Teardrops on Your Letter.

Hank Ballard (born John Henry Kendricks; November 18, 1927 – March 2, 2003) was a rhythm and blues singer and songwriter, the lead vocalist of The Midnighters and one of the first rock and roll artists to emerge in the early 1950s. He played an integral part in the development of the genre, releasing the hit singles "Work With Me, Annie" and answer songs "Annie Had a Baby" and "Annie's Aunt Fannie" with his Midnighters.

Teardrops On Your Letter was originally written by Hank Ballard’s producer Henry Glover and released by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters in 1959. It was a minor hit, peaking at in the US. But Teardrops is most-known for being the A-side of The Twist, which surpassed it, reaching and attracting the attention of Dick Clark, the host of TV’s popular American Bandstand, who asked Ballard to perform it on his show

However, it does feature some of Ballard's more pop-oriented songs, such as "Teardrops on Your Letter," "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go," "Finger Poppin' Time," and "The Twist. The inclusion of songs like "Work With Me Annie" would have made this album almost as good of a retrospective as Sexy Ways: The Best of Hank Ballard and the Midnighters; as it stands, it's just a decent collection of Ballard's mid-career work.
