The Fame Sessions (180 Gram Vinyl) Import
Special Offers and Product Promotions
It comprises ten tracks featured on our George Jackson Fame CDs plus two previously unreleased tracks. Backed by either the classic Fame rhythm section of David Hood, Roger Hawkins, Barry Beckett and Jimmy Johnson or by the Fame Gang, the tracks selected show George working through some of his most famous compositions as well as some lesser-known gems.
We open with his version of I'm Just A Prisoner (made famous by Candi Staton), while further numbers were championed by Wilson Pickett, Clarence Carter and Spencer Wiggins. All are given a distinctive reading by their composer. Others such as the astounding I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew languished in the vaults, unrecorded by anyone, a victim of Jackson's extraordinary work-rate. Two new songs Add A Little Sunshine and That From The Heart keep the quality high.
Released with the full co-operation of Fame Records, the music is from the original source tapes, and comes housed in a sleeve that features photos from the Fame archive.
