Photograph[edit]

As I understand your copyright, I could not scan an album cover for this photo could I? I wish I were wrong, since I could do it. George Slivinsky 03:26, 27 December 2006 (UTC)


Suggested merge[edit]

This article should NOT be merged with Dion Dimucci. They recorded separately from 1960, after which Dion had great success as only a SOLO artist. This is a common mistake. The Belmonts should be recognized for their separate recordings, which are collectable. George Slivinsky 14:02, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

redirects[edit]

I'm having difficulty today because of the redirections from Dion & the Belmonts to The Belmonts. I've created a new article specifically on "Dion and the belmonts" because there should be one. The redirections should now go to my new article but I don't know how. It depends on exact spelling too, including capitals. Redirections should be corrected and capitals corrected after it's all straight. There's also an entry spelled "Dion and The Belmonts". George Slivinsky 16:50, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Actually this article is the main one and all redirects should come here. If the article name should be Dion and The Belmonts then this article should be moved there. But that's a different question. In any case, Dion and the belmonts would appear to be an incorrect spelling of the group name. Vegaswikian 19:59, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Do you know the music history of that era firsthand rather than secondhand from history? Their hits were under "Dion and The Belmonts". As the Belmonts they were a minor occurence. Both names deserve separate articles for the sake of history. All searches for the form Dion & Belmonts should direct to my article (which cannot be found now). Yes spelling should be corrected, but redirects need to be straight before that can work. Then each article can have a reference to the other. It is actually ludicrous to not have an article on Dion and The Belmonts. Help out. George Slivinsky 15:06, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Actually not every group should have their own artcile. It would depend on how notable each group is/was. The current article looks like it could use a good rewrite to make it clear what name was used at what time in the history of these various combinations. Maybe once that is done, it would be clearer if more then one article is needed for the various groups. Also renames are not needed to write articles. Vegaswikian 08:33, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Vegaswikian, I can tell you do not know that era. I grew up in it. "Dion and the Belmonts" is the name of the famous hit group. No need to rename to create? Try it now with all the existing redirects. Regards, George Slivinsky 00:04, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

From WP:RM:

My request from Nov.14/15 was executed all wrong. There are to be separate articles for "The Belmonts" and "Dion and the Belmonts". They are separate entities. I wrote an article on Dion and the Belmonts but now all searches redirect to The Belmonts, and my article cannot be found. All spelled forms of Dion & Belmonts should redirect to my article. Belmonts should be left alone to itself. I won't try to format this request, it would only confuse me and you. When it's done my article should have the correct capitalization. We're playing with music history here. Thanks. George Slivinsky 14:53, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

No survey that I can see, so I'm closing the move request to allow for informal discussion here. Let me know how I can help. Andrewa 16:40, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
