  • Dion And The Belmonts - Wish Upon A Star With + 2 bonus (180 gram) (LP)


    This essential LP release presents Dions magnificent second album with The Belmonts, Wish Upon a Star, which was originally released in 1960 on the Laurie label. It helped define the exact nature of early New York vocal rock & roll. It is perhaps more doo-wop oriented than its predecessor (the debut LP Presenting Dion & The Belmonts), with its title tune, a Bizarro World version of ””Swinging on a Star,”” and a reading of ””In the Still of the Night”” that doubtless would have puzzled composer Cole Porter. Other album highlights include A Lovers Prayer, and All the Things You Are, as well as the standards ””Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words),”” Its Only a Paper Moon, September Song, and the Christmas staple When the Red, Red, Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin Along.

    The group’s take on Doc Pomus & Mort Shumans composition My Private Joy, reveals some of the real depth behind Dion DiMucci even at this early stage of his career. He may have looked and sounded like a teen idol on some of those numbers, but he had a musical soul that transcended the limitations of teen pop. DiMucci was responsible for some of the best white rock & roll to come out of New York during this era.

    ’In addition to the original album, this WaxTime collectors LP also contains 2 bonus tracks from the same period Teen Angel, and the soulful Faith.
