The material that the late Joe Tex cut for the Dial label was almost as influential as the Southern Soul recorded at Stax. Skinny Legs And All collects 24 of the great early sides he recorded there. Starting with 1962's Meet Me In Church and finishing with '69s Chicken Crazy, this CD takes in such lasting hits as Show Me, S.Y.S.L.J.F.M. (The Letter Song), Hold What You've Got, Skinny Legs And All and Men Are Gettin' Scarce, with the wrily delivered lines "Men are gettin' scarce /Scarcer than hen's teeth /And that's mighty scarce!"
