Song#23 “Answer Me” Vivian Collins (Cara Bell, William Garrett, Mike Hanks) Serock “2002” (1962) Arranged and Directed by Mike A.Hanks…

“Answer Me” is one of several songs here that Willie Garrett had a hand in writing with Mike Hanks and Dave Hamilton during the early 1960’s. Arguably too black-sounding to get airplay on pop stations- and in any case unlikely to appeal to the nation’s pop-inclined record buyers- “Answer Me” veers towards Detroit’s heavyweight vibe. An instrumental of it by the star makers got released on Hank’s exit label in early “1963”, but Vivian Collins’ gospel-styled exhortation brings gravitas to iron spades…

Although the exit single is the sole one bearing the star-maker’s name, Various permutations of the group played around Detroit’s Clubs and on countless recording sessions. The line-up on “Answer Me” included guitarist Eddie Willis and bass player James Jameson, and the collective invariably featured pianist Joe Hunter. Schooled in jazz and imbued with a palpable sense of hope from living in the Motor City during a period of demographic and social change, this stellar collective nicknamed the (Earl Van Dyke & The Soul Brothers) B.K.A. The Funk Brothers was responsible for the distinctive “Motortown to Motown Detroit sound.

These are things that we allow ourselves to view, think, and be part of every day without considering the risks to our spiritual health.
