Dion McGregor

Dion McGregor has written lyrics for songs made famous by the likes of Blossom Dearie, Joel Grey, and Barbra Streisand. His greater renown has come from being perhaps the most impressive sleeptalker in history—a legacy that owes much to his roommate and songwriting partner Michael Barr who recorded hundreds of Dion’s somnolent transmissions. The first album of these strange somniloquies—The Dream World of Dion McGregor—was released in 1964 by Decca Records. Thanks to Phil Milstein and Tzadik Records, a sequel followed in 1999 (Dion McGregor Dreams Again). After acquiring the archive of original dream tapes, Torpor Vigil released The Further Somniloquies of Dion McGregor in 2004. The latest instalment is Dreaming Like Mad with Dion McGregor, released in July of 2014. Dion McGregor stopped sleeptalking, at least so loquaciously, long before his death in 1994.
