Emile Ford & The Checkmates
What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For? 2CD

Emile Ford topping the UK charts with his very first 45, What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For.
This became one of the first records to sell a million copies in the UK alone, before going on to become a major international hit.
This classic record made Emile Ford Britain's first major black Rock 'n' Roll star.
His highly regarded backing group, The Checkmates - which included his brothers George and Dave - were the first successful multi-racial group in the UK and together they charted numerous times.
Their hit records included On a Slow Boat To China, Red Sails In The Sunset, You'll Never Know What You're Missin', Them There Eyes, Counting Teardrops, What Am I Gonna Do?, Half Of My Heart and I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now.
This fantastic 58 track double-disc set gathers together a dozen singles, two LPs, two EPs, and a handful of collectors rarities - with all of his UK hits included.
