5.0 out of 5 stars BLUES AT IT'S ACOUSTIC BEST. 5 Feb 2007
By Jeff C.
Format:Audio CD
All Dion mean't to me was the Wanderer etc, I was never a fan of his songs, infact meaning no offence I did'nt know if he was still alive.I saw this album by chance on the net and was interested because the choice of songs on the album, so I managed to listen to samples on Amazon.com and was hooked. Dion has got a voice that sings the blues with brilliant style, with the songs stripped down to vocals, acoustic guitar and percussion this is a must! for anyone who enjoys blues. This is the best Blues album I've heard in ages and is up there with joe Bonamassa although there is a big age different there is no difference in quality. If you like acoustic blues i.e Clapton on unplugged this is for you. FANTASTIC C.D. Buy it now

4.0 out of 5 stars WANDERIN' AT THE CROSSROADS 25 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Dion DiMucci was always the Blues but now he dedicates a whole album to the genre.

In this trip from the urban sprall of the New York Streets he graduates to that stretch of road that gifted the "devil's music" to Robert Johnson. With a basic acoustic sound this trip features what every Blues purist would call "The Works".

He really should tour more, this material is so accessible to a Concert environment,but I suppose the hope is greater than the need.Or as someone who worked with Dion on his great 'Yo Frankie' album put it to me "You know Dion is a great chap but his manager is the problem".

This is a truly outstanding album. The old fella shows that even after a lifetime of making exceptional music he stills knows how to use that voice to maximum effect. I've lived with the various styles adopted by Dion for over 40 years and the Blues always seemed to me to represent exactly where he belonged. I heard him sing a Blues version of "Too Much Monkey Business" at the Lincoln Folk Festival in the 70's and this album is a marvellous continuation of that theme. Anyone who can keep still to "I let my baby do that" "Who Do You Love" or "Walking Blues" needs an electric shock to revive them. Just listen and smile out loud.
God bless you my old mate, here's to the next 40 years!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but.... 21 Jan 2010
By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a little late coming to Dion, even though I've been aware of him since the late 50's when I heard his early teen hits. But then 1963 happened and everything changed. Forty-six years later and a Blues fan (among other styles of music) I picked up Son of Skip James, an album which knocked me for six with its terrific interpretations of a number of standard blues songs. Following that I dipped back into his past, finding some interesting stuff which I've also recently reviewed.

And then came this one. It's good all right. Dion is one the great contemporary singers who deserves a higher profile than he has (ignoring his long gone teen idol days) as he developed into a genuine artist. It's a spartan album, just (well-played) acoustic guitar by Dion himself and a little understand percussion to underpin his excellent vocals. It's just a little samey. Son of Skip James is a far better album because there's more variety of style and more depth added by piano and keyboards, it also sounds tougher. Fans of acoustic blues will really enjoy this but, unlike that later album I've already cited, it won't convert anyone who isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece ! 31 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I heard this CD being recommended on a local radio show. Took a gamble, bought it on holiday in NY, and was quite simply blown away by it. It was my vacation CD so maybe I am just a little bit prejudiced ! Just so user friendly and listenable-to time and time again. Now looking for other Dion stuff. Great intro to Blues if you are not necessarily a Blues Afficianado.
