During the mid 1960s there were several groups across America that worked under the name "The Kingsmen" -- including a moderately well-known gospel group.
There were also at least three 45 rpm "rock" records released under the name "The Kingsmen" that were NOT the "Louie, Louie" Kingsmen..
During interviews Kingsmen members have mentioned that this particular disc on the Earth label was released out of New York City during the band's heyday with the definite intention of fooling the record-buying public into thinking it was by the Portland group. As a result, the record is documented here.
