 For many UK fans Dion is one of the best kept secrets in the blues – such albums as ‘Bronx in Blue’, ‘Son of Skip James’ SPV42322 CD are minor classics, and for fans of doo wop his modern day doo wop album ‘Déjà vu’ available from www.goldenoldies.com ref COL-CD-2794 is an essential (it’s brilliant!). Dion remains a vital, creative force in modern day music bringing old time values to create a constantly fresh stream of music. Of the song ‘I Read It (In the Rolling Stone),’ he says “Well, this song is my tribute to Rolling Stone magazine for its commitment to good writing about good music – for a good long time,” He continues -“Some of us are still readers in this world, believe it or not, and we’re grateful for good material. This is how a songwriter says thanks. It also includes a nod to my friend Robert Plant. Go ahead Listen up!”
