In 1968, Dion had a major career resurgence with his massive hit Abraham, Martin and John. The song sent him on a journey into more introspective music, placing him among some of the best singer-songwriters of the day.
On April 7, Omnivore Recordings will chronicle one of the highlights of those years with Live at the Bitter End, August 1971. The new set not only highlights some of Dion’s greatest hits from his first decade in music, but also shows the new side with a number of his own compositions along with covers of songs by Leonard Cohen (Sisters of Mercy), the Beatles (Blackbird) and Bob Dylan (One Too Many Mornings).
Included in the package is a booklet with rare photos, memorabilia and an in-depth interview with the singer.
