Editorial Reviews

A contemporary of Junior Parker and Bobby Bland in the southern states. Where the first presented the bluesier side, Bland and Hinton presented a sophisticated soulful side of R&B. They also shared the same big-band backing group for many recordings, who as well as providing a rich brass backing to ballads, could also 'jump' with the best of them. Joe Hinton was a gospel singer with a melodic tenor voice who was tempted to the bright lights and big pay days of R&B by Don Robey, owner of Duke/Peacock Records in Houston, Texas, who launched the Backbeat label as a vehicle for this fine soul talent. Cherry Red. 2006.

I am a music collector. I still have/pay my 8-tracks, cassettes, albums, 45's and cd's. I have been looking for an "album" by this artist for years. I have 45's, but to find this made me truly excited! I received it before the holidays and with everything going on, I waited until I could truly enjoy it to listen. I particularly wanted "Be Ever Wonderful" and of course "Funny How Time Slips Away". I was also interested in any other songs by this artist. However, this is the first CD that I bought brand new that sounds like it was bootlegged off of a bad album (it looks legit). The two songs I really wanted are scratched and skip -- I could not believe it! I seldom order music this way and really don't want to judge everyting by this experience -- but to me it is the worse thing that could happen. It was like I bought a Christmas gift for myself and when I finally opened it, it was already used by someone else and was very disappointing. I don't know the protocol for returning music (especially after opened), but I know that generally there is a no return on such items. I will be very leery if I ever purchase music online again. I could go on, but I won't -- you get the idea. Thank you for letting me get this off of my chest.

One reviewer pans this release by the Shout division of the U.K.'s Cherry Red Records for the poor sound quality, but while it's far from perfect, for those of us who grew up with the snap, crackle and pop of the 78- and then 45-rpm records it isn't THAT bad. And it does come with interesting liner notes written by volume compiler Clive Richardson.

Where it fails in my estimation is in the omission of 3 of the 4 sides he placed on the national charts from 1963 to 1965 and 3 of the B-sides. Even more irritating is that they leave out the charted side of the B-side that IS included!

In terms of national chart performances, Joe Hinton could not have come along at a worse time, since, not only did he have to face the full brunt of the debilitating effects of the British Invasion, which for 2 years (1964 and 1965) pushed all but the very best North American acts from the top rungs of the lucrative (air- and juke box play affecting record sales) Billboard Pop Hot 100, but Billboard then suspended the R&B listings from late 1963, through all of 1964 and into January of 1965 before reinstating them.

And in Joe's case, his first charted side showed he had developed a good following within the R&B market when You Know It Ain't Right climbed to # 20 on those charts in July 1963 b/w Love Sick Blues as Back Beat 537, whereas the best the A-side could do on the Hot 100 was a disappointing # 88. And by the time of his second charter in October 1963, the # 89 Hot 100 Better To Give Than Receive (b/w There's No In Between as Back Beat 539), the R&B charts were in limbo so there's no official indication as to how it performed in that market.

Joe Hinton's collection "Funny" reminds us of the once common intersection between blues and soul. With humour and that unforgettable falsetto, this CD belongs in every collection.

This is classic Joe Hinton. I enjoy listening when sitting back with a glass of merlot waiting for the last vestiges of daylight to fade away.
