One of the finest voices in Southern Soul, George Jackson's success as a writer meant he wasn't pushed as an artist and so his vinyl output is disappointingly small. This is rectified with this 12-track LP. It comprises ten tracks featured on Kent's George Jackson 'Fame' CD's, plus two previously unreleased tracks. Backed by either the classic Fame rhythm section of David Hood, Roger Hawkins, Barry Beckett and Jimmy Johnson, or by the Fame Gang, the tracks selected show George working through some of his most famous compositions as well as some lesser-known gems. The opening cut is his version of 'I'm Just A Prisoner' (made famous by Candi Staton), while further numbers were championed by Wilson Pickett, Clarence Carter and Spencer Wiggins. All are given a distinctive reading by their composer. Others such as the astounding 'I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew' languished in the vaults, unrecorded by anyone, a victim of Jackson's extraordinary work-rate. Two new songs, 'Add A Little Sunshine' and 'That From The Heart' keep the quality high. Released with the full co-operation of Fame Records, the music is from the original source tapes, and comes housed in a sleeve that features photos from the Fame archive.
Tracklisting:
SIDE ONE:
1. I'M JUST A PRISONER
2. I CAN'T LEAVE YOUR LOVE ALONE

SIDE TWO:

5. SAVE ME
6. THAT FROM THE HEART.
