Dion Continues To Wander


I went to see Dion perform at the Metro Club in London on Thursday. His career has been given a boost by Richard Gottehrer, founder of The Orchard, who suggested to him he record an album of his favourite songs, featuring only himself and his guitar. The resulting album, Bronx In Blue, was critically acclaimed and bought him back in to the public eye, resulting in him being invited to perform on Later With Jools Holland last Tuesday. Despite the fact he only had a couple of hits in the early 60’s (Runaround Sue and The Wanderer) it was surprising how widely his audience varied. As a measure of his new status we spotted Bobby Gillespie, Dave Gilmour and Robert Plant in the small crowd. It should serve as a reminder how digital distribution has made albums like this possible since the cost of reaching fans – new and old – is now so low.
