GEORGE JACKSON

kent



cd

Released: 24th Aug 2012

£11.99


2nd volume looking at the recordings George Jackson made at Fame Studios when he was chief songwriter between 1967 & the mid 70s.

Working alongside classic Fame house bands: Hood, Hawkins, Johnson and Beckett and the Fame Gang these recordings are real quality. George Jackson is one of the great writers of Southern soul and this volume includes the original versions of classic hits written for, among others, Wilson Pickett (‘Mini Skirt Minnie’ and more), Candi Staton – (‘I’m Just A Prisoner’), Bettye Swann (‘Victim Of A Foolish Heart’, later a hit for Joss Stone). Such was the depth and quality of his work that there are songs that have not been issued until now.
