Unmissable - one of the all time greats.,
This review is from: The Very Best of Jackie Wilson (Audio CD)
An intense and smooth performer onstage (see the old clips of his performance on Ed Sulivan) Jackie Wilson has been and still is inspirational to many performers (Micheal Jackson owes him much.)
The vocals and musical arrangements are rich and oh so easy to listen to, hence this CD gets regular playing on my system.
'Higher and higher'? An all time dance classic, it's been a hit many times and will continue to move backsides out of chairs and onto the floor for ever. The looping baseline that kicks in to start the record off and continues throughout it's 3 minutes is unsurpassed in it's ability to move feet and bodies to it's rhythm.
Everyone who loves contempory music, what ever genre, should have a copy of Jackie Wilson's Greatest Hits in their collection.
