Words by Jesse Serwer—
Beres Hammond hasn’t made very many music videos during his storied, four-decade-plus career. He’s just not that kind of artist. One of the first, and most memorable, videos he did make, though, was for “No Disturb Sign,” from his major-label debut, 1994’s In Control. The tune itself is the ultimate working class love song, told from the point of view of a 9-to-5-er trying everything he can to squeeze in a little bedroom time with his lady. The memorable line “I think I’m gonna have to call in sick-can’t leave my woman like this” says it all.
