This album is an example of one of my favorite music sub-genres - the knock off album. Most (this one included) seem specifically designed to fool the less-well-informed and/or the parents of kids too young to make their own purchases. Most of the items in my collection are Beatles-related, with a smattering of other artists (The Monkees, for example). This is my first Chubby Checker fake, which is pretty funny (or ironic, or meta, or whatever the kids these days say) as the stage name Chubby Checker was itself based off of a more well-known performer (Fats Domino).
OTOH, these songs/recordings are pretty bad - the vocals, especially. Eeee-aaah, indeed.
There are also a few sax solos that indicate that someone forgot to pass the chart to the player, perhaps.
Grand Prix Series Records was Pickwick reissue label, and existed from the early to mid-1960s. Initially, Grand Prix was used to reissue most or all of the albums that had previously been released on the Bravo and International Award labels. You can get a fairly complete discography here: pickwick/grandprix.
For several years in the early '60's Pickwick employed Lou Reed as a staff songwriter for these type of albums. Sadly, this album predates his employment.
