J. Ridley also adds:
On P-Vine (Japanese) LP 343 "Early Memphis Sounds" there were 2 tracks "I don't understand" and "Old friend". Thanks also to Nobby for his several contributions.
The most recent recording I know of by George Jackson as a vocalist was a CD issued in 1993 in the UK on Garry Cape's Black Grape label. Ten tracks, recorded in 1991 in Pearl, Mississippi. George Jackson is still in great vocal form, but the backing tracks lack tightness, and none of the tracks is on par with the best of his late 60's / early 70's recordings. Still wonderful to see that George Jackson still recording in the 90's, and let's hope we get more from him as a performer.
George Jackson has been of course very successful as a writer since the late 60's, and to this day he is a staff writer for Malaco reccords. Recently he wrote two of the tracks in Johnnie Taylor's magnificent 1996 album on Malaco, "Good Love!".
In fact George Henry Jackson has about 450 entries on the BMI catalogue.
P.S. George Jackosn - That lonely night / When I stop loving you * Double R is a record that comes up in Northern Soul circles - apparently no relation to our George Jackson.
Karl Mitchell wrote in: Don't Use Me / Don't Have Time To Love You - Mercury 72782 - I think it's the same guy . Controversy! Others think it isn't. Well, The soul of the net will eventually find this out for you.
GJ appears on many compilations of Hi recordings, but on most of
them only his one chart record for Hi, Aretha, sing one for me appears.
His best representation on CD is on The Hi Records Collection Vol. 2, (UK
release HIUKCD 136, in 1992), where 5 of his best recordings are included:
I'm gonna wait, So good to me, Aretha, Let them know you care, Patricia
- both volumes of this series are strongly recommended.
