Most of Dion's recorded output is available on CD, including a lot of material not released at the time, but a lot of it is in the form of compilations and it is impossible to collect without ending up with a lot of duplications. The Road I'm On is an overview of Dion's time with the Columbia label, between 1962 and 1966, during which time he producing two albums and a dozen singles. Both albums were named after huge hit singles, Ruby Baby and Donna The Prima Donna. A third album of outtakes, Wonder Where I'm Bound, was released in 1968, long after Dion had left the label.

Of the 35 tracks on this 2CD, a dozen are previously unreleased and a few more are first-time stereo re-issues. Seven tracks are duplicated from an earlier compilation, Bronx Blues, which had twelve tracks not included here, though some are merely alternate versions or mixes.

Dion was in the process of breaking away from his doo-wop roots during this period, and exploring the burgeoning folk-rock scene as well as discovering a deep love for the blues, long before the British invasion of the blues and beat groups that introduced the form to the US mainstream. A few of these came out on singles, such as Hoochie Coochie Man (the only mono mix on this 2CD) and Spoonful, but mostly they stayed in the vaults. His folk-rock leanings were sometimes quite derivative of Bob Dylan. As well as covering It's All Over Now Baby Blue some of his own songs were blatant pastiches of Dylan songs, as Dion struggled for direction. The unreleased My Love, for example, owes a lot to Love Minus Zero Equals No Limit.

This was a serious surprise. Three distinct periods are covered by this CD and none are light weight. OK, the early period is early sixties pop, but even that is OK. then it takes off.

Dion has made great music for 50 years and is still doing so. Long live the 'King of the New York streets'
