Created by club personality and former hairdresser Sir Monti Rock III, this album is probably one of the most bizarre products of the Disco era. As Disco Tex, Rock scored a Top 10 hit with "Get Dancin'" and "I Wanna Dance Wit' Choo" hit the Top 25. Includes five tracks penned (or co-penned) by Kenny Nolan, the songwriter who wrote Frankie Valli's "My Eyes Adored You" and Labelle's "Lady Marmalade," and featured vocalists include Sugarloaf's Jerry Corbetta (remember "Green-Eyed Lady"?) and Freddy ("Palisades Park") Cannon.
Collectables Owes Us An Apology!

"Usually, when a CD is issued by Collectables you can expect a great sounding blast from the past with old hits, LPs and two-fers one never expected to find on CD. This is not the case with Disco Tex and his infamous Sex-O-Lettes. I was both disappointed and angry at the quality of this CD. Whoever mixed this CD should never work in the business again. It is absolutely one of the most horrible sounding CDs I've heard. I am not rating the music on the CD 1 star. I am rating the CD quality 1 star. Was this the best music of the 70s? By no means was it that great! Was it even the best disco? NO! But, was it among the most fun? Absolutely, yes! So, I was anxious to play the CD and was so disappointed when it was, literally, painful to the ears. My old 45s have better sound quality. I'm so glad I still have them. What was Collectables thinking to release such a piece of pop culture history with such terrible mixing. For those who remember the original recordings, you'll remember the audience applause and interaction in the background of some of the songs. It has been mixed on this CD in such as way that the audience background overpowers the music. Sometimes, that is all you hear. There is absolutely no bass. It sounds almost as if it is coming from an old transistor radio - very tinny sounding and piercing to the ears because the high end is so distorted. Collectables made some fun piece of history sound like trash. Anyone who was not familiar with the original sound of these recordings will wonder what we were thinking to have put "Get Dancin'" and "I Wanna Dance Wit' Choo" on the top of the charts. Shame on Collectables! If you can find this on a near mint or VG+ LP, buy it in that format. Please, do not buy this CD. I wish I would have heeded the warnings of the other reviewers who gave this CD a bad rating because of the sound quality."
Classic performance, bad recording, stupidly edited.

"Overall, a worthless CD of an excellent performance. My old LP has better fidelity and stereo separation. The first 5 numbers are run together as a single track on the CD."
Bad in theory

"The original vinyl pressing was fun and sounded great. The CD version takes away a LOT of the quality. Get the vinyl if you can find it."
