ORIGINAL 10 INCH LP. Before “Rock Around The Clock” (recorded April 12, 1954) and Elvis’ “That’s All Right” (recorded July 5, 1954), Hank Ballard and The Midnighters recorded “Work with Me Annie” (January 14, 1954). Despite or because of its salacious lyrics, it was immediately successful in the R&B market charting for 7 weeks. That particular song was The Midnighters’ answer to Etta James’ “answer song” to The Midnighters, (Dance With Me Henry). Which became her first hit earlier that year. Several of these early Midnighters’ hits were banned from airplay by the F. Due to their overtly sexual lyrics. However, despite this, they received massive publicity, and crossed over to the white teenage audience, resulting in massive crossover sales. The sleeve of this copy is a 2.0 good and presents well despite the full splits at both the top and bottom seams and a light ring mark from a glass that can only been seen at an angle in the light. The record is visually 2.0 good with heavy surface scratching and only scratch on side 2 last cut that is slightly detectable by touch. There is substantial surface noise but this is a beautiful loud record. The item “THE MIDNIGHTERS-THEIR GREATEST HITS-ORIGINAL 10 INCH LP-VINYL 2.0 COVER 2.0″ is in sale since Sunday, May 08, 2016.
