A Tribute to Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and John F. Kennedy written by Dick Holler. Dion had a rough time in the mid-sixties with drug problems and was without a record deal when his old label from the 1950s offered him Dick Holler’s song of martyrdom. It was a big hit in U.S. (#4) and Dion’s 9th top 10 hit, but Dion’s version passed rather unnoticed in Europe, instead Marvin Gaye’s version reached #9 on the british charts (May, 1970).
