Editorial Reviews

Lonely Teardrops turned out to be something of a pivotal single for Jackie Wilson. A single that would top the R&B chart and make the Top Ten pop, it was one of the last tracks written for Jackie by Berry Gordy and Billy Davis before there was a parting of the ways owing to royalty disputes. Whilst Berry Gordy went on to claim his own place in music history, things still happened for Jackie Wilson. Lonely Teardrops became something of a signature tune for the man dubbed Mr Excitement, largely based on his stagecraft. Indeed, his live work would go on to inspire the likes of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, both of whom acknowledged their debt to Jackie Wilson. This album, originally issued on Brunswick in 1959, failed to chart yet shows the sheer diversity of material that Jackie was prepared to tackle.

Jackie Wilson (born Jack Leroy "Jackie" Wilson, Jr., June 9, 1934 - January 21, 1984) "was an American singer and performer. Known as `Mr. Excitement,' Wilson was important in the transition of rhythm and blues into soul. He was considered a master showman, one of the most dynamic and influential singers and performers in R&B and rock history." And wow, how Jackie performs on this album! He gives his all to these songs and every track is a winner; there's not a dud in the lot here. Quite a few of these songs come from Jackie's 1959 record album entitled "Lonely Teardrops." As for the sound quality on the CD, I thought it was rather good; I'm sorry that another reviewer probably got a defective copy of this album.

"Lonely Teardrops" was a major hit for Jackie; he does this very well and it's a memorable tune. It was the title of his album of the same name and "Lonely Teardrops" even became Jackie's signature song! I doubt too many other artists could have done this so well. Jackie never lets go of a superfluous note and that's amazing. "Each Time (I Love You More)" is beautiful; this love ballad gets the royal treatment from Jackie and he does yet another superb job on the energetic "That's Why (I Love You So)" which hit number 2 on the US R&B chart after its release in 1959. As is the case with all the tracks here, the music fits in smoothly with Jackie's vocals. "In The Blue of the Evening" is another charming number I always like to hear and I also like "The Joke (Is Not on Me)." Jackie sings "The Joke (Is Not on Me)" with perfect timing and that electric guitar works great in the arrangement! "Someone To Need Me (As I Need You)" is a masterpiece and another gem, "You Better Know It," was another hit for Jackie and the song was even featured in the film "Go Johnny Go.

I bought the CD Hallmark 'Original Recording' of Jackie Wilson's Lonely Teardrops album. From the first it sounded wrong - Lonely Teardrops seemed to be slowed down. But as it went on, there were skips and short periods of distorted sounds in several songs, and pops and cracks of vinyl surface were audible between the songs. In short - a poorly done conversion from vinyl source.
