The Cookhouse Five is a collection of studio recordings by 94 East, the band name given to a number of tracks recorded by Pepé Willie and Prince with occasional other musicians.

The collection didn't contain any previously-unreleased tracks, although it places together, for the first time, all tracks recorded during the December 1975, sessions at Cookhouse Studios, Minneapolis, MN, USA, without any additional tracks. The tracks have all been remixed by former Revolution keyboardist Matt "Dr." Fink, however, marking their first release in this form.

The album is labeled as a 35th anniversary release, and the artwork for the collection contains a 2010 copyright, but the album was only released in April 2011. It seems likely that a CD was prepared in 2010, but a digital release was agreed upon instead. A limited run of CDRs was made available later in 2011, with alternate artwork.

The artwork (available at www.pepemusic.com), and the associated website, make mention of the songs being accepted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Library and Archives.

No singles were released from the album, although ten mobile phone ringtones from the track Games were made available at the time of the album's release. The album was released without much promotion, however, and did not chart.

We'd like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and believed not only in our music, but in the significance of our early work with Prince and in the shaping of the Minneapolis Sound.
    Thanks to Little Anthony and the Imperials, founded by Pepé Willie's uncle, Clarence Collins, for their motivation and inspiration; the original members of 94 East - Wendell Thomas, Pierre Lewis, Dale Alexander - for helping shape the original sound and feel of the Cookhouse Five songs; Teddy Randazzo for his amazing contributions to our music; our parents: Agnes Leake, "Momma" Marcy Ingvoldstad, and LeRoy Lazenberry - for their unconditional support and love; a special thanks to Terry Stewart and Rick French of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Bill Arnovich of Adele Media Relations for his hard work; and finally, a special thanks to Prince."
