Joe Tex, Name Dropper!

Joe Tex - I Can See Everybody's Baby

Joe Tex is no stranger to these pages, so I'll simply say that "I Can See Everybody's Baby," an early-'70s thing that went unreleased until Charly dug it up in 1989 for the Different Strokes comp, is a nice mid-tempo number in Joe's usual style. Here, Joe points out that in his travels he sees women all over the world, including Ray Charles' woman, Isaac Hayes' woman, James Brown's woman, Tom Jones' woman(!), etc.; when he goes home, however, he can't find his own old lady!
