Summer wishes, and welcome to a new edition of Jackie. With all of Jackie’s recent activities, there is no shortage of material, both vintage and current, to report. In this issue, you will find reviews of several diverse appearances over the past few months. Thank you to Bill Reed, and our “field reporter” Mark Tyler for their exclusive commentary. This issue also marks the conclusion of the three-part series of “cover” versions of When You Walk in the Room. There are many more recordings of this classic song than what we have covered, but we haven't been able to track them down yet. Any help in acquiring additional performances of this song are readily welcome!
Spain’s premiere JDSAS member, Iñaki Orbezua,publishes a fanzine titled Otoño Cheyenne. The latest issue, number 4, features a thirteen page cover story on Jackie, in spanish. This will certainly be a collector’s item! Anyone wanting to obtain a copy, send $6 (which includes airmail postage) to: Iñaki Orbezua, P.O. Box 162, 48080 Bilbao, Spain. You can also contact Iñaki via email at: email@example.com.
And finally, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of the earliest JDSAS members and record collector supreme, John Malcolm Anderson. A roots music expert and enthusiast, he supplied the JDSAS with clippings about Jackie’s early career in the 1950’s, as well as recordings of Jackie’s earliest singles, which at the time hadn't yet been heard by most of us. He will be missed by music lovers and journalists the world over.
