5.0 out of 5 stars Country soul and class 20 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
Its difficult to describe just how good this album is, and what a tragedy Jackie deShannon is so little known in the UK. Best known for her 60's songwriting skills (When You Walk Into The Room etc), she led the way for country rock & soul with this album in 1972. It should stand alongside seminal albums such as Burritos #3, Workingman's Dead and Garden Party for music of this genre. What sets this aside is the fine quality of song, and the understated playing of the Muscle Shoals session legends. There is a slight pop sheen to the music, but it is made interesting by innovative time signatures and arrangements that prevail throughout. This probably lost the country audience at the time (no bad thing), but failed to cement her in the stable of quality singer/songwriters where she belonged. Any fan of Tom Rush, Van Morrison, Dan Penn, Guy Clark, Laura Nyro or Willis Allen Ramsey should purchase with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of her best 14 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Jackie de shannon is one of the underrated singer/ songwriters of the last 40 years. Thankfully many of her albums are being re-released along with many bonus tracks. This is one of her strongest and most consistent albums. The backing from the muscles shoals musicians is excellent and gives Jackie room to spread out her singing and feelings. The bonus tracks produced by Van Morrison are a real find and although not top notch Morrison or De Shannon material are still worth a listen. As an introduction to this artist you cannot do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice mix of covers and originals 29 Mar 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This isn't the ultimate collection of Jackie's music (as the title might suggest) but it is nevertheless a magnificent showcase for her talents.
All the sixties classics that Jackie is famous for, whether as singer or as songwriter. Here you will find What the world needs now (a Bacharach-David song that was a British and American top ten hit for Jackie), Put a little love in your heart (Jackie's biggest American hit, which she wrote). Many people think that Jackie wrote Needles and pins - she didn't, but it was her version that the Searchers covered. It became a major international hit for them and this encouraged them to record some of Jackie's own songs, most notably When you walk in the room.
Aside from the famous songs, this collection contains many excellent covers of other people's songs that demonstrate Jackie's brilliance and versatility. Apart from Needles and pins and What the world needs now, these include Don't let the sun catch you crying, It's all in the game, Summertime, You don't have to say you love me, Will you love me tomorrow and Call me.
Jackie has been poorly served by CD releases but things are slowly improving. This collection makes an ideal introduction to Jackie's music but will also be of interest to those who have some of her other CD compilations - some of the tracks here have not appeared on CD before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but brilliant 20 Nov 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
On this album of her greatest hits, Jackie DeShannon straddles many musical styles with grace. Her own compositions and some songs that she first recorded have been covered by many other artists down the decades.
Annie Lennox and Al Green covered Put A Little Love In Your Hart, When You Walk In The Room and Needles And Pins were made huge hits by The Searchers and have seen many other versions since then, whilst Come And Stay With Me was a hit for Marianne Faithfull. All of the songs here are very strong, with moving lyrics set to sublime melodies.
Other highlights include What The World Needs Now Is Love and Love Will Find A Way, but every track is really a gem. DeShannon had a fine pop sensibility and a lovely voice; the arrangements are great too. The most conspicuous omissions are Vanilla O'Lay (a minor hit for Twiggy) and Bette Davis' Eyes from her 1975 album New Arrangement, later made a hit by Kim Carnes.
Those two, plus many other memorable tracks, are available on the Best Of compilation on the Rhino label. Those who like Spector style girl group pop, 1960s folk-pop and authentic soft rock will find much to enjoy on this album. It is worthwhile to add to your collection even if you own the aforementioned Rhino collection, even if only for the poignant ballad Come And Stay With Me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way Before HER TIme 20 Sep 2005
By W. Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jackie Deshannon was writing and producing back in the 60's when girl singers were just suppose to sing. As the 70's dawned Jackie took keep on trying to find her place in the market and she sure hit the mark with "Jackie". Her brillant lp never really took off, but the music is still great. When I was a kid "Would you like to learn to dance" was my favorite songs and it was great to hear it again. The "PLUS" includes several singles on atlantic that had never made a cd or an Lp till now. Keep the Jackie music coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars an incomplete collection of a huge talent 1 Sep 1999
By Will the Singer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jackie DeShannon is one of the biggest talents to ever hit rock & roll. Unfortunately, this CD seems to be the only collection still in print. While some of the songs are first-rate, others are not her best, and the timing is very skimpy. It's a fine place to start, but listener's would be better served by searching out The Definitive Collection, and her studio albums on vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful DeShannon Masterpiece~Bravo Jackie! 16 Sep 2008
