This two-disc set, which collects all of the singles, both A and B sides, that Dion released as a solo artist during his two stays at Laurie Records, does a good job of showing Dion's own restless instincts as a singer and musician, instincts that have served him well during his five-decade career, and his supplementary willingness to listen to his record label's wishes at the same time, a balancing act that gave Dion three distinct commercial phases on the pop charts from the late '50s through the end of the 1960s. He began as the lead voice for the Bronx Italian street corner doo wop group the Belmonts, producing hits for Laurie Records like "I Wonder Why" (none of Dion's Belmonts-era singles are included here) before going solo in 1960, the point where this collection picks up the story. His solo work for Laurie cast him as a teen idol, and he scored hits with the likes of "Lonely Teenager," "Runaround Sue," "The Wanderer," and "Little Diane" before leaving the label to sign with Columbia Records late in 1962. His hits with Columbia ("Ruby Baby" and "Donna the Prima Donna") continued in the teen idol vein, but by the time Dion returned to Laurie Records for a second go-round in 1968, his sound and style had changed into a kind of pop-oriented folk-rock, which gave him a Top Five hit that same year with "Abraham, Martin and John," and led to interesting near-misses with his covers of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now," Fred Neil's "The Dolphins," and a barely recognizable version of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze." Amazingly, the two distinct phases of his time with Laurie Records as a solo artist have never been released side by side like this before, so this set from Real Gone Music fills a huge hole. Everything is in mono, the way the singles were mixed and originally appeared. If there is even one small complaint about this collection, it would have to be that room couldn't be found for Dion's singles with the Belmonts.

Led Zeppelin: 50 Years of Rock

In 2018, Led Zeppelin celebrated their 50th birthday, but the only "present" on offer is a beautiful book which will come out on sale in Autumn. After having made their mark on the history of rock in just 12 years, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have often reunited on stage and in the studio after the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, with varying degrees of success. Let's take a look back at Led Zep's different comebacks, which we hope might throw up some nice ideas for a really good birthday concert...

Diabolus in Musica: 50 Years of Black Sabbath

In the autumn of 1969, four young lads from Birmingham crammed themselves into a studio in London for what looked like their last chance at making a career in music. They had 24 hours to record and to change their lives forever. They left the studio with “Black Sabbath” an eponymous debut album from the band led by Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tommy Iommi that would turn a whole generation onto heavy metal. Let's look back on this sonic revolution.

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.
