Virtually all of the revisited Jackie DeShannon classics featured on this package are like mile markers on pops journey through the decades. When You Walk In The Room written by Jackie, and Needles And Pins written for Jackie by Jack Nitzsche and Sonny Bono, represent her early 1960s work. Jackie achieved a top ten hit in 1965 with her exquisitely soulful rendition of Burt Bacharach and Hal David s What The World Needs Now Is Love. The recording which earned three Grammy nominations, was a recent induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Jackie firmly established herself with a song of her own with Put A Little Love In Your Heart, bringing her another Best Contemporary Female Vocal Grammy nomination. Her work with Donna Weiss took DeShannon into the 80s with Bette Davis Eyes breaking Kim Carnes as a major artist of that decade and earned Jackie the 1982 Grammy Award for Song of the Year.
On this collection of revisited favorites, nothing but an acoustic guitar and bass- with splashes of strings and an electric guitar or two- are needed whenever a vocalist this expressive is involved.
