I even love his early stuff pre Brunswick. OK it's not northern soul (maybe not soul) but they're still great records. Perhaps Reet Petite should be added to the list for a laugh.

'Lonely life' on early orange Brunswick.

Similar in style to Freddie Houston 'If I had known' it's a killer tune (if you like that sort of stuff)

Get one quick while it's still cheap!!!!

:thumbsup:

I'll add a little bit of Lavern Baker to the mix here.....love the duet 'Think Twice' fantastic record does this count...lol

Also there is a brilliant X-rated version which has to be heard to be believed, Lavern asks Jackie if he likes chocolate ice cream and invites him to lick it.....wonderful stuff.

Regards - Mark Bicknell.

Saw the same programme ,one of my fave Jackie Wilson tracks.

It was on the B side of the re-issue of higher and Higher in the 80's.

Incidentally the perfomance on the Ed Sullivan show was recorded in the 60's

With his dance routine you can see where we got the idea from

:yes:

"Whatcha gonna do about love" & "It only happens when I look at you"

These 2 do it for me every time in a word "Genius" :(

it was whilst performing Lonely teardrops in Las Vegas 1975 that he collapsed sad.gif

your spot on about his dancing even the likes of James Brown, Elvis michael Jackson and Prince copied some of his moves (i've got a head full of nonsence facts) :(

I've just listened to "Watcha Gonna Do About Love" for the first time in ages. I never really struck me playing the LP before. Good track but not one of his best imo.

A must read is Lonely teardrops, the unedited version.

Can't choose just one of Jackie's songs as a favourite.

I like his "Open the door to your heart" on the "Higher & Higher" L.P.

link

Agree with this.. mate ov mine played this in a spot and it sounded ace!. Although I voted for "Haunted House" in poll, I could pick so many from his list of outstanding tunes, someone mentioned flip side "Im Travelling On" been spinning this a bit lately and love it.. another side I love is his flip of "Ive Learned about life" the stunningly soulful "Nobody But you" (guaranteed to get me back in good books wid the lass after an argument) :)

This might get me lynched but i've always considered 'because of you' a very overrated record. I just don't like it at all. Anyone else share this heresy?

IMO it IS overated, the man done some ace stuff, but I'd have "Because Of You" way down the list!
