5.0 out of 5 stars No longer the Wanderer, Dion is still Majestic 28 Nov 2002
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Dion is one of my all-time favorite “oldies” singers, and his efforts of more recent years (such as this 1989 album), though different from his old doo-wop days, are no less impressive. His voice has mellowed over the years, but the passion is still there, as is the old Dion swagger. King of the New York Streets is a bold and brassy musical expose, while Yo Frankie is another song seasoned by a bold sound. I’ve Got to Get to You and Loving You is Killing Me are somewhat formulaic, but Dion’s great lyrics make them quite enjoyable and catchy. Always in the Rain and Tower of Love are softer tunes, really showcasing Dion’s great vocals. Slow and sentimental characterizes the final track Serenade, which is really a beautiful song with touching, poetic lyrics. And the Night Stood Still and Always in the Rain are two of the best songs to be found here, infused with a steady beat that suits Dion’s voice well, but the truly incredible song on this album is Written on the Subway Wall/Little Star. I feel that this song is as good as many of the old classics from Dion and the Belmonts, and the Little Star bridge creates a direct temporal link between the old days and the new.
Although I am too young to have heard Dion in his youthful prime, I have been a fan of his for many years now, and this album really made me wax nostalgic. Dion’s lyrics contain traces of his own life’s story and musical soul, and that gives them the type of power that few singers can boast of. It is important to make note of the talent that came together to produce this album, making evident how respected a singer Dion remains by others in the music industry. Bryan Adams, K.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent old time rock and roll 21 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a superb rock and roll album, crafted by that old master of the genre Dion DiMucci. This man really knows how to put together a song - and really put some passion into it. More than 10 years after its release this album is still fresh and very easy to listen to. If you want an antidote to the heartless drivel that today's so-called "artists" release and really want to re-live the rock and roll years, when to rock also meant to swing then I heartily recommend this album - treat yourself to this 'forgotten" gem of an album from a truly superb singer/songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent.. 5 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this as a new plastic album in 1989.. it was superb. Somewhere in between a number of house moves.. it went missing.
I have checked second-hand stores for ages but never found a copy.. or a replacement CD. Was I the only person in the UK interested in this..?
And, then, whilst checking Amazon for the recording. a notice that the CD would be re-issued..! Deep joy. On the issue date I duly ordered my copy and it's been played to death ever since. I've now found an original video on Youtube, released by the record company at the time.. of a track called "And the night stood still" Magic.. try it. Film quality is a bit iffy, but the music's sound..[sorry!]
We all have albums' where the good are mixed with average.. not here.. I would say that the whole album is of real quality and.. the cast of players.. where to start. All in all.. simply MAGNIFICENT and at todays prices.. a bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album 22 Feb 2012
By chris
Format:Audio CD
A friend lent me a cassette of this ages ago. All i knew was "The Wanderer" which i don't like.What a great artist and voice.He is revered by his peers and you can hear Dave Edmunds in the production.I am a great fan of the drummer Terry Williams and he is doing his stuff on this album as you'd expect.What can I say? Good songs, great sound and a great voice.What was I doing when this came out? this album is quite hard to find but a gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 28 April 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I'd had this on tape for years, but hadn't listened to it in ages. I wanted to put in on my MP3 player so ended up having to buy a CD. When CD arrived I played it and all I can say is......Wow!.......I'd forgotten how good it was. I was dancing(which I can't)around the room, singing(which I can't)at the top of my voice and was in tears. It's a real rollercoaster of emotions sung with such beautiful vocals. If you haven't heard this in ages, buy it. If you haven't heard this Dion CD before, buy it. If you haven't heard Dion before, buy it, you're in for a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yo Dion you still got it 9 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
I still have my original LP that I bought in 1989, I had forgotten how good this album is.Great songs, great vocal performance and great musicians. This guy had his first hits 30years before this album came out and one listen will tell you he has still got it. He is best known for songs like Runaround Sue and the Wanderer songs that have stood the test of time as they still get airplay on the oldies station. He has matured and this album is as good as any of his early stuff, one listen and you will love it, now the cd is out I will be upgrading. GIVE THIS A LISTEN YOU WILL WANT A COPY
