Read "Kickin' Child - The Lost Album 1965" reviewed by Doug Collette

As much of a pleasure it is to hear Dion DiMucci's voice throughout Kickin' Child--and it is a great pleasure indeed even if you never traversed the path from “Runaround Sue" to “Abraham Martin & John"--there's no denying the all too obvious sources of the music.
