Skinny Legs And All - Joe Tex - The Very Best Of Joe Tex (CD)

An inexhaustible live performer in the vein of JAMES BROWN and SAM & DAVE, who penned almost all of his own material, TEX inserted humorous dialogue into some of his best hits including the lively party tracks MEN ARE GETTIN' SCARCE and SKINNY LEGS AND ALL, while holding down a freewheeling groove on dance ditties I WANT TO DO (EVERYTHING FOR YOU) and SHOW ME/5(12).

Joe Tex (Joseph Arrington, Jr., August 8, – Aug) was an American rhythm & blues singer. He gained success in the s and s with his brand of Southern soul, which mixed the styles of country, gospel and rhythm and blues. Born in Rogers, Texas, in (often misreported as ) and raised in Baytown, TX, Tex's career.

Supposedly inspired by the sight of a large man being rude to his much smaller wife in the street, "Skinny Legs and All" was an unusual hit for Joe Tex, at that time best known for his ballads. Recorded in an in-studio party to provide atmosphere, "Skinny Legs and All" has the loose, almost casual groove of a classic Otis Redding and Carla.
