Victim Of The Joke?...An Opera
Together, the pair wrote over 200 songs, including Sam & Dave's "Soul Man" and "Hold On, I'm Comin'" and Carla Thomas' "B-A-B-Y." Much like Hayes, the songwriter also took time to record as a solo artist, and this ambitious LP stands as a testament to his endless creative spirit. 'Victim of the Joke' pairs original pop-infused soul music and covers (including an infectious rendition of the Beatles' "Help!") with interludes of dialogue and sound effects to tell the story of a love affair.
Porter's searing rendition of the standard "(I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over" has been sampled in over 35 songs by artists like The Notorious B.I.G., the Wu-Tang Clan and Mary J. Blige. This is the first-time Victim of the Joke? Is reissued on vinyl.
