Doo Wop It's Not!,
This review is from: Son Of Skip James (Audio CD)
I bought the vinyl 'Sanctuary' in the seventies played it a lot and really enjoyed it, then for some reason neglected my interest in Dion until 2007. If like me during the Sixties drifted from Chuck Berry into Roots & Blues via the Pye International label which featured a lot of American Blues Artist's. Your going to really like this Album as Dion cover's many of those old Blues numbers you'll recognize immediately, it's one of those Albums you play again straight away just for the sheer enjoyment. Included is one of his own compositions 'The Thunderer' a tune about St Jerome showing he can still construct a good song, a little religious maybe, but then many Old Blues songs were. Track 9 though is a little spoken Interlude from Dion which I think could have been omitted, our American Cousins always seem to want to get some religious or political point over, these 37 seconds the only down side, otherwise it deserves a top rating, buy it you'll like it!
