Hank Ballard & The Midnighters: Hank Ballard - Rocks (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) avec livret de 36 pages, 30 titres. Durée totale de lectur: environ 79 min.

  • C'est Hank Ballard qui, à la fin des années 50, a créé avec son groupe The Twist le plus grand thème de danse jamais inventé.
  • Bear Family Records® consacre aujourd'hui un album CD à Hank Ballard & The Midnighters dans le cadre de sa série 'ROCKS' de longue durée.
  • Avec des numéros comme Work With Me Annie ou Annie Had A Baby, Ballard avait déjà conquis les hit-parades américains au milieu des années 50.
  • Le producteur Nico Feuerbach et l'auteur Bill Dahl ont réuni les numéros R&B les plus réussis et les plus rock ainsi que les succès twists écrasants des catalogues King/Federal pour en faire un projet extrêmement dansant.
  • Un livret complet, richement illustré, avec des notes de liners bien informées de Bill Dahl et des enregistrements soigneusement remastérisés provenant des archives de Gusto Records.  

Au début de leur longue carrière chez King/Federal Records à Cincinnati, Hank Ballard et ses Midnighters se sont spécialisés dans des morceaux osés à double sens - Work With Me Annie, son inévitable suite Annie Had A Baby, Sexy Ways - qui ont repoussé les limites de la bienséance et ont grimpé comme des fusées dans les hit-parades R&B du milieu des années 1950. À l'approche de la fin de cette décennie tumultueuse, Hank et son équipe paillarde de Detroit ont inventé le plus grand thème de danse de tous, le Twist, et se sont ensuite lancés dans une série d'exercices supplémentaires. L

Les deux phases du vaste héritage discographique du groupe sont représentées en abondance sur ‘Hank Ballard and The Midnighters Rock’, dont les points forts comprennent également Finger Poppin' Time, Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go et The Hoochi Coochi Coo. Sortez vos chaussures de danse pour ce disque - Chubby Checker a peut-être fini par gagner la guerre du Twisting, mais Hank Ballard and The Midnighters faisaient vibrer les maisons d'un océan à l'autre bien avant que Chubby ne voie l'intérieur d'un studio d'enregistrement, et cet état d'esprit se retrouve sur ce disque. Lorsqu'il s'agit de rock and roll dansant, Hank et son groupe turbulent étaient la fin vivante!

"Hank Ballard & The Midnighters"

Hank Ballard & the Midnighters

Original material that was often more than a little lyrically naughty, perpetually tight vocal harmonies, crazy choreography—Hank Ballard’s Midnighters were the toast of Detroit’s R&B vocal group scene prior to the rise of Motown. Hank knew the value of keeping an exceptional lead guitarist in the group. Over the course of the ‘50s, they went from Arthur Porter (soloist on their 1954 smash Work With Me, Annie) to young Texan Cal Green (see Disc Three) to Billy Davis. Like the rest of the group a denizen of Detroit, Davis came into the Midnighters in 1959, when Green was sent up the river for marijuana possession.

Mississippi-born Billy proved his worth tenfold on the slashing two-chorus solo gracing Look At Little Sister, cut August 6, 1959 at King’s Cincinnati studio  with John Faire on the other guitar, pianist Jimmy Johnson, tenor saxist Hank Moore, fantastic electric bassist Navarro Hastings, and either George DeHart or Philip Paul on drums. Along with lead tenor Ballard, the Midnighters were tenor Henry Booth, baritone Lawson Smith, and bass Norman Thrasher, who recalled the origins of Look At Little Sister for the liner notes to Bear Family’s five-CD Ballard boxed set ‘Nothing But Good—The Federal/King Recordings 1952-1962’:

 "We were in Kansas City when Hank come up with the song," says Thrasher, a member of the Serenaders and Royal Jokers before joining the Midnighters.

The diminutive Detroit native Ballard, born John Henry Kendricks on November 18, 1927, joined the group, then billed as The Royals, in 1952 after it had made its first session for King’s Federal imprint. Ballard proved the group’s best source of material, penning their ’54 breakthrough smash Work With Me, Annie, the raunchy followup Sexy Ways, and the biggest dance song of its time, The Twist, which the group waxed for King with Hank newly front-billed in 1958. Right after that came more irresistible dance fare: Finger Poppin’ Time, Let’s Go, Let’s Go, Let’s Go, and The Hoochi Coochi Coo, 1960-61 smashes all penned by Ballard.

Perhaps in part due to the massive cash infusion from the publishing on The Twist, King boss Syd Nathan loyally stuck with Hank long after the hits dried up and the Midnighters broke up in 1963. Ballard finally rejuvenated his career due to James Brown’s production prowess in ‘68 with his black power anthem How You Gonna Get Respect (When You Haven’t Cut Your Process Yet). When he went back out on tour in the ‘80s with a new edition of the Midnighters, Ballard once again installed Davis as his guitarist. Ballard died March 2, 2003 in Los Angeles, having seen the whole world twisting (even if Chubby Checker ended up demonstrating the moves).

Hank Ballard, the man behind The Twist ROCKS!!!!!

Hank Ballard, the man behind the twist fly with the song "The Twist" which Chubby Checker did a cover of and had a hit with first in 1960 and also in 1962. Ballard's original version went to #6 on the R&B chart and #28 on the pop chart. The album "Rocks" lives up to its name with a collection of excellent tracks. But he had hits before that, his first coming in 1953 with "Get It" and the following year a triple with probably his most famous tracks "Work With Me Annie", "Sexy Ways" and "Annie Had A Baby" all three of which challenged the section of the public who saw themselves as "decent", the chart positions however show that the sales figures were high. All of these were released on King's sub-label Federal. In 1959, he was transferred to King and began with the aforementioned "The Twist". The following year it again hit number one on both the R&B and pop charts with the album's opening track "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go", which I think is his best song. In addition to these, the album has more hits like "Finger Poppin' Time (#2 on r&b and #7 on pop in 1960), "The Hoochi Coochie Coo" (#7 r&b #23 pop in 1961), "It's Love Baby (24 Hours A Day)" (#10 in 1955). The year 1961 was good for Hank with four top 10 placements. The booklet is rich in great color images and should appeal to the most discerning.

Hank Ballard was one of the greatest singers in the pre-soul generation!

Hank Ballard was one of the greatest singers in the pre-soul generation – the kind of vocalist who provided inspiration for so many others to come in the 60s – a raw lead singer who really drove his group to great heights – as you'll hear here in this hard-rocking collection of tracks from the best years of the group! Most of these numbers were cut by Hank and The Midnighters for King Records – the kind of raw gems that made the label one of the best of the 50s when it came to all things hard and heavy – and the collection of cuts definitely features the kind of tracks that live up to the title – the work that made The Midnighters one of the first great crossover acts, even before rock and roll was a thing for the kids in the suburbs! Every track's a winner, and the superb Bear Family presentation knocks the set out of the park – with titles that include "Henry's Got A Flat Feet", "That House On The Hill", "Annie's Aunt Fannie", "I Feel That A Way", "Sexy Ways", "Sugaree", "Shaky Mama", "Are You Forgetting", "Stingy Little Thing", "Rock Granny Roll", "The Float", "Big Red Sunset", "I'm Young", "Don't Let Temptation Turn You Round", "Tore Up Over You", and "Don't Ever Change Your Pretty Ways".
