These one dozen tracks represent the complete recorded work that Joe Tex did for Syd Nathan's King Records between 1955 and 1957, and the first thing one realizes while listening to these sides is how derivative they are, sounding a bit like Tex trying to emulate Sam Cooke. It's pleasant enough, but it wasn't until the next decade that he would find his own voice, so this set will be of interest only to the most ardent of Joe Tex fans. Suffice to say, it's hardly the "best-of" Joe Tex, no matter what the title says. ~ Steve Leggett
