Very Best Of Joe Tex – Real Country Soul

LP (Item 935105) Dial/Charly (UK), Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP

A fantastic collection of work from the great Joe Tex – a double-length set of tracks from his early years on Dial Records – the time when he hooked up with producer Buddy Killen and really came into his own! Joe's voice is fantastic, and the music is a key sidebar to tracks recorded in Memphis and Muscle Shoals – a genre that's almost Joe's own, onto himself.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
For years, we were turned away from this one because of the "strings" in the title – but don't make the same mistake, because the record's a nice one, with Joe singing in a sophisticated southern soul style that still has a lot of nice raw edges. The record was recorded with Tommy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dial/Atlantic, 1966. Very Good-
We couldn't think up a better title to describe the way that Joe Tex approached soul music in the 60s – giving 110% to his music, working like a dog to climb the ranks that were already filled with other budding soul stars! This album's a perfect example of Joe at his best – nearly all ... LP, Vinyl record album

I'm In Love
Charly (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint-

Keep It Up
Charly (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great (and now out of print!) collection of Dee's best work for the Vee Jay label – and even better than the usual hit collection, because it features cuts he recorded with The Dells, The Kook Gents, The Upsetters, and The Delegates.

Charly (UK), 1978. Very Good
An obscure late 70s session by Solomon Burke – recorded in a style that's got some of the rootsier, bluesier touches of his early 70s work on MGM, plus a bit of the smoother sound from his mid 70s sides for Chess! Solomon's voice is still in fine shape on the set, and although Jerry "Swa ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback Band

Keep On Steppin'
Event, 1974. Very Good
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donny Hathaway Live
Atco, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jay Dee

Come On In Love
Warner, 1974. Near Mint-
A brilliant lost record from the Barry White side of the 70s soul universe – the one and only album issued by Jay Dee, and a set that's every bit as great as other White side projects with artists like Tom Brock, Danny Pearson, and Gloria Scott! Like all of those, the soulful maestro is very ... LP, Vinyl record album
