Don't let the cheesy cover fool you, this is a fantastic disc! The bulk of the disc (the first ten tracks) comprises Ernie K-Doe's solo "comeback" session from 1970 released on Janus Records in 1971. The sessions were entirely produced by New Orleans' songwriting and producing legend Allen Toussaint, and eight of the ten cuts (all but "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye and "Talkin' `Bout This Woman) were written by Allen as well.

In my opinion, Allen was at a songwriting peak in 1970, having written the bulk of the tracks for Lee Dorsey on his "Yes We Can" LP (which is considered by many to be one of the greatest soul LPs of all time). These K-Doe tracks were written and recorded at the exact same time, and to me, they are equally as good as those found on the Dorsey LP. Stylistically, the music on "Here Come The Girls" is very much in the same vein as the material found on Dorsey's "Yes We Can" Yes We Can/Night People. In fact, "A Place Where We Can Be Free" (released as an outtake from the "Yes We Can" sessions on Polygram's Yes We Can and Then Some CD) is the exact same backing track with K-Doe's vocals substituted for Dorsey's! Why Lee's album met with success but Ernie's comeback was halted in its tracks is beyond me. Perhaps Janus, as a smaller label, didn't have as much money to promote the record. In any case, this deserves to be labeled as one of the great "lost" soul LPs.

Oh, and did I forget to mention that the legendary Meters play on the bulk of the tracks? There is some serious FUNK to be found on this record.

This album is unexpected and entertaining - what a great find! Each track has a whole lot of true feeling. The book I am sure is equally as entertaining.
