|Dion - Return Of The Wanderer / Fire In The Night
Between 1978 and theYo Frankie album, Dion Di Mucci abandoned secular music completely and cut nothing but gospel material for 10 years. His swansong in '78 was the album Return Of The Wanderer - this features his band the Streethearts and they play mainly Dion songs but with covers from Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and John Sebastian. However, just before he bailed out for God, one last album was cut in 1979 using much the same band and Cashman & West, the same production team. Up until now this has remained in the can, so it is with great pleasure that Ace Records announce the debut 21 years later of Fire In The Night - the long lost Dion album. The CD combines the two albums and these are the only ways in whichFire In The Night is available anywhere in its entirety. The record had obviously come very close to release in '79 since the cover was already designed and it is this original artwork that we feature here. Great value.

|Dion - Sanctuary / Suite For Late Summer
This completes our set of Dion's Warner Bros studio albums, compiled 2 on 1 with three very hard-to-get bonus tracks. This finds Dion at his most wistful and mellow.
A personal perspective from songwriter BILL TUOHY on the second in our reissue series of Dion's original Warner Bros albums. (Bill co-wrote many of the songs on 1972's Suite For Late Summer and went on to collaborate with Dion on over two hundred songs).
On 18 November 1968 I was living in a contemporary South Miami apartment writing poetry and songs that I was convinced the world needed to hear. Propelled by all those creative, magical songs pouring from my radio throughout the 1960s, I craved to become a part of that musical movement.
Dion's Abraham, Martin And John was the #1 record in an American musical scene normally dominated by everything British. My political idealism had been shattered forever as Bobby Kennedy lay dying after his victory in the California primary, months earlier. As Dion's plaintive voice soared sorrowfully above the harps and violins, I saw Bobby's clear silhouette rise and join Abraham, Martin and John at the top of that hill.
Dion was appearing at The Flick, a coffee house in Miami. I set off to find him. After seeing an extraordinary performance, I wandered back behind the row of stores. There, nearly hidden in the alley shadows, and sitting on top of a huge trash can was Dion, softly playing his guitar. Bob Lang introduced us, and that was the beginning. We talked, laughed, and I gave him copies of my songs, hoping he would find time to at least look at them. Dion called me days later with his guitar in his arms. "I love your lyrics, man!"
In the following three decades we would work on over two hundred songs. They would include blues, rock, folk, spiritual, country, television themes...Unlike most other collaborations, we never had an argument.
Fred Neil, Joni Mitchell, John Sebastian, Jimmy Buffet and John Lee Hooker appeared often at The Flick. It was a serious time for serious songs about everything important. Sometimes Dion came over to my place after his shows. He admired my lyrics and I was absolutely enthralled by the way his fingers could make guitar strings speak with emotion. In those days Fred Neil made us think, Gabe Kaplan made us laugh and the whole folk-rock scene instilled us with a desperate desire to create music.
Soft Parade Of Years is our only perfect song. We were picturing a man sitting on a curb watching as the people and events of his life pass before like a silent procession. It remains the only song we've written that we have never wanted to change - not a note - not a syllable.
Tennessee Madonna is a verbal portrait of an ideal girl: touched by everything around her, natural in every way. It was the only time we created a song that was both erotic and spiritual. To this day, Dion's sensitive treatment of these songs always gives me a rush.
We wrote Seagull on a Florida beach at twilight...or perhaps the birds created it for us. Near the close of the song, when Dion cries, "Fly seagull", and those strings whirl up into an impossible note, I am transformed to that day at the beach where the salt water was running through my younger toes.
We have always felt that children have the ability to look under everything we try to be and truly see us as ourselves. Jennifer Knew, is our attempt to describe that notion. Those violins, trailing away at the end of the song, are a musical image of that perceptive and wise child...dancing off...fading in the distance.
I wish everyone alive could have the opportunity to feel something in their heart, rationalise it in their mind, describe it in words, then finally hear it set to music. There has been no other sensation as exhilarating in all my human experience (Ace Records):

