Product Description:

The simple fact is that Joey Dee & the Starliters were a two-hit wonder group. 1962's "Peppermint Twist, Pt. 1" hit number one in 1962, and "Shout, Pt. 1" hit number six that same year. Collectables' ten-song Joey Dee & the Starliters' collection from 2005, Peppermint Twist omits "Shout, Pt. 1." Not a smooth move really, especially considering that this is the only single-disc Dee collection available as of 2005. Instead of "Shout, Pt. 1" you get some good stuff -- the crazed B-side of "Peppermint Twist" ("Peppermint Twist, Pt. 2"), some raw and loose covers of R&B hits ("Ya Ya," "C.C. Rider," "Kansas City"), another "Twist" tune, and a nice ballad ("I Lost My Baby") that shows the sensitive side of the wild nightclub rockers. Add "Shout" and you have a decent disc, without it you might as well try to track down Rhino's much more comprehensive "best of" from 1990 titled Hey Let's Twist!: The Best of Joey Dee and the Starliters. ~ Tim Sendra

Rating 5.0 Great Stuff! Music Lover: from Huntsville, TX US -- August, 5, 2005

If you like early 60s rock n' roll and garage band music, you've got to have this. This budget priced disc, I think, is a better buy than a much larger collection of Joey Dee material available that offers some fluff and a much bigger price. "The Peppermint Twist" and "Hot Pastrami with Mashed Potatoes" are great. The more pop sounding "What Kind of Love is This," is terrific. For the money, you can't go wrong on this one.
