Emile Ford & The Checkmates

The Roots Of British Rock. Remember it? A various artists collection representing pre-Beatles UK rock / pop. We’re not done with it yet. That’s where my one and only track by West Indies born UK artist Emile Ford comes from. Besides this he had about a half dozen hits, all in 1959 – 1960.

The group is not to be confused with Sonny Charles & Checkmates Ltd.

Emile Ford & The Checkmates:

What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For – Don’t send mixed messages, says our hero. I agree. This song was a number 1 hit in the UK in December of 1959.
