4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Nov. 2011
Format: Audio CD
So far reviewers don't seem to have shown much interest in this cheapie. Probably because most compilations follow through to his later hits while this one sticks with the late 50's and even throws in some earlier tracks. Well with no disrespect to cuts like "Higher and Higher" which are excellent, I just tend to be a bit more interested in those artists who were round in the evolving years for soul. A lot of such stuff wasn't issued in the UK for donkey's years just like some of the early rock and swamp pop which has only come out over the last decade - think Bobby Charles and you'll see what I mean.

This comp kicks off with the complete "He's so fine", his first solo album. It then goes on to give us a number of tracks which appeared on singles (that is, those which weren't on the album). It then goes back in time to Jackie's period as lead singer with Billy Ward and his Dominoes (for those who don't know about this aggregation, Billy Ward "owned" the group, he wasn't lead singer, the great Clyde McPhatter occupied this role before Jackie and one gathers it wasn't a very well paid position!).

Jackie's voice was one of the best ever heard in black popular music. Capable of switching from the mindblowing array of vocal calisthenics on the evergreen rocker "Reet Petite" (and to a lesser extent on "Etcetera" the lead-in track on this set) to the relatively straight (though I'm not really sure if Jackie knew what "straight" meant) reading of "To be loved" which has many of the attributes that you'd expect of a slow soul number, Jackie seemed to have everything going for him when he kicked off a solo career. He was a massive influence on fellow performers. Reportedly James Brown picked up much of stage act from Jackie.

Listen to Jackie Wilson's version of Danny Boy - it is the best rendition ever. He takes the song and smashes it out of the arena.
