Description by

Joe Tex, whose stage surname reflects his home state, got his start in the business when he won a talent contest at the legendary Apollo Theater in 1954. One of the best hard-driving up-tempo Southern Soul singers ever, Tex scored many hits on the R&B chart, many of which crossed over to the Pop charts. This classics collection has them all. From his first hit "Hold On To What You've Got" to his biggest Pop smash, "I Gotcha".

Product Description:

Personnel: Joe Tex (vocals).
Liner Note Author: David Nathan .
Tex was one of the best and most versatile of Southern soul singers, one of the few who was able to survive into the disco era without really changing his style, as witness his hilarious 1976 hit, "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman)," which differs from his 1967 "Skinny Legs And All" only by virtue of a slightly altered backbeat. This generous anthology serves up all his important work, from his breakthrough 1964 classic "Hold What You've Got" (Tex sings only the choruses; on the verses, he's essentially sermonizing, a trick which became one of his signatures) to his typically funny older-guy-with-young babe song "Buy a Book."
