5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value., 28 Feb 2010
This review is from: Greatest Hits of Joe Tex (Audio CD)
For anyone who has yet to experience the delights of Joe Tex, this is an excellent place to start. Although I normally avoid cheap budget label releases (mainly due to fear of re-recordings and/or poor sound quality), this comprehensive compilation contained a few tracks that I didn't already have. To say that I was not disappointed would be an understatement - a great selection at a great price that lives up to its title.

5.0 out of 5 stars King of the Rappers, 20 April 2011
This review is from: Greatest Hits of Joe Tex (Audio CD)
The monologues which were a feature of the Joe Tex singles of the 60s came to be known as raps.But when this name was adopted for the atrocious non music which began to emerge in the 80s it had nothing to do with Joe Tex who by that time had gone Muslim.
But he really DID cut an album called King of the Rappers
During his long career he had hit singles on 2 different labels but had begun on a New Orleans label in the 50s impersonating Little Richard.
In the 70s came country singer Diana Trask who cut the first Tex tribute album which was endorsed by the great man.Another country star who picked up Tex songs was Barbara Mandrell
He's a big enough name to warrant a 3 CD set called the Singles As & Bs and this one on a budget label is just a sampler