|Dion - Sit Down Old Friend / You're Not Alone
Given the constrictions that bind most artists to their public persona, Dion's reinvention of himself in the early years of the 70s in both his music and his message, is a remarkable achievement. Over the course of four albums, Sit Down Old Friend, You're Not Alone, Sanctuary and Suite For Late Summer, released between 1970 and 1972, the singer and songwriter completely redefined the expressive potential of his own music. Sit Down Old Friend and You're Not Alone receive their first-ever compact disc reissue here.
As with the virtuosity of his early doo wop persona, Dion's new musical identity was the result of an extensive period of experimentation and assimilation. In 1965, during his last year with Columbia, he recorded a wealth of material that mirrored his new-found enthusiasm for the blues. Always an artist of wide-ranging tastes - from the Italian lullabies of his Bronx neighbourhood to the country laments of Hank Williams - Dion's discovery of Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters and the other towering legends of the idiom, was nothing less than a revelation. He would go on to record an entire album of classic blues material that year, an album that Columbia, frustrated in its attempts to polish and package the young singer, refused to release.
Undeterred, Dion continued to listen and learn, haunting the Greenwich Village clubs where bluesmen mingled freely with folk-rock's troubadours and any number of the era's more assiduous innovators. The result of this crash course in Sixties eclecticism was a developing style that melded his rich tenor tones with spare arrangements accentuating the intent and intonation of each note.
It was a style personified in the 1968 hit Abraham, Martin And John, a song that not only clinched Dion's comeback status after a four year absence from the charts but, more importantly, signalled a clean break with the past and was a clear indicator of what was to follow. Over the course of the next twelve months, he would go on to cut versions of Purple Haze and Both Sides Now, as well as release Dion, a new album whose title seemed to sum up the singer's reassertion of his own creative identity. In June of 1970, he would sign with Warner Bros. Records, a company whose reputation for artistic leeway proved an irresistible draw to a performer whose appreciation for liberation had, by then, extended far beyond his music.
On the credits of Sit Down Old Friend, Dion's Warner Bros. Records debut album, an enigmatic thanks for "spiritual guidance" is given to one "Jack Butterfield". The story behind that acknowledgement is as significant to Dion's transformation as any musical influence reflected on the album's eleven solo acoustic guitar and vocal tracks. The artist's addiction to heroin, which began in the back alleys and pool halls of his Bronx neighbourhood, had become a life-long struggle to reclaim his self-esteem and spiritual integrity. During his heyday at Columbia he would often park cars in the company lot so that the attendant, who doubled as his connection, could chase down a dime bag for the label's highest paid artist. Heroin was just one face of the hydra-headed monster that had gripped the singer's life. Marijuana, alcohol, uppers and downers of every variety - Dion's was an all-too familiar tale of dizzying highs and dismal lows played out beneath the bright lights of fame.
It was his wife Susan's father, Jack Butterfield, who would eventually guide Dion to the principles that would free him from his addictions, principles embodied in the programme of Alcoholics Anonymous. When the dawn of his long, dark sojourn finally broke, it brought with it an exhilarating sense of release which matched his explosive new creative energies and became palpable in the songs and performances of these extraordinary albums.
With a boldness born of absolute confidence in his persuasive performing prowess, Dion stripped his music to its bare bones, working with producer Phil Gernhard to create a blues-drenched and folk-imbued collection of tracks arranged and performed solely by the artist, accompanying himself on both classical and steel string guitar.
What was immediately evident from the unadorned atmospherics of Sit Down Old Friend was not only Dion's return to the basics of his singing and songwriting craft, but a determination to allow his audience access to both the joys and the sorrows that had shaped his journey. From the adaptation of a central AA aphorism in Let Go, Let God, to the affecting paean to his young daughter in Just A Little Girl, to the sense of homecoming embodied in the title track, Sit Down Old Friend is a moving testament to one man's belief in the healing power of total transparency.
It was from this absolute ground zero of self-imposed simplicity that Dion would begin to reassemble his musical identity. Still working closely with Gernhard and recruiting a pair of promising young songwriters - Tony Fasce and Bill Tuohy - as collaborators, Dion returned to the studio in 1971 to cut You're Not Alone. With ten tracks that widened the perspective of its predecessor, the album simultaneously shifted the emphasis from blues to folk flavourings for an altogether more contemplative result. From the resonant steel drum interlude of Close To It All, Dion's rendering of the Melanie manifesto, to the understated interplay of Paul Griffin's keyboard and Hugh McCracken's guitar, effortlessly interwoven through much of the album, You're Not Alone is an exercise in restraint in the service of serenity. It's a mood that prevails even when the tempo sharpens and the lyrics darken as on such Dion originals as The Stuff I Got and Attraction Works Better Than Promotion - another musical manifestation of a familiar AA truth. Versions of the Lennon/McCartney staples Let It Be and Blackbird, stand as among the best of any Beatles covers, while Windows and Peaceful Place are the aural equivalent of the delicately rendered tints and hues of a watercolour portrait.
From the evidence of Sit Down Old Friend and You're Not Alone, it was clear that Dion had embarked on an utterly new musical direction. From his street corner days in the Bronx, through his dizzying rise to teen stardom and his subsequent struggle against the demons of addiction, Dion had learned a valuable lesson. It's the journey that counts and finding your own way is what makes it all worthwhile.

They help me out now when I sing 'You're Barking Up The Wrong Tree' by doing the 'barking'.- -- This CD collects together all the commercial recordings and surviving demos of a man who has had two brief but entertaining careers in rock 'n' roll. In the 1950s DonWoody was a DJ who wrote some distinctively good songs. He penned Brenda Lee's first hit. Then Decca persuaded him to have a shot at being a rockabilly singer himself. During the 1970s rockabilly revival he was 'rediscovered' and recently he has started performing again. -- The CD booklet by Martin Hawkins tells the fascinating story of DonWoody, with unpublished interviews and rare photographs

Rock'n'Roll * British Rockabilly * Revival & Classic Rock’n’Roll and a coupla Beat Instrumentals
Rock'n'Roll as conjured up by likes of Link Wray, Crazy Cavan and Johnny Kidd, the Double Six have a rebellious attitude that spits in yer face.
Whether it be gambling with classic rock'n'roll on a psychobilly bill with a Screamin' Jay Hawkins cane in hand... or screaching to the converted on a trad. rock'n'roll show or crashing around the stage in front of an audience of young rockabilly hepsters... the Double Six bring life to the party and luckily for us that enthusiasm can't help but carry over atop their record.
The Double Six are Showbiz!
Having built up a sizeable following courtesy of a positive attitude and a busy "do all" schedule that sees them appearing anywhere and indeed everywhere from rock'n'roll shows to psychobilly bills and teddy boy/revival events, the time has indeed come to lay their full 5-piece sound onto record.

By the time the Sir Douglas Quintet tore up the charts in 1965 with She's About A Mover, main mover Doug Sahm -- the late, great Doug Sahm -- had already logged a ten year career on the lively bandstands of San Antonio, Texas. SAN ANTONIO ROCK represents Sahm's first rock n' roll recordings, culled from the vaults of the local Harlem, Warrior and Satin labels, and includes the 1960 local hit Why Why Why. This long awaited pre-Quintet definitive 1957-61 roundup (featuring all of Doug's early 45's and demos, as well as rare sides with Sahm as a sideman) represents an overlooked and vital chapter in the truly illustrious career of one of the key figures in Texas music. Lush packaging features indepth interviews, bio info, photos, session data
