Released by Norton in May of 2017, 52 years after it was recorded, Dion DiMucci’s “Kickin’ Child” is not what you’re expecting from the legendary doowop/pop star. In fact, he might just blow your ears wide open with his Bob Dylan cover of “Its All Over Now Baby Blue.”
Dion serves up some chillingly familiar nods to all the folk greats but with his own smooth, soothing, soulful pipes. You might think you’re listening to The Byrds; but there is no mistaking Dion’s voice.
Why did it take so long? Well, you’ll just have to pick up the album and read the fantastic liner notes.
This is an absolute must own for any Dion fan.
