Joey Dee & The Starliters: On The Dancefloor With Joey Dee & The Starliters (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 36 page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 min.

  • The house band of the popular Peppermint Lounge in the heart of Manhattan landed an enormously successful hit with Peppermint Twist in early 1962!
  • For Bear Family Records® an occasion to dedicate the first album in the new CD series 'On The Dancefloor With' to the main protagonists: Joey Dee And The Starliters!
  • Compiled by Nico Feuerbach and with liner notes written by Bill Dahl based on a recent interview with Joey Dee.
  • An end-to-end compilation extremely usable by any DeeJay to fill their dance floors, featuring the best songs from one of the most experienced US live bands of the days, whose job day in and day out was to provide the right music for dancing.
  • Great energetic sound!

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 thing. It’s been a long time since Dee’s Roulette Records catalog has been granted deluxe CD treatment, so this disc 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 torrid remake of The Isley Brothers’ Shout!, 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 with organist Carlton Lattimore and drummer Willie Davis tearing it up behind Dee and his front line (including David Brigati); many of their highlights are here too. Whether rocking This Boat or going uptown soul with a Johnny Nash-penned What Kind Of Love Is This, Mr. Dee was a cool guy - and gave a great interview recently, as the accompanying liner notes illustrate. 

A perfect aural complement to Joey’s revealing and highly recommended new autobiography ‘Peppermint Twist Chronicles’!

"Joey Dee & The Starliters"

Joey Dee
Joey Dee (real name: Joseph Di Nicola) was born in Passaic, New Jersey on June 11, 1940, as the youngest of ten children. When a mere youngster of eight, he taught himself to play the harmonica, and began singing in the local Church Choir. When in High School, he mastered the clarinet, an instrument he borrowed from his sister - another musical Di Nicola, who played in the School Band. A few months later, little Joey considered himself ripe enough to take a further step; he organized his own Combo and did well at private parties and School-dances. When the altosaxophonist left the group, young Mr. Dee took over his chair and he's been blowing the alto ever since. Originally, Joey Dee's big goal was to become a history teacher. Every dime he made as a Bandleader went into his studies. But bookings got bigger and better, and since the large Di Nicola family could certainly use the money, Joey decided to make music his profession.

The choice was a wise one: in 1960, Joey Dee & The Starliters (for that was the name he gave his group) were hired by an obscure Manhattan West Side boite, "The Peppermint Lour1ge". And that's were it all began: the career of Joey Dee - his Starliters - and ... The Twist ! October 1961: the "Peppermint Lounge" - audience is becoming more and more excited about a handsome looking kid, singing and shaking and shouting in front of his fierce little Band. The public catches on quickly - takes over the floor and copies Mr. Dee and his men. The Twist is born, and catching on like wildfire, and spreading all over New York, all over the U.S.A., and (later) all over the World. Teenagers in bluejeans and High Society bluebloods, Ivy Leaguers, Junior Leaguers and Little Leaguers and just plain Mr. and Mrs. America - everybody is doing the Twist. And "The Peppermint Lounge" is making more headlines than the Taj Mahal ! Since that explosive beginning, Joey Dee is making himself an astonishing career.

He is cutting records for ROULETTE, he appears on the Ed Sullivan Show, the Dick Clark Show, he stars in the Paramount picture "Hey, Let's Twist" and in the Columbia flicker "Two Tickets To Paris". He is a guest performer in New York's Hotel Plaza, in the "Four Seasons" restaurant and in another Hotel of worldwide fame: The Astor, where New York's major Robert Wagner immediately becomes a fan. A replica "Peppermint Lounge" is built in Miami Beach, and there too, Joey Dee & The Starliters score huge triumphs. He goes to Europe, and becomes a wild smash in the Scandinavian countries and in the "Starclub", Hamburg. Joey Dee is in ! Joey Dee is made !

His hottest records until now, have been "Peppermint Twist" and "Ya Ya" - both originally waxed for his L. P. Album "Damn' The Twist At The Peppermint Lounge" (ROULETTE MGRL 9411). He won a Gold Record for all three as well as a very special European award for his "Ya Ya" etching: Radio Luxem-burg's Lion. On this L.P. you will hear him as a fine, enthusiastic singer, a real Mister Twister, leading his Starliters with plenty of vigor and vitality and blowing an occasional saxophone solo. Moreover, Joey is a swell kid with about the pleasantest smile in the world.

A young smile - for his music is that of youth on the go !

Customer evaluation for "On The Dancefloor With Joey Dee & The Starliters (CD)"
22 Jul 2022

Joey Dee really tearing it up with fierce energy that never seems to let up at all!

Joey Dee may not have been the hardest rocker of his time, but his work at the famous Peppermint Lounge in New York was big hit material early in the 60s – and also some of the first live material to really showcase the talent of a hard rocking combo on record! Dee and The Starliters had some big hits for Roulette at the time – and this set brings together those cuts with even more obscure material for Scepter and Little Records – really showing the raw energy that made the group such a hit at the club – really tearing it up with fierce energy that never seems to let up at all! In other words, this isn't crossover pop of the sort you might expect – but great raw recordings of a well-matched combo really letting loose – driving drums, fast-riffing guitar, and even some organ too – on a total of 29 tracks that include "Lorraine", "Goin Back To My Home Town", "Mother Goose Twist", "Leave My Woman Alone", "Slippin & Slidin", "Crazy Love", "Shout", "What Kind Of Love Is This", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Peppermint Twist", "Roly Poly", "Hello Josephine", "Baby You're Driving Me Crazy", "Wing Ding", and "This Boat".
