Description

Offered for sale is a copy of the 1968 self-titled LP Dion by Dion, featuring the single, “Abraham, Martin and John.”

About this copy: This copy of Dion is a 1968 U.S. stereo pressing on the Laurie label.

The cover is M- with trace wear on the two right-hand corners.  The cover is still has most of the original shrink wrap.

The disc is M- on side one and VG++ and close to M- on side two.  Side two has a small mark at the beginning of the first track that does not affect play.

A nice copy of a a terrific (and in our opinion, underrated) LP.

Background: Dion was viewed as Dion’s “comeback” album and it included the #4 hit “Abraham, Martin and John,” along with an interesting cover of Jimi Hendrix’ “Purple Haze.”

While the single sold well, the LP did not, peaking at #128 on the U.S. album charts.

Allmusic.com gave Dion a 3 1/2 star review:

Featuring his Top Five comeback single “Abraham, Martin and John,” this folk-rock and blues-flavored effort remains Dion’s most fully realized album. In addition to the impressive anti-war original “He Looks a Lot Like Me,” it contains mature interpretations, arranged both acoustically and with strings, of songs by Fred Neil, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Lightnin’ Hopkins.

You can listen to “Purple Haze” here:
