    Biography :

    After recording " Come on Little Angel" with the Belmonts in 1962, Carlo decided on a solo career, and with Laurie records looking for a replacement for Dion (who left the same year to sign with Columbia) the reunion (with Laurie) seemed to be of mutual benefit.


    Laurie even used Carlo's first name only on the label to keep the Dion mystique alive. He recorded three singles backed by another Bronx group, the Tremonts, and one by the Camerons. The highlight of these releases was the pulsating up-tempo harmony gem "Baby Doll," which, like the others, saw little exposure.
