"It's no secret Elvis copied Jackies signature slick black hair, tight Italian pants and sharp shirts when he shed his rockabilly look. He even sampled Jackies hand gestures. One thing he couldn't touch was that voice. Smooth as satin, sexy as silk lingerie. And those smoothly executed splits in those tight pants? PLEASE. This music sends me back. If you want excitement this is the music and the man."

"I am a life-long soul musicologist/singer and alongside the immortal Sam Cooke, I have always been a great fan of Jackie Wilson. This CD offers all of his hits and most moving renditions of his most enduring recordings. I've read many of the reviews about this and other Jackie Wilson compilations and it strikes me as odd that no one has made any mention of the fact that, aside from being a spectacular performer and vocalist, Jackie was perhaps the only soul singer of his time...or any time who had the vocal compass of a classically trained tenor. Had his career not been rooted in the racially repressed 50's & 60's, he may well have enjoyed the success of a Mario Lanza. Granted, Jackie's voice was untrained but with some work he could well have enjoyed success in both the Soul and Classical field, a harbinger of today's "Popera" genre, again not unlike the great Mario Lanza. Jackie Wilson's remains one of the greatest tenor voices ever heard and he will forever be the original Soul Tenor."

"I always put people right when they go on about Michael Jackson. I tell them about Jackie Wilson and how Jackie is so far greater in all areas it's not even funny. They never believe me until I show them Jackie on DVD or CD. THEN, they believe me! This is another wonderful compilation on the great man and another excellent introduction - but remember - it is only an introduction, GO BUY SOME MORE! More excellent liner notes and great CD production. A word to Brunswick - release the unreleased and alternate takes by Jackie please!!"
