Review

Review Text Although Joe Hinton put out an LP that was also titled Funny How Time Slips Away in the mid-'60s on the Backbeat label, this 2006 CD does not have the same track list. It's an entirely different, 21-song compilation of material that Hinton released on Backbeat from around 1964-1968, including of course the title cut, which was the sole big hit he enjoyed. While Hinton was a bit of a journeyman who never settled into a specific niche, these are good if unspectacular sides mixing varying blends of soul, pop, gospel, and a bit of blues, country, and Southern grit now and then. Although a good amount of the material recorded in the wake of "Funny (How Time Slips Away)" is obviously trying to mine the same brassy, urbane soul-pop of that hit, there's also some more standard early soul that makes use of his highest, most gospel-influenced vocal range. The effect sometimes makes him sound a little like a rawer Brook Benton (and in fact, a few of the songs are Benton covers). Yet he did get in a more down-home groove with tracks like "The Whole Town's Talking," which sounds like mid-'60s Motown at its funkiest, while "Don't Tell Her the Truth" could well be the best '60s soul cover of a Paul Anka composition -- not that there are many people keeping count. ~ Richie Unterberger
