"Joe Tex stands in the tradition of James Brown and this varied album displays his funky style to the full with its mix of raunchy, fast-paced numbers like I Gotcha and You Said A Bad Word, plus beautiful ballads like The Woman Cares and For My Woman, plus rootsy funk workouts like Love Me Right Girl. The rolling R&B of Bad Feet comes close to classic early rock `n roll, while my favorite is Takin' A Chance with its moving organ and rousing trumpets. God Of Love is another gripping love song with a catchy hook. The lovely arrangements give the sound a Stax-Volt feel that perfectly suits Tex's warm and versatile voice. This album with its great songs and exuberant delivery is a little known classic and well worth investigating if you're into rootsy southern soul and funk."
