Jackie Wilson
NYC 1961-1963 2-CD

48 tracks - with 24 previously unreleased or rare - by Jackie Wilson, whose dynamic vocal style and showmanship earned him the title “Mr. Excitement” from DJ Alan Freed.
Extensive research into the Brunswick label vaults has uncovered these previously unreleased gems and fascinating alternate takes, versions and 45s that have not appeared on CD before, all recorded in New York from 1961 to 1963.
The single-only tracks are presented in stereo for the first time.
Also included is some priceless studio chat, including interchanges between Jackie and his producers Nat Tarnopol and Eddie Singleton.
A current R&B favourite, Call Her Up, is presented as recorded with the original female backing vocals.
Duets with LaVern Baker and Linda Hopkins are well represented, including an alternate vocal take on Think Twice and the stereo debut of Say I Do.
