Product Description

Here on his debut album, Freddie Jackson enjoyed admirable chart success with each of the four singles. The initial single, "Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)," was a very rhythmic ballad with an easy-flowing chorus enhanced by some nostalgic lyrics. It hit the Billboard R&B charts in April 1985, and stayed afloat for 26 weeks. The song peaked at the number one position, and held it for six straight weeks. Jackson came right back with "You Are My Lady," a romantic and ideal wedding song whose simplicity and substance assisted in its migration to the top spot on the charts, where it had a run of two straight weeks. The third and fourth singles were the dance-oriented "He'll Never Love You (Like I Do)" and the picturesque "Love Is Just a Touch Away." While the beat is aggressive on the former, Jackson's debonair approach to the lyric keeps the song under control. Jackson gently caresses the lyric with his soothing tenor on the latter. Respectively, the songs peaked at numbers eight and nine after 17 and 14 weeks on the charts. The New York native even undertakes the jazz standard "Good Morning Heartache" with a mellow but fiery passion. Jackson's utilization of his vocal skills with much vibrato, which became a signature of his, was very well received.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, true soul classic! 27 May 2008
By Robert
Format:Audio CD
Freddie Jackson does soul the typical way it should be, but with that little extra buzz of perfection. This album is tops, the first from Freddie. I recall my good friend Lloyd Stephens, who grew up with me in Whites Square, Clapham, South West London, playing this album back in 1986. I sat with Lloyd in his room and observed how he rocked and sang along to the whole album, and suddenly he was moved by it so much that he looked up at the ceiling and shouted out "Hitch!" Listen to this album, feel the classic soul and that's what you'll say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite debut! 27 Sep 2004
By Preston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although Freddie Jackson's debut had only 8 songs, it was a very entertaining album overall! Those hits such as the soulful Rock Me Tonight and the other 3 top 10 hits that galvanized this album to platinum status. I still love Love Is Just a Touch Away, the funky He'll Never Love You and the gorgeous You Are My Lady. Both Love is and He'll Never sound like they could be heard in Atlanta and in Morgan County, Georgia than the New York studios that the songs were recorded. The other 4 are just as good, especially his remake of Good Morning Heartache. This album really jumpstarted his career and he even challenged Luther Vandross for R&B balladeer, chart space and awards for 3 to 4 years. It is still a classic album to me!

4.0 out of 5 stars A powerful debut album which remains timeless. 16 Jan 2007
By Justo Roteta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After having his demos rejected by both Motown and MCA, Freddie Jackson signed Capitol Records and became an R&B superstar. For me "Love Is Just A Touch away" and "I Wanna Say i Love You" are the album's crown jewels but this album remains a true classic--all eight tracks are superb.

I love this album as many of the underrated Freddie Jackson's songs were released on the radio. That's why I gave it a 5-star rating.

Freddie Jackson CD reminds me of so many things and adventures that I have had in my life. The words are so sweet in most of the songs on this CD. He is an awesome crooner.
