    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.
