Dion enjoyed considerable success fronting The Belmonts, registering nine major hits in a little over two years before striking out on his own in 1961. As a soloist his successes were even greater, culminating in the chart topping Runaround Sue and The Wanderer, that peaked just one place lower. These singles may have singled him out as something of a rock and roll star (as well as a teen idol), but as his later recordings proved, Dion was a dangerous artist to try and pigeon hole. The album Lovers Who Wander is a perfect example; as well as his interpretations of the likes of Shout and Stagger Lee, there are five of his own compositions, something of a new avenue for Dion to explore. The album was extremely well received upon initial release, hitting #12 on the US album chart and giving rise to three hit singles, with the title track a #3 success.

Dion does a good job on the other five album cuts,
four of which happen to be covers of some big hits.
"The twist" originally by, Chubby Checker -- 1960.
"Stagger Lee" originally by, Lloyd Price -- 1959.
"Shout" originally by, Isley Brothers -- 1959 and Joey Dee -- 1962.

The copy I purchased was new, still sealed & still had an original orange sticker
on the outside of the wrapper that stated --
"Official Re-issue of the Original L.P.!, includes the hits:
"Lovers who wander" -- "(I was) born to cry" and "Little Diane".
PLUS BOTH ORIGINAL AND NEW LINER NOTES.
This c.d. was manfactured in 1993 by "The right stuff",
a division of Capitol Records.
It sounds great, and is just what I was looking for,
my all time favorite Dion L.P., conveniently on c.d.!
