- "...'59s PRESENTING [is] a cute slab of white doo-wop. 2 years later RUNAROUND SUE showed he could rock a little too and also featured 'The Wanderer', How innocent it all seems."
2 LPs on 1 CD: PRESENTING DION & THE BELMONTS (1959)/RUNAROUND SUE (1961).
Unknown Contributor Roles: Carlo Mastrangelo; Dion; Dion DiMucci; Angelo d'Aleo.
Ace's two-fer Presenting Dion & the Belmonts/Runaround Sue features two of Dion & the Belmonts' albums from the early '60s. In addition to familiar hits, there are some great covers and album cuts that are worth investigation by hardcore fans, even if it isn't as good as Ace's other two-fer, Lovers Who Wander/So Why Didn't You Do That the First Time?. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
