Several years ago i read an article where it said that Jackie Wilson was possibly joining Motown when his early contract with Brunswick had come to an end. However Nat Tarnopol with the help of some rather dodgey people PERSUADED him to resign to Brunswick. Any thoughts on this? Chris.

That's the rumour that was going around back then and ever since.  It was said that some of the gangster's thugs held him by his legs out a window of a high building, just to persuade him that they were serious.

 

We've already had a few threads about this.  There was an extensive thread about this on Soulful Detroit Forum.
