The Bitter End folk club on Bleecker Street in New York City’s Greenwich Village was a regular venue for Dion. He played two residencies there before deciding to record a performance. The choice of repertoire is a nice mix of influences and his own songs. ‘Abraham, Martin & John’, Leonard Cohen’s ‘Sisters Of Mercy’ and Lightning Hopkins ‘Drinkin’ That Wine’ had featured on his Laurie album “Dion”. There’s a fantastic take of Sonny Boy Williamson’s ‘Don’t Start Me Talking’, while Chuck Berry’s ‘Too Much Monkey Business’ harks back to his interest in Chicago music. ‘Mama, You’ve Been On My Mind’ and ‘One Too Many Mornings’ demonstrate how important Bob Dylan was to Dion, and Paul McCartney’s ‘Blackbird’ is his nod to the British “infusion”.
