AllMusic Review by

This compact overview of the 1960s and '70s soul artist Joe Tex contains all the essential ingredients of his career, including his first hit, "Hold On to What You've Got," the '60s dance floor classic "Show Me a Man That's Got a Good Woman," and "S.Y.S.L.J.F.M. (The Letter Song)." Tex wasn't a mere soul shouter, as the tender "Hold On..." demonstrates, though most of his successes came from the sweaty, Memphis-style dance cuts heavily featured here that took full advantage of his robust vocal talents.
