A spectacular run of music from the great Jackie Wilson – a 3CD set that features 60 tracks in all – with a heavy dose of both of Jackie's chapters in soul music for the Brunswick
label! Wilson started out recording for Brunswick
in New York – where he brought a new level of power to the pre-soul years, learned from his roots in R&B – but fused into a more sophisticated style that had a huge impact on many others to rise in soul during the 60s! Then, during the middle of that decade, he moved over to work in Chicago – where help from Carl Davis and other key Brunswick
talents gave Wilson's magnificent vocals a whole new groove – and a way to keep on going strongly all the way to the 70s. This great set documents all those years, and is overflowing with great cuts – titles that include "3 Days 1 Hour 30 Minutes", "Soul Galore", "New Girl In Town", "You Left The Fire Burning", "I Can Feel Those Vibrations This Love Is Real", "Just Be Sincere", "Love Uprising", "Whatcha Gonna Do About Love", "You Brought About A Change In Me", "Just Call My Name", "To Make A Big Man Cry", "No Pity In The Naked City", "I Get The Sweetest Feeling", "Reet Petite", "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher", "The New Breed", "Light My Fire", "The Tear Of The Year", "Talk That Talk", and "Doggin Around". Also includes duet material – "Shake A Hand" and "I Found Love" with Linda Hopkins, "Chain Gang" and "Uptight" with Count Basie, and "Don't Burn No Bridges" with The Chi-Lites.
