Dion and the Belmonts were a popular doo-wop group in the 60s, but I have never heard of them. Phil Spector thought he could make Dion a popular solo artist. He was wrong. Until the 90s when Dion‘s Born to be With You was reevaluated. It is an earlier type of Orchestral rock and baroque pop.
I think this is an interesting album and artist. He did not like this album because it was depressing. I think I like that part of it. I doubt I would listen to it again, but it it okay to hear it in context of musical history. The first song was okay. 6/10.
