Joe Tex - Yum Yum Yum The Early Years 1955-1962

Joe Tex was one of the most original soul stars of all time. With his raspy voice and a hint of Little Richard, he certainly had a style of his own. One listen to his number 'Yum Yum Yum' and you'll get an idea of his rock and roll / proto-soul style.
This is the most comprehensive set of his singles yet released on CD and includes all the singles he made before achieving fame in 1964.
Arguably the most underrated of all the 60s soul performers, Joe Tex, with his unique style singlehandedly laid some of the most important parts of rap's foundation.

Many thanks for the Tex, KC. Little known fact. He used to live in Baton Rouge, and was building a guitar shaped mansion there, but he never completed it before he died. Was bulldozed and the old property is now on some of the priciest land in that city (Highland Rd.).
