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.
