Product Description

Last copies! Unplayed but not shrink wrapped. (Norton 411 CD) DION - KICKIN' CHILD 

The lost 1965 Columbia album arrives- 52 years later! Here it is on compact disc with all of Dion's  blueswailin', folk-blazin', rock n' stormin' monsters, track after track after track. Cut in '65 with producer Tom Wilson on all but three tracks, this album was slated, then shelved, for reasons that come to light in Scott Kempner's illuminating liners. Whoever's got the crown, label it DIMUCCI and express it to Dion, with love. Absolutely ESSENTIAL. Also available on vinyl LP and pick up the 45 RPM vinyl single (non-LP b-side)!

Kickin' Child / Now / My Love / I Can't Help Wonder Where I'm Bound / Wake Up Baby / Time In My Heart For You / Tomorrow Won't Bring the Rain / Baby, I'm in the Mood For You / Two Ton Feather/ Knowing I Won't Go Back There / Farewell / All I Want To Do Is Live My Life / You Move Me Babe / It's All Over Now Baby Blue / So Much Younger  


Also order Norton 45-196 (non-LP flipside)

  2. A must for Dion fans. 4 Star Review

    As I've gotten older, I've begun to question my long-held assumptions about who the greatest white rock and roll singer of the first generation really was. I've always felt Elvis wore the belt, so to speak, but over the last five years I've come to believe that, for versatility, sheer singing ability, and rock and roll EDGE, Dion's more than a match for the King. This great comp of mostly Tom Wilson-produced tracks that have only rarely escaped the vaults just gives more credence to my switch. While there are a few somewhat sappy slower tracks here (given the time, there would have to be), even those are sung, played, and produced well, and sandwiched with the great rockers, which do in fact evoke those early Wilson-produced Dylan sides, they go down easy. The title tune is classic, "Two-Ton Feather" a trip that might easily be confused with a '65 Dylan composition, and the stripped down "Can't Help Wonder Where I'm Bound" the yearning track you just gotta have on a DiMucci record. Neat liner notes by Scott Kempner.

    I've enjoyed this music since it's slow release began in 1965. To have it all in one place, properly released, lovingly remixed is fantastic. This has long been my favorite music. Kudos to Norton Records for finally bringing this music into the light!

  4. This record is great!!! 5 Star Review

    Dion is a personal favorite and this album finally does justice to his mid 1960s Columbia legacy. If you love Dylanesque folk rock, this LP is for you.
