Early-to-mid 70s southern soul majesty from George Jackson – excellent material from one of the great songwriters from the era, and a singer who conveyed deep soul and genuine
emotion with the very best of them! The tracks here are the first ever compilation of singles Jackson released in the day, and have been heavily sought after almost since – on MGM/
Sounds Of Memphis, the affiliated ER Music, Hi Records and even Chess – plus some excellent numbers that weren't issued at the time. The material has the feel of our favorite Memphis and other points southern soul, but with George's unique way of a keeping a mellow groove steeped in raw emotion – wonderful vocals by Jackson, and Memphis style backing of soulful guitars, horns, sweet keys, rollicking drums and insistent bass lines. The songs themselves are exceptionally great, really making the whole package a knockout! Titles include the masterful "Aretha, Sing One For Me", plus "Things Are Getting Better", "Let's Live For Ourselves", "If You Never See Me", "All In My Mind", "Dear Abby", "I Don't Need You No More", "Let Them Know You Care", "Willie Lump Lump", "We've Only Just Begun" and more.
