Ernie K Doe Here Come The Girls 2CD
For many years the Ernie K. Doe was best known for the smash hit single 'Mother In Law', one of the biggest (if not the biggest) R&B singles ever to emerge from New Orleans.  In recent years however, the use of 'Here Come The Girls' in a series of UK TV adverts (and the Sugababes subsequent cover of the track) has reintroduced K. Doe to a mainstream audience.
 
Both tracks were written and produced by the legendary producer Allen Toussaint, who K. Doe started working with in 1959 when he signed with the Minit label. He continued to work with Toussaint for many years (on the Minit, Instant and Janus labels) and the best of these recordings, along with other classic recordings are featured on this 2CD set, which is packaged in a deluxe digi-book.
 
In addition to 'Mother In Law' and 'Here Come The Girls', the set also features the classics 'Te Ta Te Ta Ta', 'A Certain Girl', 'I Cried My Last Tear' and 'Hotcha Mama'. The set also includes unissued tracks and the sought after self-titled 1970 album which 'Here Comes The Girls' was lifted from.
