DION USA DISCOGRAPHY

compiled by Doug Schenker.


The Albums discography and the Singles discography each consists of US releases,except where a recording has only been released outside the US.The Reissues and Compilations section includes some key UK releases. Where an album is released that is just a reshuffling of Dion songs [Dion Sings to Sandy LP (Laurie 1963), Dion Sings the 15 Million Sellers LP (Laurie 1963), More of Dion's Greatest Hits LP (Laurie 1963), Dion and Introducing The Glen Stuart Chorus (Abel 1964), etc.] with no new Dion material, it won't be listed. If a song is released for the first time on a CD it will be listed in this discography, even if it was previously on an LP [* = Dion & The Belmonts]

    Special thanks to Ray Verno for going above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks also to Mike Callahan ,Tony Picirrillo, Stephanie Jacobs, Bob Reynolds & Steve Islip for looking at their Dion collections and answering a lot of questions and providing great information, mostly about obscure singles and release dates. Also thanks to Gordon Watson of Yo Frankie Magazine for his international Dion discography which has Dion singles I didn't know existed. Also thanks to anyone I might have forgotten. This definitely involved teamwork.
