Description

"Little" Anthony Gourdine and the Imperials were originally a late Fifties U.S. doo-wop group who had a million-selling hit with their first single "Tears On My Pillow" in 1958. More hits followed, into the Sixties, including "I'm On The Outside Looking In", "Goin' Out Of My Head" and "Hurt So Bad". But, our two chosen sides from 1966: "Better Use Your Head" and "Gonna Fix You Good (Everytime You're Bad)" taken from the album Payin' Our Dues failed to cause a stir at the time. Both earned U.K. releases on United Artists but would have to wait a further ten years before seeing any U.K. chart action, peaking at #42 when reissued back-to-back on U.A.'s Silver Spotlight Series. However, both sides became undergound Northern Soul favourites, first at Manchesters Twisted Wheel when ".Fix You Good" filled the floor and later, in 1975, when "Better Use Your Head" packed the ballroom at the legendary Wigan Casino.
