Classic down-home soul from one of the best and most versatile of singers of the genre (and, significantly, one of the few who was able to survive into the disco era without really changing his style). This nicely chosen anthology collects his hits through the early '70s, from his breakthrough 1964 "Hold What You've Got" (Tex sings only on the choruses; on the verses, he's essentially sermonizing, a trick that not only became a signature but got him tagged early on as a proto-rapper) to classics including the hilarious older-guy-romancing-younger-babe song "Buying a Book" and the gospel based "The Love You Save May Be Your Own)."
