This is the first-ever CD issue for one of the milestone albums of Southern Soul. This package contains nine bonus Joe Tex treats recorded from 1971-75, including a world premiere release for Joe's in-demand Modern Soul monster dancer "Lesley". The CD showcases every facet of Joe's talent, ranging from his "soul rapping" to in-demand dance cuts like "All The Heaven A Man Really Needs" and "Under Your Powerful Love" (both appearing on CD for the first time in their original mixes) to swingin' '60s soul throwbacks, country-style story songs (later revived by the "Man In Black" himself, Johnny Cash) and even a bit of unstoppable southern fried funk.
