Editorial Reviews

Review

''If you want to hear a great singer, listen to Dion. His voice takes its color from all palettes. He's never lost it, his genius has never deserted him.'' --Bob Dylan

''All hail Dion, the real link between Frank Sinatra and rock 'n' roll. He could've been in either the Rat Pack or the E Street Band if either had been lucky enough to have him.'' --Bruce Springsteen

''So while Dion has learned from the past, he doesn't live in it. At 72, he has written new songs for the play [''The Wanderer--The Life And Music of Dion'', coming soon]. He's even coming out with a new album ''Tank Full Of Blues,'' next month. ''I never felt more relevant,'' he said. ''I feel more relevant now than I did in my '20s....'' --New York Times, 12/9/11

Product Description

2012 album from the legendary Pop/Rock singer, songwriter and musical chameleon. A street poet and singer of extraordinary versatility, range and resonance, Dion defined Rock 'n' Roll for a generation. He is an artist who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. Now Dion has returned to his deepest roots and influences to release his first Blues album with mostly original songs. His critically acclaimed 2007 Blues album Bronx In Blue was nominated for a Grammy. It is this latest album, however, that Dion considers the crown of his career. Tank Full Of Blues showcases his inexhaustible creativity and sheer exuberance, qualities that have made his music and his legend endure. Dion's never stopped making music, because people have never stopped listening. The man rocks, and he rocks on... with a tank full of blues in his heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hometown Hero Continues To Amaze January 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The great Dion DiMucci (and make no mistake, he truly is one of the rock and roll greats) is a "to the point" kind of guy, and thus it will be with this review.
After 50+ years of making some of the best and most heartfelt music any artist of R&R's early days has created, TFOB is the man's crowning achievement! Apparently, Dion himself feels so also, and for a guy who has quietly and successfully crafted nearly every American music genre comfortably into his catalog,who are we to argue with him !
"Tank full" plays like an unpolished, yet sparkling gem from opening note to the close of the very personal "Bronx Poem". You'll hear a shout out to Robert Plant, a stunning homage to Robert Johnson, and a testament to Dion's appreciation of God.
Sure, the last might not be for everyone, but like Dion the man, it's REAL.Along the way you'll hear some of the most naturally sung and well played blues and blues rock ever recorded (and penned or co- written) by a veteran performer.And you'll play it over and over again, because it's that kind of a record!
Dion is secure enough to both headline a "Malt Shop Memories" cruise for his older (perhaps more set in their musical taste) fans, while still following his own musical passion and destiny. He gives his all TO all. Should the Bronx Bombers ever decide to add a musician to Monument Park, I nominate Dion DiMucci to be the one!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL THE YEARS -- THANK GOD HE'S STILL DOING IT. January 25, 2012
By Jimbo
Format:Audio CD
I'm listening to "Bronx Poem" as I write this.
Everybody has a past. I grew up in a rural area. My teen years were spent singing every song Dion released. When we slept out in "the hut" -- a plywood shack we built in some woods next to Lou Ferrara's house -- I used to be the musical entertainment when we were sitting around BS'ing about nothing and everything. "Teenager in Love," "Lonely Teenager," "Runaround Sue," "The Wanderer," "Little Diane," "Lovers Who Wander," "Love Came To Me," "Sandy" -- now, there's a song nobody remembers anymore. I loved it. -- "This Little Girl," "Donna The Prima Donna," "Drip Drop" -- even "The Road I'm On (Gloria)," which was superb songwriting. Those were fun years.
Dion was the sustaining musical influence of my childhood, and his presence over the airwaves and on the stereo made everything better. After I joined the Marines I lost touch with his music until one day, when we were both back from 'Nam, Lou turned me on to "Abraham, Martin, and John."
And I kept listening. Through the folk period, and liked it. Through the 70s rock period, and liked it. Through the Gospel period, and liked it. Through the 90s rock and compilation period, and liked it. And now, in the 2000s -- and working on 64 -- am appreciative beyond words that I am able to revisit the vibes of my childhood through the grace of God and the talent of this man.
See, when Dion switched from Laurie Records to Columbia in the early 60s, he started doing different stuff. Willie Dixon's "I'm Your Hoochie Cooche Man" and "Chicago Blues," as well as a cover of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode." It was Dion's version that I used to sing at the hut.

At 72 Dion is the only artist from the 50's who is making "new" music that is not just for the sake of nostalgia. I remember going to a Dion concert about 10 years ago with someone who said she had never mentally connected the Dion that sang "Where or When" or "I Wonder Why" with the singer that did "The Wanderer" and especially never connected the same guy to the voice that crafted "Abraham, Martin and John". Since I have followed Dion through his entire career, I have been greatly pleased by all of these chameleon like changes. Unlike other artists who explore new styles out of boredom or in search of a new audience, Dion totally embraces and shines when approaching something different. This CD takes Dion down another road, one that he has always been searching for but never fully explored as much as on these new songs. If you have the Dion retrospective from the 60's "Road I'm On" you already know that Dion had recorded a large amount of pure blues back in the 60's when it was not the fashionable thing to do. In a very real sense, his insistence on recording traditional old school blues at that time (in the middle of the British Invasion) may have sunk his then struggling career. After briefly reuniting with the Belmonts, Dion decided that he didn't want to go back to that style and moved on. While the many recording projects Dion has released since the 70's have met with mixed criticism, no one can deny that he infused each project with honesty and emotion. He never "phoned it in". Above all it was that voice. That wonderful, unmistakable voice that still rings as strong and true today as it did in 1958.

This CD written, sung and played by Dion is the ultimate summation of a gifted musician and singer who doesn't just sing the blues, but understands what makes it tick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and Blue and mezmerizing too January 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a pro drummer since 1966. I love the Blues and I've always dug an uncomplicated ensemble of cats laying it down. This whole CD is pumped out by a three piece band with Dion doing his guitar works, a pocket drummer, and a groove plastering bassist. There is a minimal of overdubs, but only a percussion thing, or so. This is not at all a 50-ish thing. It is the kind of Blues that is Blues. If you don't like Dion's voice doing Blues, then you've never heard his heart beat. It has 1,4,5s to butter your toast with; and, my favorite--Blues shuffles. I hope Dion does a follow up. He made my name cool in 1958, and he is still cool to me. Yo!
