Former Lot of money and Motown musician/songwriter/manufacturer Andre Williams, who proved helpful for One-derful/Mar-V- Lus/M-Pac Information whenever he and Berry Gordy disagreed, captured the newly called Crawlers’ action and invited these to the studio room to chant more than a dance monitor he’d created (with Verlie Grain) known as “Twine Period.” It had been within the same format as Williams’ 1957 strike “Bacon Unwanted fat,” a cool instrumental augmented by chants and sayings, and was a take-off from the Five Du-Tones’ “Woodbine Twine.” “Twine Period” amazed everybody by zooming to amount 14 in the pop graph in Feb 1965.