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jackie DeShannon started having a mesmerizing list of memorable chart hits in the great musical sixties such as highly memorable "You Won't Forget Me", barn-storming "When You Walk In The Room", hauntingly gorgeous "She Don't Understand Him (Like I Do)", timeless classic anthem "What The World Needs Now Is Love", soul-deep "The Weight", glorious epic "A Lifetime Of Loneliness", pathos filled "Come And Get Me", pleading passionate "I Can Make It With You", then finished out the decade with one of the greatest classic anthems of all time, self-penned "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" is the masterful timeless anthem of brotherhood having a life all its own, going on and on over the decades since but original version nails it big time. For reasons unknown when the masterful Memphis masterpiece "Jackie" was released, this brilliant collection received zero support from radio yet was praised for the great songs and incredible quality of performances, these sublime originals are sung with exquisite raw & passionate soulful vocal beauty that is matchless. "Jackie" was recorded in Memphis with that pure raw sound throughout in a brilliant collection of varied songs, production credits don't get better than legendary masters Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd & Arif Mardin with an inspired stellar group of legendary Memphis musicians. Opening strong with sublime John Prine "Paradise", this swampy rhythmic cooker goes to the core of this great song then comes gospel-edged "Heavy Burdens Me Down" taking it to church featuring a soulful DeShannon raw earthy vocal filled with passionate urgency. Hauntingly gorgeous illuminating Jackie vocal filled with an aching yearning make "Brand New Start" deeply moving while Neil Young "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" classic becomes a mesmerizing emotional experience with fascinating tempo changes making this superb version definitive. Storm builds in riveting De Shannon original "Laid Back Days", becoming a stunning tour-de-force making one wonder why a groundbraking versatile talent on this amazing level of artistic brilliance received zero radio exposure, total collection is a tremendous masterpiece with Jackie rocking out with the best of them, catch her hot guitar licks featured in original classics "Laid Back Days", "Vanilla O'Lay", "I Wanna Roo You", and rocking finale of "Jackie" the compelling tour-de-force "Anna Karina"! What were they thinking not programming this awesome work for everyone to enjoy and why was a brilliant masterpiece like "Jackie" kept from the listening audience? Luckily we now have this great Rhino first-rate beautifully remastered classic with an amazing mix of unreleased highly listenable bonus gems, four produced by Van Morrison creating this wondrous classic "Jackie...Plus" collections, easily one of the all time greatest collections from a female singer/songwriter from this era is not to be missed. Anyone loving those great mega-productions from the past, remarkably all live sessions surrounding easily the greatest raw earthy passionate voice of her generation and beyond, don't miss this phenomenal collection that will soar in value as supply becomes scarce, this one is the real deal! Bravo Jackie DeShannon, you really did it this time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluer 11 Oct 2009
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection is absolutely stunning. Most of these tracks were not familiar to me; so I greatly appreciate the ample 27 cuts on the disc & the informative liner notes. The remastering and engineering on this disc is terrific, giving great clarity to the sound of these vintage cuts. Also, I am very appreciative to be able to hear the songs of Jackie DeShannon in one place. Her music as a recording artist has tended to overshadow her stature as a songwriter. I'm impressed by the consistent quality & punch of her material. I bought this disc with a flurry of other discs, and find myself repeatly grabbing this one.

Irma Thomas' track that is the title track for this collection is an amazing record with that punchy "No no no no" chorus; it's instantly become one of my favorite classic rock tracks. The Searchers' version of "When You Walk in the Room" went to #35 on the Billboard charts and has a distinctive guitar line. Helen Shapiro's recording of "Woe Is Me" has throbbing tom-tom percussion that knocks the track through the roof. Brenda Lee's "So Deep" pops joyfully out of the speakers in contrast to the lyric, "I'm blue, so blue; I can't get bluer." Barbara Lewis' "Stop That Girl" from her "Baby, I'm Yours" LP sounds majestic with the rising chorus. "I Remember The Girl" is such an excellent song with this great version by The Bandits packing a punch from that era, "In some little town where she will settle down, will I be there to share her plans & dreams?." The Concords' "Should I Cry" with their high falsettos is a delightful doo-wop with the chimes ringing vividly. Ricky Nelson recorded "Thank You Darlin'" for his "Seven" album that is in my collection. This remastered version sounds so fresh & clear. I love the girl group record by The Fashionettes, "Daydreamin' Of You," with its loping guitar line, "When I said hello, you went on your way." From The Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man" album comes Jackie's lovely "Don't Doubt Yourself Babe" with the McGuinn/Crosby harmonies and the Byrds' trademark jangly guitars. Jackie's demo recording of "Only You Can Free My Mind" has a great vocal performance. "Break-A-Way" is a delightful celebration of Jackie DeShannon, the songwriter. The engineering and rarity of many of the recordings make it essential listening. Enjoy!
