Atlantic Live

back talk

Ask any of Jackie’s fans what their favorite album is, and there is a good chance they will answer Jackie, her 1972 Atlantic Records debut. The mix of great original songs, well-chosen covers, The Memphis Sound, and of course Jackie’s soul-drenched vocals, earned this LP rave reviews and cult classic status. Finally, Rhino Handmade has issued the first U.S. CD release of any DeShannon album. Titled Jackie…Plus, the CD features not only the compete 1972 album, but the Sweet Sixteen/Speak Out To Me single, and 10 previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1973-74. The liner notes by Sheryl Farber are also to be commended, and the packaging is first-rate. But it is limited to a numbered run of 2500, and only available online, so don’t delay getting your copy. You can order direct from www.rhinohandmade.com, or go to the JDSAS website and click on the link on the opening page. For more information on this release, please read ahead...
