Dion - Purple Haze



Here is an odd little peice.

Dion of Dion and the Belmonts fame doing a little breezy psychedelic version of Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze.

After the break up of the Belmonts in 1968 and Dion moving to Florida to kick his herion addiction he recorded the "Abraham, Martin, and John," a #4 hit ballad tribute to Lincoln, King, and Kennedy. The follow-up, a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" was a flop.

How could I NOT check this out...

I've been digging Rick Nelson's cover of I've Got A Woman" lately. The bass playing is obscene!
