  • On this date in 1961, PEPPERMINT TWIST by JOEY DEE & THE STARLITERS debuted at No. 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart (Nov 20, 1961)

    “The Godfather of The Twist,” Joey Dee, took the world by storm in 1962 when he and his band, The Starliters, released their #1 hit, “Peppermint Twist.” Since then, Dee has sold millions of records, in addition to appearing on television, in movies, and in live concerts all over the world.

    Another claim to fame for The Starliters is that at one point both JIMI HENDRIX and JOE PESCI were members of the band!

    Pesci and Hendrix were just passing through in the overall scheme of things. Nevertheless, they were part of something big.

    Hendrix kept playing the guitar and when things went electric he turned into a phenomenon of his own. “I had him come out to my garage and audition. After the first five minutes I knew he was the guy for my band,” said Dee. “He was a wonderful team player, a fine guitarist, similar to Curtis Mayfield… I have nothing but good thoughts about Jimi.”

    Pesci moved into acting, something he’d been urged to do by his father Angelo. In interviews, he has mentioned it not being his choice. Having trod the boards since childhood, his interest ran out in the mid-Seventies after he failed to crack Hollywood.
    But The Starliters certainly weren’t the be and end all of Pesci’s journey as a recording artist.

    The former lounge singer has always had music in his blood — to date he’s released two albums, 1968’s Little Joe Sure Can Sing! and Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just for You in 1998, named after his character from My Cousin Vinny (1992).

  • On this date in 1979, English singer-songwriter CHARLIE DORE released the single PILOT OF THE AIRWAVES in the UK (Nov 20, 1979).

    Taken from her album Where to Now, this ode to an unnamed DJ was a monster hit for London born singer-songwriter Charlie Dore reaching #13 on the US Billboard chart; unsurprisingly it also received heavy airplay in the UK, although it didn't do nearly as well.

    "Pilot Of The Airwaves" runs to 3 minutes 53 seconds, but a radio edit minus the extended guitar solo and running to 3 minutes 15 seconds was also pressed.
    The song was produced for Island Records by Alan Tarney and former Shadows guitarist Bruce Welch.

    "Pilot Of The Airwaves" was the last song to be played on Radio Caroline when it closed forever on Bonfire Night, 1990.

    Music started as a side project for Charlie Dore while she was in school for drama. She quickly formed her own band, Charlie Dore's Back Pocket, playing locally in pubs and clubs in the London circuit. It was in London that the band was spotted by Chris Blackwell and signed to Island Records.

    The single "Pilot of the Airwaves," off her debut album, Where to Now, reached number 11 in the United States. Though the album was recorded stateside in Nashville, it resulted in her being voted Best New Female Singer by Record World Magazine.
    Her second album, Listen, was supported by tours in Australia and Japan, where she represented Great Britain in the Tokyo Song Festival. Taking a break from song, Dore returned to acting after her second album. She appeared in many English productions, including The Ploughman's Lunch with Tim Curry and Frank Finlay. She also acted in a long list of television shows, movies, and on stage in Repertory at Newcastle.
    In 1995, Dore released her third album, Things Change, on Grapevine with a range of collaborators and musicians lending their talents. An Italian production team, Souled Out heard her track "Time Goes By" and remixed it into a dance track that went big in European dance markets. With the success of the single, Dore found herself doing vocals on more electronic music-based songs. She has appeared on tracks for Slacker and collaborations with Simon Rodgers.

    Over the next decade she continued to produce hits for artists including the German pop idols No Angels, Lisa Stansfield, Hayley Westenra, Status Quo and a second track for Celine Dion, "Rain, Tax (It's Inevitable)", co-written with another long-standing collaborator, Terry Britten, which appeared on Dion's A New Day Has Come.
    Between 2001 and 2003, Dore and Littman provided the score for two series of BBC drama, Two Thousand Acres of Sky, and also a film, Roman Road (Zenith 2004). During this time she also collaborated with Simon Rogers, one half of underground dance group Slacker, to produce Space Country, a collection of ambient country music.
    In 2005, Dore released Sleep All Day and Other Stories, a return to her acoustic country-folk roots, followed by Cuckoo Hill in 2006. Both albums won her excellent reviews,[by whom?] as well as the International Acoustic Music Awards Grand Prize for the song, "Looking for My Own Lone Ranger". "File under treasure", wrote Charlie Gillett in The Observer's Music Magazine.

    In 2008, Dore won Overall Grand Prize as well as Best Folk Award at the 4th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards.

    The following year saw the release of The Hula Valley Songbook, a collection of American hillbilly, western swing and popular favourites of the 1930s, based around the set list performed by her first band and originally recorded by artists such as Jimmie Rodgers, Al Bowlly and Milton Brown. Dore toured the UK with her band, Littman, Dudley Phillips, Steve Simpson and Jake Walker, collectively known as the Hula Valley Orchestra, also opening for Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for several of his summer concerts.

    In October 2009, Dore's cover of "Here Comes the Sun", a Hawaiian reggae version produced with Littman, was included in Mojo magazine's tribute album, Abbey Road Revisited. It was the biggest selling edition of the magazine to date.

    In April 2011, Dore released Cheapskate Lullabyes, which included an unplugged rendition of "I'm Cleaning Out My House" from her previous album, The Hula Valley Songbook. It was released on CD and digitally through iTunes.
