5.0 out of 5 stars Way Before HER TIme September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jackie Deshannon was writing and producing back in the 60's when girl singers were just suppose to sing. As the 70's dawned Jackie took keep on trying to find her place in the market and she sure hit the mark with "Jackie". Her brillant lp never really took off, but the music is still great. When I was a kid "Would you like to learn to dance" was my favorite songs and it was great to hear it again. The "PLUS" includes several singles on atlantic that had never made a cd or an Lp till now. Keep the Jackie music coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice mix of covers and originals March 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This isn't the ultimate collection of Jackie's music (as the title might suggest) but it is nevertheless a magnificent showcase for her talents.

All the sixties classics that Jackie is famous for, whether as singer or as songwriter including What the world needs now (a Bacharach-David song that was a British and American top ten hit for Jackie) and Put a little love in your heart (Jackie's biggest American hit, which she wrote). Many people think that Jackie wrote Needles and pins - she didn't, but it was her version that the Searchers covered. It became a major international hit for them and this encouraged them to record some of Jackie's own songs, most notably When you walk in the room.

Aside from the famous songs, this collection contains many excellent covers of other people's songs that demonstrate Jackie's brilliance and versatility. Apart from Needles and pins and What the world needs now, these include Don't let the sun catch you crying, It's all in the game, Summertime, You don't have to say you love me, Will you love me tomorrow and Call me.

Jackie has been poorly served by CD releases but things are slowly improving. This collection makes an ideal introduction to Jackie's music but will also be of interest to those who have some of her other CD compilations - some of the tracks here have not appeared on CD before.

4.0 out of 5 stars an incomplete collection of a huge talent August 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Jackie DeShannon is one of the biggest talents to ever hit rock & roll. Unfortunately, this CD seems to be the only collection still in print. While some of the songs are first-rate, others are not her best, and the timing is very skimpy. It's a fine place to start, but listener's would be better served by searching out The Definitive Collection, and her studio albums on vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful DeShannon Masterpiece~Bravo Jackie! September 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Jackie DeShannon started having a mesmerizing list of memorable chart hits in the great musical sixties such as highly memorable "You Won't Forget Me", barn-storming "When You Walk In The Room", hauntingly gorgeous "She Don't Understand Him (Like I Do)", timeless classic anthem "What The World Needs Now Is Love", soul-deep "The Weight", glorious epic "A Lifetime Of Loneliness", pathos filled "Come And Get Me", pleading passionate "I Can Make It With You", then finished out the decade with one of the greatest classic anthems of all time, self-penned "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" is the masterful timeless anthem of brotherhood having a life all its own, going on and on over the decades since but original version nails it big time. For reasons unknown when the masterful Memphis masterpiece "Jackie" was released, this brilliant collection received zero support from radio yet was praised for the great songs and incredible quality of performances, these sublime originals are sung with exquisite raw & passionate soulful vocal beauty that is matchless. "Jackie" was recorded in Memphis with that pure raw sound throughout in a brilliant collection of varied songs, production credits don't get better than legendary masters Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd & Arif Mardin with an inspired stellar group of legendary Memphis musicians. Opening strong with sublime John Prine "Paradise", this swampy rhythmic cooker goes to the core of this great song then comes gospel-edged "Heavy Burdens Me Down" taking it to church featuring a soulful DeShannon raw earthy vocal filled with passionate urgency.
