Album: single release only (1958)

Songfacts®:

  • Not to be confused with the 1952 song of the same name, this "Conquest" is an instrumental, and its significance is that it is the first appearance on record of Ronnie James Dio. Although he was best known as a vocalist, early on in his career he played trumpet and bass. Credited to Pantas-Padovana (i.e. Nick Pantas and Dio under his real name, Ronald Padovana), it was released by Ronnie And The Red Caps on the Reb label in 1958 backed by "Lover." It is believed to have had a pressing of around 500 copies. >>
