THE HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE CLUB CLASSIC NOW AVAILABLE AS A CLUB SOUL 7" TAKEN FROM THE TWISTED WHEEL ALBUM OF REMASTERED HITS FROM THE MANCHESTER VENUE “When I walked down those stairs for the first time, I thought I'd sold my soul to the devil” Pete Roberts Ernie K-Doe, born Ernest Kador Jr, in New Orleans, 1933, will be forever remembered for his Billborad #1 hit single “Mother-in-Law”, which knocked Del Shannon’s “Runaway” off the top spot in May 1961. Our featured side, “A Certain Girl”, remastered here from the original tape for the first time, followed later that year. It has been covered a number of times, most notably by The Yardbirds in 1964 for their debut single. UK Mod group First Gear, featuring Jimmy Page, also had a go in ‘64. “Here Come The Girls” is another Toussaint song taken from K-Doe’s eponymous album recorded for Janus Records a decade late in 1972. UK R&B band, Sugababes, covered the song in 2008 taking it to #3 on the official UK pop charts. K-Doe reinvented himself as an eccentric radio celebrity in the 80s and 90s billing himself as the “Emperor Of The Universe” with the catch phrase “Burn, K-Doe, Burn”! “A Certain Girl” is taken from the new Club Soul vinyl LP release The Twisted Wheel, which is a newly remastered collection of the classic tracks played at the renowned dance club in Manchester between 1963–71.
