Dion & The Timberlanes

Profile:
Dion DiMucci from the Bronx, New York recorded these sides with The Timberlanes in 1957 on Mohawk Records.
The Timberlanes recorded "Sweet Dreams, Sweetheart" / "Music Box Lullaby"
and "Home Is Where The Heart Is" on Dragon Records.
Irving Spice, an arranger and cocktail lounge pianist was the owner of Mohawk Records.
He paired Dion with The Timberlanes to record "The Chosen Few" / "Out In Colorado" (Mohawk 105) in 1957.
The backing vocals were by a group called "The Timberlanes", whom Dion had never met.
Their voice parts were merged electronically to produce their record.
The recording received much air play in the east in the spring of 1957 and was soon leased to Jubilee Records
for better national distribution. The single failed to chart nationally.
Dion and Irving Spice both decided that Dion should be backed by a rock & roll group
with a doo-wop street-corner sound instead of the smooth sounding Timberlanes.
