    Little Joe Cook
    Peanuts and Other Delicacies CD

    Little Joe Cook fronted doo-wop vocal group the Thrillers, winning a contract with OKeh Records in 1956.
    Their first single Do the Slop was a regional hit in Philadelphia and New York City, introducing a new dance craze, and leading the group to perform at the Apollo Theater.
    The group's second single Peanuts was written by Cook and again featured his falsetto as the lead.
    Released in 1957, it gained the group an appearance on American Bandstand, and rose to No. 22 on the national chart.
    They were the epitome of the one hit wonder, and when listening to the superb music on offer here you will wonder how someone so talented could only manage one hit.
    What a hit it was though!
    There haven't been many anthologies of Joe's career in the CD era, and this 29 track collection certainly the most comprehensive to date.
