Peppermint Twistin' with Joey Dee and The Starliters

Although the irrepressible Chubby Checker was the undisputed King of the Twist, JOEY DEE & THE STARLITERS (sometimes, Starlighters) ran him a close second, during 1961 and 1962.

A powerful live band, they famously made 'The Peppermint Lounge' in New York City's West 45th Street, into the Twist centre of the world, patronised by A-List celebs, Royalty and even The First Lady!

This compilation presents the very best of Joey & The Starliters from their first release in 1958, for an obscure New York label, Little, through all their big hits to the end of 1962.

Includes their million-sellers 'Peppermint Twist (parts 1&2)', 'Shout (parts 1&2)' and tracks from their million-selling LP 'Doin' The Twist At The Peppermint Lounge' (from which cuts like 'Ya-Ya' and 'Hot Pastrami (With Mashed Potatoes)' would later be spun off as successful 45s), alongside other significant hits like 'Hey Let's Twist', 'Roly-Poly', 'Everytime (I Think About You)', 'What Kind Of Love Is This', 'I Lost My Baby'.
