Dion & The Belmonts - 1957-67 - Greatest Hits


Dion & the Belmonts was a leading American  vocal group of the late 1950s. The group formed when Dion DiMucci, lead singer, joined The Belmonts: Carlo Mastrangelo, baritone, Freddie Milano, second tenor,  and Angelo D'Aleo, first tenor, in late 1957. After an unsuccessful first single, the group was signed to Laurie Records. Their breakthrough came when "I Wonder Why" reached No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and the group appeared for the first time on American Bandstand. They followed it with the ballads "No One Knows" (No. 19) and "Don’t Pity Me" (No. 40). This success won Dion and the Belmonts their first major tour in late 1958, with The Coasters, Buddy Holly and Bobby Darin, and this was followed up by the "Winter Dance Party" tour with Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. On 2 February 1959, after playing at the Surf Ballroom, Dion decided that he could not afford the $36 cost of a flight to the next venue. The plane crashed; Holly, Valens, The Big Bopper, and the pilot were killed on 3 February 1959, shortly after midnight. However, the tour continued, with Jimmy Clanton and Bobby Vee being added to the bill as replacements. In October 1960, Dion decided to quit for a solo career. The Belmonts also continued to release records, but with less success.
