Product Description

* Everyone at Ace loves Jackie DeShannon, the woman for whom the term singer-songwriter could have been invented. Last year Ace released "Break-A-Way", a collection of her compositions performed by everyone from Brenda Lee, Bobby Vee and P.J. Proby to Irma Thomas, Wynona Carr and the Byrds.

* But no-one could interpret her songs better than Jackie herself, and here on the first of three volumes Ace turn their attention to her own singles, many of which have never been released on CD before.

* Spanning the years 1960-1963, "You Won't Forget Me" comprises the A- and B-sides of her first dozen Liberty 45s, all presented in their glorious original mono mixes. Highlights include Jackie's stunning original versions of `Needles And Pins' and `When You Walk In The Room', both of which were successfully covered by the Searchers, helping spark the folk-rock movement.

* Working with producers and arrangers of the calibre of Snuff Garrett, Clyde Otis, Dick Glasser and Jack Nitzsche, she recorded in a variety of other styles that ranged from folk (`500 Miles') and R&B (`I'll Drown In My Own Tears') to country (`Faded Love') and gospel (`Oh, Sweet Chariot'), but the stand-out songs are those Jackie penned herself, frequently with co-writer Sharon Sheeley.

Ace finally did what every Jackie De Shannon fan was expecting: a full anthology of the lady's singles, with the original sound! It's better than anything done before regarding her incredible body of work, despite the wonderful reissues done on RPM as well (and I have them all!). Can't wait for the next volumes, but am surely not disappointed with this one. It's priceless to hear these early years, it's like digging the history of pop music, coming from the age of rock'n'roll. I don't think there have been better sounding versions of "Needles & Pins" and "When You Walk in the Room", and by "better" I don't mean "clean", but exactly like the way the singles sounded then. There's a seductive thing about the early, artisanal age of the recording industry that we'll never find again.

It never rains but it pours! After many years of nearly zero releases on CD of her old recordings (apart from endless regurgitations of greatest hits and the occasional Raven compilation release from Australia), the availability of Jackie DeShannon's many album releases from the 1960s and 1970s are now pretty constant it seems.

This latest release from ACE is a good example yet again of that label's different and unique approach. They have already released an excellent CD (Break-A-Way 1961-67) of the lady's compositions as sung by others in their famous songwriter's series. This is the first attempt I know to capture all Jackie's 45 rpm Liberty releases (including some cancelled releases) in one CD series, with a further two volumes promised to follow. This first volume here covers the period 1960 to 1965, its 26 tracks reflecting both the times from the pop early 60s through her better known initial hits (especially as covered later by the Searchers) and releases off her 1963 initial LP. The vast majority of the releases were not big hits and sadly it is clear that a mix of song choices and variable as opposed to poor production values are largely to blame. The pictures included with the very well documented up to the usual ACE standard booklet reflect that the promoting of her as a blonde bimbo compared with the lady's mature approach to music and choice of songs made her one suspects not easy to button hole for US radio stations in that pre Beatles era. At times sounding more like Brenda Lee and other female singers of that early period, it is really only with the Jack Nitzsche productions (especially the last 8 tracks including "Needles & pins" and "When you walk in the room") that the greatness that was to come starts to be revealed.

In total, a release for Jackie DeShannon completists and one suspects the really great and memorable stuff will come on the next two releases in this series.

Though Jackie de Shannon is named as a singer songwriter she was as much an interpreter.Technically she was a country singer who wrote a few songs with others.By the time of her first single in the U K-the title song of this CD-she had not only cut many singles for Liberty but had been on other labels under other names.This was in 1962 which tied in with her connection to the British Invasion and the fact that Metric Music were sending over acetates of songs by her and Randy Newman (an early co writer).In other words Jackie de Shannon ignored by the song pluggers and the BBC was discovered by the British especially the Searchers who recorded 3 songs and ended up outselling her originals.The Beatles requested Jackie de Shannon for an opening act at Shea Stadium,an event her record company cashed in on by issuing an LP of previous singles-Breakin' it up on the Beatles Tour (which gave the singer an instant Beatles collectable-which Liberty U K passed up on)
Her first LP issued in the U K was one of folk songs at a time before Dylan had gone electric and with all this mass attention she was brought over here to record with the Charles Blackwell Ork.
However there were no actual hit singles either here or in the States but she was a Shindig regular.By the time this CD ends there have been no hits but others in the U K were recording her songs-Olivia Newton John with Till you say you'll be mine,Philipa Lewis with Just like in the movies & Marianne Faithful's Come and stay with me come to mind.
It makes Jackie de Shannon a female equivalent of Harry Nillson in the sense that others had hits with her own songs and the artist scored their later Top 10 hits with other peoples' songs.
For Jackie de Shannon it went on into the 80s when Kim Carnes hit with Bette Davis Eyes.Which proves that there's plenty of potential hits around without so many becoming singer songwriters

As a Jackie DeShannon music fan, I bought this cd to fill a few gaps of early material I didn't have. Included are all the A's & B sides on Liberty Records from 1960 - 63. The sound quality is great and the cd comes with a fantastic 20 page colour booklet. Overall, I found some of the early tracks slighty diappointing, alittle hit and miss. However, there are some outstanding tracks on this cd as well - 'Heaven is being with you', 'You won't forget me', many of the better songs coming from 1963. Overall, hit and miss (but looking forward to volumes 2 & 3).
