Joe Hinton - Got You On My Mind - Back Beat

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, May 27, 2011 08:51:15

Joe Hinton was born in in Evansville Indianapolis in 1929 and is not to be confused with Joe Hinton the songwriter and artist who worked for Motown among others in the 70s. After he´d been in two gospel groups he was persuaded by Don Robey who owned Peacock records (where one of Hinton's gospel outfits The Spirit of Memphis had released three singles in 1957-58) to have a stab at the secular market. Hinton signed as a solo artist to Peacock's subsidiary in 1958 but had to wait five years and an equal amount of releases before he finally got a hit with his 1963 ”You Know It Ain't Right”. Hinton's biggest success came the year after when he managed to get a top 20 hit with his rendition of Willie Nelson's ”Funny How Time Slips Away”. This is Joe Hinton's final single for the Bacbeat imprint, where he released a total of 16 singles and one album. Sadly he died from skin cancer in 1968, the same year this wonderful piece of music was released.
