minor charted records not included here, these twenty tracks represent every invasion of the top-40 by Dion, solo and with the Belmonts. Indicative of the completeness of this set is the inclusion of “Be Careful Of Stones That You Throw”, a tune nearly always ignored in other Dion collections.

    Sound quality is excellent – on a par with the work that Ace Records did with the Dion Laurie catalog some time ago. All tracks except four, six and eight are in true stereo. Liner notes are sparse – comprising a brief, half-page synopsis of Dion’s career – but is offered in both English and German.

    A six-star rating in deserved to some degree simply because Repertoire has produced exactly what it calls this disc – Dion and the Belmonts’ Greatest Hits – and has done it extremely well. If only one single-CD Dion disc is going into a collection, this unquestionably deserves top priority.

    One very talented artist from the late 1950s and 1960s that has slid from public notice is Dion Dimucci, more popularly known simply as Dion. Starting with a group of neighborhood pals as �Dion and the Belmonts�, he rose literally from the streets of New York to become one of the most successful pop recording artists of the era. Competing against other perpetual hit machines like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Dion produced a steady stream of chart busters throughout the early and mid 1960s. All of that music, as well as his return to public acclaim with the fabulously successful �Abraham, Martin, and John� near the end of the decade after the assassinations of both Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy.

    Most of his chartbusters are here, from his initial success with the Belmonts with �Teenager In Love� to �The Still Of The Night� to �Where Or When� to his fabulously popular �The Wanderer�, which touted the smarmy style of swaggering, wildly pompadoured teenage males playing the irresistible male stereotype as best they knew how, with skin tight Levis and form-fit white tees shirts, rolled-up sleeves and all. And the flood of similar songs also making the top ten are also here, including �Runaround Sue�, �Ruby Baby�, �Donna The Prima Donna�, �The Majestic�, �Drip Drop�, and on and on. Here we find such gems as �Sandy�, �This Little Girl�, �Be Careful Of Stones That You Throw�, and �Little Dian�. Listening to this collection is like stepping back in time to my own adolescence, when life was simpler and the radio was filled with a stream of non-stop hits from a plethora of artists, who, like Dion, seemed to be able to just keep pumping them out, one after another, with almost monotonous regularity. Enjoy!
