Record #0322: Lovers Who Wonder / (I Was) Born To Cry – DION

Laurie 3123 (original) USA, Apr. 1962
Words & Music by:  Side A – Dion DiMucci, Ernie Maresca; Side B – Dion DiMucci
Musicians: Dion DiMucci (lead vocals), The Del-Satins (backing vocals) and an orchestra conducted by Glen Stuart
Recording sessions: Produced by Donna Joan Productions in New York, NY, 1962
Highest chart positions:  Side A – US #3, US R&B #16; Side B – US #42

The title song is a fine one. It could be even better if it wasn’t preceded by “Runaround Sue” and “The Wanderer”. It is very obvious that DiMucci & Maresca have opened the same recipe book when writing “Lovers Who Wonder”. But hey, that’s music business.

List price:  Very Good+ is $10, Near Mint is $20
