Track listing is here. There's no telling if this will remain the definitive Tex compilation if his catalog continues to get passed around, but there's a good chance that it won't be surpassed.

As noted by reviewer Wade Kergan, "Tex was among the grittier songwriters of '60s Southern soul , so the fact that the irascible redneck Coe would pick him as the lone soul artist in his mostly traditional country David Allan Coe Presents series isn't a surprise. As noted by reviewer Steve Leggett, "Whatever else Joe Tex has been in his long career, and that includes being a charismatic showman, singer, and performer, he has always been a fine songwriter, and this generous track set of his key s Dial Records sides has plenty to prove the point.
