HANK BALLARD ~











All day at stone work building I had this song rolling around in my noggin', so we put it on and played it over & over & over which is quite the point with Hank Ballard (November 18, 1927 – March 2, 2003). Of his many crackerjack songs, Ballard wrote and performed "The Twist," which in 1960 Chubby Checker made a million on.

Bob,

A great one to get stuck in your head. Always liked this version done by Bonnie Bramlett. Ignore the stupid graphics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ia0O3HJWb4

Mike,

Is there a Bonnie Bramlett version of anything that isn't at least interesting, if not terrific? I don't think so.

Besides, how are we going to get great music back if we don't play it?

And play it
all's well, Bob
