Product Description

Product Description

* Joe Tex finally hit the charts in 1965 with `Hold What You've Got' - but he'd already been trying to make it on record for a full decade.

* "Get Way Back" brings you - for the first time on one CD - the recordings that Joe made in the first five years of his career, for King and the American Ace label.

* Here are 27 cuts that embrace New York rock`n'roll, and New Orleans R&B that point the way to the great soul singer that Joe would become in the 60s.

* All of the tracks used here are the original singles masters, unlike previous CD reissues of some of the songs, which have been presented as alternate takes. Many of the tracks have not been reissued on CD (or any other format) before.

* As well as some great music on the disc, the CD booklet contains several previously-unpublished photographs from Joe's first ever recording session in September 1955.

* Much of the humour of many of his later hits has its origins in these recordings. It's very easy to see and hear from these great tracks that Joe was eventually going to be a star when the time was right

4.0 out of 5 stars For the first time 28 April 2009
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
In the U K Joe Tex never had any records issued until he was on Dial and scored in the States with a series of soul singles like Hold on to what you've got.What snippets of info appeared had said he'd been on the New Orleans label ACE which the UK reissue label is named for.So UK collectors labels like Sue-also named for a U S one-issued about 4 tracks we had a chance of hearing just what Tex had been like in the 50s when he was more Little Richard than Brook Benton.
So this is a first-the complete Tex singles made at this time.
