DION….”SHU BOP” (THE LOST TRACK)…..SONG OF THE DAY

DION IS ONE OF THE MOST DURABLE OF ALL THE ROCK AND ROLL ARTISTS TO COME ALONG SINCE THE 1950S.  HIS AMAZING VOICE HAS SENT MANY A HIT ON TO THE BILLBOARD POP SINGLES CHARTS SINCE 1958, WITH DION & THE BELMONTS…THAT FIRST HIT IS THE CLASSIC…”I WONDER WHY” A #22 POP HIT AND A TIMELESS DOO-WOP STANDARD.  DION, AS PART OF DION & THE BELMONTS AND AS A SOLO ARTIST HAS CHARTED…33 HITS ON THE BILLBOARD HOT 100 AND 7 HITS ON THE BILLBOARD R&R CHART.

DEJA NU ALBUM BY DION WAS RELEASED IN 2000 ON THE COLLECTABLES LABEL…THE FIRST TRACK ON THAT ALBUM IS…”SHU BOP” (THE LOST TRACK).  THE RECORDING SOUNDS AS IF IT HAD BEEN RECORDED BY DION AND NOT RELEASED FOR YEARS…BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE.  THE POP/DOO-WOP SOUNDING TRACK IS AN INSTANT CLASSIC.  HAD IT BEEN RELEASED DURING HIS HEYDAY IN THE EARLY 60S, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A MILLION-SELLER.  “SHU BOP” (THE LOST TRACK) IS A FAVORITE ON MY RADIO SHOW ON www.oldiesplus.net WHERE IT FITS IN WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL HITS OF THE 50S AND 60S AND THE GREAT DOO-WOP CLASSICS.

CLICK THE TITLE BELOW…LISTEN AS DION SINGS A “TRUE CLASSIC”….”SHU BOP” (THE LOST TRACK)…THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAMER IS STILL CREATING WONDERFUL MUSIC….
