and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

  1. Lots of good stuff on this album! Thanks for sharing.

  2. could you please put a new link up for JOE TEX LIVE AND LIVELY thank you do you happen to have joe tex Turn Back The Hands Of Time

  3. Could you tell me the password for this album?

  4. Most don't remember Joe Tex. I do because as a kid I thought his "Skinny Legs And All" single was funny. In retrospect, he was an amazing soul R&B performer who deserve more recognition. Thanks for bringing his work to those who might not know him.
