When WORK WITH ME ANNIE by Hank Ballard was released it was dissed bigtime by the FCC. “They almost came into Syd Nathan’s office and snatched his license off the wall,” Ballard joked. “Nuns in Boston went around snatchin my song off the jukebox.” Ballard did admit the title referred to sex. “We had this slang word in the ghetto, we’d say can we get some work tonight?” Yes of course the song went #1 R&B.
