The erotic and visceral Midnighters, from Detroit,
propelled by a driving rhythm of guitar, bass and drums,
shocked the world of religious music with the obscene lyrics sung by
Hank Ballard in Get It (1953) and especially
Work With Me Annie (1954), which began one of the first teenage
sagas of popular music.
Teardrops On Your Letter (1958) was, de facto, already soul music.
It was backed with The Twist (1959), Ballard's most famous
invention (a revision of his Is Your Love For Real which was
in turn a variation on the Drifters' Whatcha Gonna Do).
It was the beginning of a new career, highlighted by
Finger Poppin' Time (1960) and Let's Go (1960).
