Synopsis

Product Description
J.J. Jackson, all 300 pounds of him, was indeed a great 60s soul man, one of Otis Redding s rivals as a grainy, gritty vocalist and a fine songwriter to boot. His initial recordings came out on Calla, which Warner Bros./Loma acquired; the label then put out two different versions of this album, which we ve combined into one 20-track release comprising J.J. s complete Warner Bros./Loma recordings! Features the hit But It s Alright and his own version of Come and See Me (I m Your Man) , which the Pretty Things borrowed for one of their best sides, plus It Seems Like I ve Been Here Before ; Too Late ; Courage Ain t Strength ; A Change Is Gonna Come ; Sho Nuff (Got a Good Thing Going) ; Four Walls (Three Windows and Two Doors) ; I Don t Want to Live My Life Alone ; Try Me ; Down but Not Out ; That Ain t Right ; Dig Girls ; You ve Got Me Dizzy ; The Stones That I Throw ; Give Me Back the Love ; Ain t Too Proud to Beg ; Love Is a Hurting Thing ; Boogaloo Baby , and Let It Out . A Collectors Choice Music exclusive, with notes by Gene Sculatti exploring the career of this under-appreciated soul singer.
