Joe Tex's fame came from another genre; on this EP you hear the real deal in his early formative years. TV was capturing the public's attention in the mid-1950s and folk heroes were the thing for the youngsters. Our man slipped his pen across the paper and scribed an epic to one of the coolest cowboys Davy Crockett, but he was not happy about the interruption to his loving due to the TV character prominence. His girl has pushed him aside and she digs Mr. Crockett more than she digs her man. 'Davy, You Upset My Home', has everything in place, cool lyrics, hip swaying rhythm all the ingredients of a hit, crank up the volume and cut a rug. With a stop start tempo and undulating rhythms the compelling 'Cut It Out' is the most, high on rhythm and again should have rocked the Jukeboxes. Take a breath and a cool drink before turning over this hot platter, 'Open The Door' is an urgent rhythm 'n' blues shouter that is full of youthful urgency. To close Tex pulls out all the tricks, screaming vocal, a band that is so wild that the recording must have gone into the red. The result one of the wildest stroll songs ever 'You Little Baby Faced Thing', four of the greatest none hits on one EP
