This review is from: You Won't Forget Me: The Complete Liberty Singles Volume 1 (Audio CD)
If you're looking for 1 Jackie DeShannon disc to buy, then this is it! You'll be surprised if you've never heard her. This gives you a very good idea of her pop/rock girl group sound from before 1965. The one track I fell in love with was "I won't turn you down", which I preceded to listen to some 20 times in a row. Ace had room for more songs on here, and I wish they would have put them on. They said earlier tracks were from a different time period, but one wouldn't mind having them on here- being there was room. Packaging is great as usual, nice 20 page booklet. If you like this, which I'm sure you will if you're into this pop/rock sound, then check these discs out by Jackie also: 1) Breakin'it up on the Beatles tour!; 2) Don't turn your back on me/This is Jackie DeShannon; 3)Are you ready for this?; 4) and Jackie De Shannon- The Definitive Collection. The last being the best over all greatest hits package I've heard, you won't be disappointed. Jackie had a great feel for her early material, and she wrote a lot of her own songs at a time when women just didn't do that kind of thing. Definitely gave her a leg up, and what a nice pair she has on this cover!
