Richard Pryor meets P-Funk, down-home. Tex's still telling the most basic truths: "Finger Popped Myself into the Poor House" and "Who Gave Birth to the Funk" speak for all the soul men virtually wiped out by 1978, when disco seemed to rein over all (so much so that by now Dial was distributed by the Miami dance label TK). The remake of "Hold What You've Got" is horrid, but "Music Ain't Got No Color" is the truth.
