Second Listen: "The Chokin' Kind" (Joe Simon)

Back in 1969, Joe Simon released the Harlan Howard penned "The Chokin' Kind," which would go onto earn Joe his first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Black Singles charts as well as a Grammy Award in 1970 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

Peaking at a #13 on the Billboard Hot 100,  "The Chokin' Kind" would become Joe Simon's first top 20 hit on the Hot 100 charts, and was one of a string of hits Joe had during the late 1960s. Take a hopefully second listen below to Joe's "The Chokin' Kind" and Enjoy!
