Jerry Cook ( I Hurt On The Other Side )


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was listening to a CD that contained " IHOTOS " yesterday , and got a good glow that it still sounded as fresh as it did on my first hearing of it , some 36 years ago .......

What I concluded was , that despite knowing the tune word for word , chord change for chord change , I know nothing about the man himself .......

" IHOTOS " was written by Sidney Barnes and J J Jackson : was JJJ Jerry Cook ? as to my ears , the vocal phrasing on some of the lines are very similar to that of JJJ's recordings , or is Mr Cook another mysterious addition to the folklore of the northern scene ? ......

Apparently SB knew nothing of the recording. Tremendous record. I sorely miss my Capitol demo. :-(

Agree, it is the best version by a whisker...   

Bruv rather than commenting on posts from nearly 10 years ago you may get better discussion going if you comment on current topics or start your own up just a thought?

A fact that sadly was the case in those days , for many of the writers of songs : I doubt that he - or JJ Jackson - saw any money from Trio Company Music , who published the song .......

A question Ive asked many a time does anyone know about jerry cook.......

as mentioned above Sidney Barnes says he doent know of him I heard him say it on the R Searlings show......then again Ive spoken with a few artists over the years and asked various things where they have denied any knowledge of the question I had asked only to find out later they were being lets say 'very discreet'

cheers

mel or is it :g:

Remember talking to Sid Barnes for quite a while at The Dome after Backdoor Kenny told me he was Duke Browner????????

One of those nights eh!

A couple of weeks later he played at the 100Club with Hoagy Lands and I managed to sing some IHOTOS with him live tho'he sounded better than me.

We squared the name check but he didn't give me any info on Jerry Cook-I always thought it was Little Jerry Cook when he got a bit bigger! laugh.gif

Not so good when I started singing I'd quaffed a few as you can imagine. :D

With thanks to a good friend , the mystery surrounding Jerry Cook has been solved .........

Jerry Cook - his real name - is alive and well , and lives in Salt Lake City Utah , USA .......

Jerry was given his chance at Capitol ( like so many others at the time ) , but unfortunately , when " I Hurt On The Other Side " failed to make an impact , he was not given a contract . He made another record - funk orientated - at the beginning of the 70s , which again failed to be successful . He is no longer associated with the music scene .........

Hope he's now aware that he made a tremendous record that we all love to this day!

Another anecdote:

One time, when Colin Curtis was playing the Sidney Barnes version at the Mecca, a chap came up to the decks and said; "Wo' mate! - I've got another version of that!" Colin relayed the info over the mike saying "... so if anyone knows what this other version is, we'd be very interested to hear it..." :D

(Cruel, but quite funny at the time!)

Slightly off the thread but I remember a certain "young Soulie" asking Mr Levine at the same Mecca for a record called "I'm a fatso", as the young lad honestly thought that was the title.No prizes for guessing what it was.lol!                              Regards Fred

Is it now accepted that Jerry Cook was in fact a real person, an artist in his own right, not another vocalist operating under a  pseudonym ?

There may still be some mystery about Jerry Cook because this release on TREK was just sold on Ebay in July of this year. It's a record that until now appears to be previously undocumented ... at least not before on Ebay or Discogs. Interesting that it is also produced by Arthur Wright ... who was the arranger on I Hurt On The Other Side. And a publishing date of 1977, some 10 years after I Hurt On The Other Side ?  

There is also another release by a "Jerry Cook" out of Springfield Illinois. Is it the same artist ?
