Hank BallardFinger Poppin Time/I Love You, I Love You So-o-o ... 7-inch
King, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Blue label King pressing.)

Hank BallardHank Ballard – 24 Hit Tunes ... LP
King, 1950s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of those King Records collections that manages to pack a heck of a lot of tunes on a single LP – yet manages to make the whole thing still sound great! The work here is all from the early years of Hank Ballard's career – the kind of hard rocking and R&B tunes that first brought him to fame, right up to the early soul sides he was cutting before leaving King for the first time – including some danceable numbers that are pretty great. Titles include "Baby Please", "Give It Up", "The Twist", "The Float", "I'm Young", "Move Move Move", "The Coffee Grind", "Finger Poppin Time", "Daddy Rolling Stone", "No It Ain't", "Cute Little Ways", and "Ooh Ooh Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing.)

Hank BallardHow You Gonna Get Respect/Teardrops On Your Letter ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredible track! Hank plays it super-hip by shouting "How you gonna get respect if you ain't cut your process yet!" And while his comments on African-American hairstyles may not have the same power as some of James Brown's political messages – the track's hard raw storming funk sound more than makes up for that! "Teardrops On Your Letter" is a mellow soul remake – and both tracks feature backing by the legendary Dapps! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hank BallardOne & Only Hank Ballard & His Midnighters ... LP
King, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Hank Ballard definitely falls into the "one and only" category – especially with work as great as his sounds on this classic album for King Records! Hank sings in a style that's as badass as his look on the cover – as raw in these cuts as James Brown was during the same stretch for King – with an ability to both hit a hard groove with The Midnighters providing sharp R&B accompaniment – and also slide into some occasional heartbreaking numbers that were perfect for his raspy vocal approach. And although Hank had a few big hits for King in the 50s, this set's got lots more obscure numbers – showing that the genius of the young Ballard is a virtual bottomless well – on titles that include "I'm Crying Mercy Mercy", "I'll Keep You Happy", "I'll Pray For You", "Cute Little Ways", "Move Move Move", "She's Got A Whole Lot Of Soul", "So Good To Be Home", "House With No Windows", "Sugaree", and "Rain Down Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Hank BallardWhich Way Should I Turn/Funky Soul Train ... 7-inch
King, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
2 great raw R&B numbers from Hank Ballard. "Which Way Should I Turn" is a blues drenched ballad, with a raspy King groove churning underneath, and "Funky Soul Train" is a raw blast of R&B shout that doesn't quite deliver the hardcore funk you'd expect from the title, but is satisfying nevertheless. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a King "dots" sleeve.)

✨✧ Hank Ballard & The MidnightersSingin & Swingin ... LP
King, Early 60s. Poor ... $4.99
Some of the hardest, heaviest vocal group work of the pre-soul generation – a set of legendary King Records material by the young Hank Ballard and his always-tight Midnighters! The set captures them in the second chapter of their time at King – slightly cleaner in some of their subject matter, but always with that sneering, almost sinister vibe that Hank brought to his vocals – kind of a biting, raspy quality that also made his voice a key influence on soul to come in the 60s! There's a few hits here, but also lots more obscure material too – and titles include "That House On The Hill", "Sweet Mama Do Right", "I'll Be Home Someday", "Tell Them", "Stingy Little Thing", "Ashamed Of Myself", "Teardrops On Your Letter", and "The Twist". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label King pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has skips on the first two tracks. Cover has some seam splitting on the bottom, but is OK overall.)

King, 1950s. Good ... $9.99
A classic set of hard rockin R&B from Hank Ballard and the legendary Midnighters – as raw a batch of vocal group tracks you'd be hard pressed to find! The album features plenty of tunes from their "Annie" cycle of songs – including "Work With Me Annie", "Annie Had A Baby", "Annie's Aunt Fannie", and "Henry's Got Flat Feet" – plus gems that include "Sexy Ways", "Get It", "It's Love Baby (24 Hours A Day)", "Tore Up Over You", and "She's The One".

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

James BrownGet On The Good Foot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A really great double-length set from James Brown – maybe slightly less iconic than some of his other classics from the early 70s, but a record that really shows the man stretching out and finding his groove! The whole thing is a great example of the new freedoms that Brown was experiencing away from King Records – and the approach not only recreates the mix of funk and soul that you'd find on Hell, but also echoes some of the People Records style to come too – in part because there's a few tracks that have the vibe of a funky 45, and also because James lets the newly-revived Hank Ballard com in and do a 5 minute recitation about how great James has been to his career. Titles include the long numbers "Funky Side Of Town" and "Please Please" – plus "Your Love Was Good For Me", "The Whole World Needs Liberation", "Nothing Beats A Try But A Fail", "My Part/Make It Funky (parts 3 & 4)", "I Got A Bag Of My Own", "Dirty Harri", "Recitation by Hank Ballard", "Ain't It A Groove", "I Know It's True", "Get On The Good Foot (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cold Sweat", in a new arrangement by Dave Matthews!

VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – All Twistin Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Plenty of twisting here – and a surprisingly hip little collection that takes a look at the many incarnations of the famous dance craze in the early 60s! If you think you've already got the twist sussed out, then think again – because there's way more to the style than just big hits by Hank Ballard and Chubby Checker – as many other twist-based numbers have a raunchy, R&B-soaked sort of groove – a gritty, nitty sound that makes this package way more of a soul-styled collection than you might expect, with a few bluesy moments thrown in as well! As usual with Ace, the notes do a great job of illuminating this special moment in music – and most tracks in the package are from the years 1961 and 1962 – with titles that include "Twisting On Bandstand" by The Sprouts, "Mama's Doin The Twist" by Linda Hopkins, "Ya Ya Twist" by Petula Clark, "Twistin With Linda" by The Isley Brothers, "No Twistin On Sunday" by The Zircons, "Twist Around The Clock" by Clay Cole, "Twist & Freeze" by Billy Huhn & The Casuals, "Twist A St Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages, "The Lone Twister" by The Lone Twister, "The Twist To End All Twists" by Robby Lawrence, "Do The President Twist" by Lula Reed & Freddy King, and "The Monster Twist" by Tyrone A'Saurus & The Cro-Magnons.

VariousMy Goodness Yes – Soul Treasures From The Silver Fox Label ... LP
Silver Fox/Sundazed, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A long-overdue collection of work from Silver Fox Records – one of the coolest indie labels in the south at the end of the 60s, part of the Nashville-based SSS empire, and poised at a really unique crossroads of soul! Silver Fox was always a bit funkier than SSS – and often had a groove that brought deep soul vocals into play with tighter funky backings – in a way that took the already hard-burning southern sound of the time, and managed to cook it up a few notches! Silver Fox mostly only issued singles, and apart from a few key hits, a big part of the label's output has never been properly reissued – nor properly remembered – but as usual, Sundazed have gone out of their way to really present the material right. Titles include "Do Your Duty" and "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "Motor City Funk (part 1)" by Bright Lights, "Poppin Popcorn" by South Street Soul Guitars, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "You Shakin Things Up" and "You See Me" by Robert Parker, "So Deep In Love" by Eddie Giles,"Love Em & Leave Em" and "Yes My Goodness Yes" by Willie Hobbs, "You Got To Pay The Price" by Gloria Taylor, and "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell.
