To Vanfan1 - taking this a step further for you, the second Joe Hinton was actually Jay Lewis (great 45s under that name), but Jay Lewis' real name was Joe Hinton, so when the other and more famous Joe died, Jay went back to his REAL name. Confusing to the collector, but I bet he got a lot more bookings at the time....don't forget these were the days when nobody really knew what some artists looked like. I forgot to say he had also made records under the Joe Hinton moniker before but had to change to Jay Lewis when the other Joe had such a huge hit with FUNNY. Also lookout for a stunning deep soul 45 under the mane of Betty & Jay. Hope that helps.

I am glad that someone has finally made it clear that there are really two Joe Hinton's. Just to add a little more clarity to the issue, the Joe Hinton of "Funny" fame is the singer on ALL of the backbeat records you have listed here. In fact he had over twenty 45's in the 1960s; he died of skin cancer in 1968, and therefore all records from the 1970s were by the "second Joe Hinton." There is a lot of misinformation about this - in fact, there is a CD (not really legitimate) that is sold on ebay, claiming to include a lot of Joe Hinton material, yet includes songs by BOTH artists - they don't even sound alike (but both were great!).
