1962's Back at the Peppermint Lounge (Recorded Live) in Miami Beach: Twistin' With Joey Dee and His Starliters (say that title three times fast) is a sequel of sorts to Joey Dee & the Starliters' 1961 release Doin' the Twist at the Peppermint Lounge. In the wake of the Chubby Checker twist craze, Dee had no less than five album titles in a row between 1961 and 1962 featuring a reference to "the Twist" or "Twistin'," though the dance craze is absent from the song titles here. The legendary Henry Glover produces this set, Roulette Records economozing by splashing red, white, blue, and orange lettering on an LP with no photos and the usual, uncredited, tacky (for the day) liner notes. Glover gets an above-bootleg sound (also for this time period) on the rock legend as he has some fun with familiar material ranging from "Kansas City" and "Money" to "C.C. Rider" and Lloyd Price's "Have You Ever Had the Blues?" That other question, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?," retains its double-entendre, "can I believe the magic of your sighs" (aka "size") and is the poppiest of the bluesy material included here. With no credits other than singer and producer, no dates, and no mention if future Young Rascals appear in the grooves, the disc remains an interesting period piece that is mildly entertaining. Now if ex-Joey Dee sideman Jimi Hendrix showed up on this as he does on mastering engineer Little Walter DeVenne's Revere Beach tape of Little Richard, well, the LP would go from artifact to gold.
