Oh yeah, Dion and the Belmonts - "The Wanderer" and "Run Around Sue" - songs about sex that were that obvious were rarely played back then - even when I was a kid, I got the message from those two.

Ever hear his orchestral version of Purple Haze?

The mind still reels.

Get out! Really? I must've missed that one - the search goes on.

That version is on the CD that this image comes from. I must admit it takes some getting used to not least because it is so different from the Hendrix version.

It's all flutes and strings, not an electric guitar to be found.

Don't get me wrong, it's interesting, but still...

Dion lives near me. The man is still cool.
