Inez Foxx (born 9 September 1942) and her brother Charlie Foxx (23 October 1939 – 18 September 1998) were an American rhythm and blues and soul duo from Greensboro, North Carolina. Inez sang lead vocal, while Charlie sang back-up and played guitar. Their most successful record was with their novelty composition, "Mockingbird".
The original hit version of "Mockingbird" leads off the 14-song disc, and it's simply a great early pop-soul song with irresistible vocal sparring between the sister and brother. Of course, nothing else on the CD matches that classic, although "Hurt by Love" was a moderate hit for them in 1964 on both sides of the Atlantic. Any compilation worthy of the name The Best of Charlie & Inez Foxx needs to incorporate some of their 1966-1968 material for Musicor, which is collected on the Charly anthology Count the Days. It also needs to have better packaging than it gets on the no-frills sleeve that Collectables gave this release.
