"I am now and have long been a huge Jackie DeShannon fan, even as a person. Before I met her I loved her music. After we met I had even a higher opinion of her. This album is wonderful. She still is one of the best writers I have listened to. Very few compare to this one's talent and grace."
SINGER/SONGWRITER MASTERPIECE~BRAVO JACKIE!!!

"Around the same time in the great musical sixties three legendary female singer/songwriters Jackie DeShannon, Laura Nyto and Carole King started writing great songs and slowly in the sixties began singing them and releasing their own lp's while other singers and groups had huge hits with their original ground-breaking classics that fill volumes!!! Jackie has the greatest "singing" voice as witnessed by the awesome hit that defined the sixties which was the "decade of love" and richly sung and deeply soulful anthem "What The World Needs Now Is Love" is as riveting as they come plus the original Jackie DeShannon timeless anthem "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" was a mega-hit & timeless classic defining the sixties, but as fate would have it Jackie didn't have a Lou Adler and that was the major difference...spin forward to mid-seventies to "New Arrangement" and you have this stellar and hypnotic set of classic and diverse originals that should have been a huge success such as Carole King's brilliant "Tapestry" collection but with no radio support or promotion this tremendous and uniquely original set was appreciated only by real music lovers who knew that Jackie hit another magical peak in her incomparable career...sadly general public missed out big time as this incredibly great work is filled with extraordinary songs and soulful performances making a must have musical treasure for any real music lover!!! Don't miss this awesome masterpiece if you love a once-in-a-lifetime groundbreaking legendary artist in a stunning collection of originals all arranged to perfection...wondrous collection is above and beyond and rocking and riveting "Over My Head Again" is awesome and "Bette Davis Eyes" with its funky dance-hall arrangement is definitive version of this original DeShannon classic. Bravo Jackie...congratulations on your smash 2006 British concerts! Check out the new RPM Import releases of other Jackie DeShannon masterworks with each a musical treat & original classic. Thank You Jackie DeShannon!"
