    Biography :

    Dion remembered Bruce Bruno as "The Elvis of the neighborhood" and might have helped him get on roulette records (and dion's father is credited with co-writing "Dear Joanne")

    Bruce Bruno recorded Dear Joanne with a legendary Black vocal Group, the Cadillacs. Later he was approached by fellow Roulette act Ronnie Hawkins to sing ballads in Hawkins's Rockabilly act.


    Incidentally, the few who bought "Dear Joanne" as a 45 rpm single also bought the original version of "Venus in Blue Jeans" on the B side.
