Texas soul man…In 1970 he cut this swan song album for ''abc/dunhill'' record label.

''The Same People You Meet Going Up You Meet Coming Down'' was produced by Huey P. Meaux.

One of the world’s great mysteries is just why this album replete with great “break beats” isn’t coveted by the funk/ hip-hop D.J. crowd…but hey don’t ponder, purchase it…it still sells for cheap price and is a true cornerstone in any Gulf Coast music
collection…for one thing,the backing musicians are completely out of hand:funky drums, out-of-control bass lines, over-the-top fuzz guitars, screeching Ornette-Coleman style saxophone and trumpet and above it all…Roy testifying with every ounce of sweat and soul his body,mind and spirit can muster…it also contains possibly the BEST version of the Sir Douglas Quintet’s
''She’s About A Mover'' ever recorded…yes,perhaps even better than the original, hardly a fair comparison because Roy strips the proceedings down to their rawest funkified core…and speaking of Sir Doug, Roy Head even fronted the Texas Tornadoes for a tour when Freddy Fender couldn’t make the gig, and if he was any more intense back in the ‘60s then he was a few years ago, well,he certainly hasn’t lived up to the title of one of the songs from that aforementioned album, ''Don’t Want To Make It Too Funky.'' …you won’t be able to take your eyes (or ears) off Roy Head when he’s onstage, but just watch out: this man’s antics with a microphone are akin to an electrified boomerang…
