Dion is an American singer-songwriter, best known for his string of hits in the early 60s.
You're Not Alone was Dion DiMucci's second album for the Warner Bros label, released in 1971. Coming after the stripped-down, solo acoustic performances of Sit Down Old Friend, it was notable for featuring full band arrangements again, but still with an intimate acoustic focus. The subtle, unobtrusive arrangements (with Paul Griffin on keyboards and Hugh McCracken on guitar) and stellar production qualities made for a wonderfully warm and soulful sound, and showed how well Dion had settled into this mature, introspective new format. It was mostly made up of originals, though it also featured covers of Melanie Safka's "Close To It All" as well as two splendid Beatles covers ("Let It Be" and "Blackbird").
Ultimately it generated pretty much nothing in the way of commercial success, but surely stands out as one of the very best albums from this fruitful phase of his recording career.
