Editorial Reviews

Having gotten his start as an arranger for the likes of Jack McDuff and Jimmy Witherspoon, J.J. Jackson proved himself to be a talented songwriter and deeply soulful singer by the mid-'60s, when he scored big hits with But It's Alright (what a groove!) and I Dig Girls . Those join Try Me; Let It Out; Boogaloo Baby; That Ain't Right , and seven more sought-after gems!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as expected November 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved "But It's Alright" by J.J. Jackson, so I was hoping that this CD would have more songs with the same sound. However, I was rather disappointed. The songs were not up to my expectations as far as the beat and sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Little Soul Band in the Land January 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Saw J.J.Jackson around 1970 in Doncaster, great. I already have this on Vinyl and needed the CD version. Great Album, has But It's Alright and the Sam Cooke perennial, Change Gonna Come. Worth it just for these but I have always liked I dig Girls and the other tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars His 1966 Calla Album Converted to mp.3 December 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you like your Soul/R&B music delivered in a belting style, then you'll love Jerome Louis "J.J." Jackson, who was born in the Bronx, New York on April 8, 1941. He began his career in music as an arranger for Jazzman Brother Jack McDuff (Down In The Valley, A Change Is Gonna Come, What'd I Say? among others) and Blues artist Jimmy Witherspoon, as well as a songwriter, contributing material to such as The Shangri-Las, Mary Wells, Inez Foxx, and British band Pretty Things, who had a U.K./Australian hit with a cover of his composition Come See Me (I'm Your Man) - see track 7.

When he turned to performing he did so with tiny Calla Records of New York, launched in 1965 by Nate McCalla, a "connected" type who, at one time, was a bodyguard for Morris Levy, owner of Roulette Records, and who was found in 1980 - just a few years after the demise of his label - with a bullet in the back of his head!

With Calla, J.J. recorded a handful of singles and one album - this one - which came out originally as Calla LP C1101 in late 1966. Culled from that album were the hit singles But It's Alright, a solid # 4 R&B/# 22 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in October 1966 on Calla 119 b/w Boogaloo Baby, and I Dig Girls, a # 19 R&B/# 83 Hot 100 in late 1966/early 1967 on Calla 125 b/w That Ain't Right.

In the spring of 1967, neither side of Till Love Goes Out Of Style/Seems Like I've Been Here Before (Calla 130) went anywhere, but later in June, Four Walls (Three Windows And Two Doors) made it to # 17 R&B and # 123 Hot 100 Bubble Under on Calla 133 b/w Here We Go Again. None were part of this album.
