Dion: Runaround Sue

1. Product Details

This essential LP includes Dion’s classic and magnificent second solo album, "Runaround Sue", originally released on the Laurie label in 1961, after he split with The Belmonts. The long play opens with the great title track, which rose to #1 in the US pop charts. The song was co-written by Dion and Ernie Maresca, and tells the story of a disloyal lover. The album presents two further and familiar smashes: “The Wanderer” and “The Majestic,” plus other highlights ranging from basic hard rock & roll (“Kansas City”) to smooth teen pop. “Lonely World” did not make much noise on the charts, despite having a great beat, a killer hook, and beautiful singing by Dion and his backup vocalists.

In addition to the original masterpiece, this collector’s edition contains 3 bonus tracks recorded during that same period but not included on the LP: “Could Somebody Take My Place Tonight,” the smash hit “Come Go with Me,” and a great cover of Lloyd Price’s “Stagger Lee”.
