• Emile FORD & The CHECKMATES - What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?

Topping the UK charts with his very first 45, 'What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For' which became one of the first records to sell a million copies in the UK alone, before going on to become a major international hit, was Emile Ford, Britain's first major black pop/R&R star.

His highly regarded backing group, The Checkmates - who included his brothers George and Dave - were the first multi-racial beat combo in the UK and together they charted numerous times, notably with: 'On a Slow Boat To China'; 'Red Sails In The Sunset'; 'You'll Never Know What You're Missin''; 'Them There Eyes'; 'Counting Teardrops'; 'What Am I Gonna Do'; 'Half Of My Heart' and 'I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now'.

With a dozen singles, two LPs, two EPs, and a handful of collectors rarities and all of his UK hits this is another must have from Jasmine!
