We never heard much of Dion after 'Abraham, Martin And John' in 1968.

And that was a comeback record for him after 5 years.

He still gets lots of airplay on Oldies radio. I have a '20 Greatest Hits' of Dion /The Belmonts but unfortunately it's not on there. (I just checked).

.................................................

We'll start the voting for Top 40 #5 in about 14 hours.

Any feedback in the meantime will be much appreciated.
