Joey Dee and the Starliters
On Dancefloor With Joey Dee & the Starliters CD

Everyone in America was doing the Peppermint Twist with Joey Dee and The Starliters during the first weeks of 1962.
It was the hottest record in the country, and The Peppermint Lounge, where the band performed six nights a week in midtown Manhattan, was the epicenter of jet-setting cool, celebrities of all stripes fighting to get through the door to witness Joey and his crew doing their high-energy Twist.
It’s been a long time since Dee’s Roulette Records catalogue has been granted deluxe CD treatment, so this release is a welcome development.
All of the group’s big ones are here - both parts of Peppermint Twist, the movie soundtrack smash Hey Let’s Twist, their remake of The Isley Brothers’ Shout!, and even their rare pre-Roulette rockers on the Little and Scepter labels.
Joey and his Starliters cut two spectacular live albums at the Peppermint in late ’61, and many of their highlights are here too.
