    Hank Ballard and the Midnighters/Sammy Turner EP Group of 2 (1959-60). Two EPs in this lot, one from the Father of The Twist, Hank Ballard, the other from Sammy Turner, best known for his 1959 cover of the forties tune "Lavendar Blue." Ballard's "Singin' and Swingin," in fact, included his version of "The Twist," plus "Teardrops On Your Letter," "Cute Little Ways," and "House With No Windows." The Turner EP is a white label promo copy of "Lavendar Blue Moods," which includes "Honey," "Falling," "The Things I Love," and "I Want To Be Loved" - but not his signature recording, "Lavendar Blue!" And what copies! The Ballard EP is still sealed, while the Turner EP is EX 7/ NM 8 and comes with its original white promo sleeve, pictured at our website. From the GRT Collection
