    Hank Ballard and His Midnighters LP Group of 6 (King, 1960-62). Hank Ballard and his distinctive sound forged his way from R&B, crossed over into early Rock and Roll, and influenced the sound and direction of Pop music in the process. The writer and original performer of "The Twist" had already been perfecting his chops for nearly a decade before Chubby Checker became a household name with his own recorded version. Included here are six essential LPs from the group's years at King Records, including The One and Only Hank Ballard and His Midnighters (King 674, 1960) in EX 7/ GD-VG 4; Finger Poppin' Time (700, 1960) in EX 7/ NM 8; Spotlight On Hank Ballard (740, 1961) in EX 7/ NM 8; Dance Along (759, 1961) in EX 7/ NM 8; The Twistin' Fools (781, 1961) in EX 7/ NM 8; and The Jumpin' Hank Ballard and The Midnighters (793, 1962) in EX 7 (neat store stamp on back cover)/ NM 8.
