Brother and sister, Charlie and Inez Foxx toured the UK in the 1960’s to appreciative and knowledgeable soul audiences. From Greensboro North Carolina they signed with Juggy Murray Jones’ Symbol / Sue label in 1962. When Inez appeared in The Twisted Wheel she looked to us like a movie star – a pill box hat with a veil just put the lid on it!
Their biggest hit by far was Mockingbird in 1963, number two R&B and number seven hit parade (USA). Ask Me and Hurt by Love, followed before they went to Musicor, then (1-2-3-4-5-6-7) Count the Days in 1967 and Come By Here (Musicor / Dynamo 1965) for Dynamo. They started out in 1962 and disbanded as a duo in 1968.
Inez was born on September 9, 1944 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
She married producer Luther Dixon. She moved to Stax in 1972 doing a great LP Inez in Memphis.
