Gimme Skinny Legs


He was born Joseph Arrington Jr. in the central Texas town of Rogers. However, if you're a soul music fan, you knew him much better by his stage name, Joe Tex. Tex began his recording career in the fifties, but didn't hit his stride until the mid-sixties, with a string of southern R&B smashes. His biggest hit during that time was the live-sounding ode to ladies with skinny legs, Skinny Legs And All. It was a number one hit on Billboard's R&B chart in 1967, and a top ten hit on the Hot 100 pop chart. Skinny Legs And All was also certified as a gold record for sales of over a million copies. @therealdonrocks
