The Midnighters: Their Greatest Hits (LP, 180g Vinyl)

(Sundazed) 12 tracks.

Shake 'em up! R&B from the vaults of King/Federal Records!The lascivious pen of Henry “Hank” Ballard was responsible for many risqué odes, including The Midnighters’ “Work With Me Annie,” “Sexy Ways,” and “Get It,” major R&B hits of the early ‘50s all included on 1956’s Their Greatest Hits! The FCC banned several of the band’s songs from airplay, which only made them that much more desirable for the growing teenage market, and this Sundazed edition—pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl at RTI—is the ultimate way to experience the best of the throbbing fury of this storied ensemble at its peak. GET IT!

The Midnighters

Don't Change Your Pretty Ways

The Annie saga had just about run its course for The Midnighters. Hank Ballard's lusty crew had made their mark detailing the lovely lady's carnal adventures on Cincy-based Federal Records, beginning with their '54 R&B chart-topper Work With Me Annie (it's on our previous volume) and extending through Annie Had A Baby (their second #1 later that year), Annie's Aunt Fannie, even Henry's Got Flat Feet (Can't Dance No More), a tame Annie Had A Baby soundalike that charted.

It was time for something different from The Midnighters, who rocked as hard as any group of their era in no small part due to their blazing guitarist Cal Green.  They came through with a vengeance on this blistering rocker. Don't Change Your Pretty Ways, cut March 17, 1955 at King Records' Cincinnati Studio, was penned by the entire group (Ballard, Green, tenor Henry Booth, baritone Lawson Smith, and bass Ardra 'Sonny' Woods). Green's visionary octave intro and ringing break licks, coupled with the group's vocal doubling on the latter, sound like a supersonic jet ascending. House saxman Ray Felder adds a wailing solo.

Sadly, the public didn't take to the rocker, yoked to the mournful Ballard composition We'll Never Meet Again. It would be the spring of 1959 before The Midnighters would find their way back onto the charts. A lot of great jumps by this raucous group slipped through the cracks: Rock And Roll Wedding and its flip That House On The Hill; Sweet Mama, Do Right; Rock, Granny, Roll; Tore Up Over You, and Come On And Get It, to name but a few. Born June 22, 1935 in Dayton, Texas, Green would be lionized by today's blues aficionados had he focused on 12-bar solo fare instead of accompanying The Midnighters (Federal did allow Green to wax two singles of his own later in the decade). Influenced by Houston blues guitarist extraordinaire Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, Cal's brash, inventive Stratocaster licks provided a thrilling counterpoint to Ballard's distinctive tenor.
