In early 1971, Smokin' Joe Frazier stood on top of the boxing world. The Heavyweight Champion was twenty-seven years old, and at the absolute peak of his powers. However, having amassed a record of 27-0 with 23 knockouts, and defeating Muhammad Ali in "The Fight of the Century," Joe decided to take a step back from the pugilistic arts to concentrate on his musical talents. Frazier took to the road with his band The Smokin' Joe Musical Revue (who would later become Smokin' Joe and the Knockouts,) and toured Europe and the United States. He entertained the troops on a USO tour, and even found time to make an appearance on the Dean Martin Show.
