George Jackson - Let The Best Man Win - Fame Recordings Vol.2 -
[Kent cdkend]
 

This second volume looks at the recordings George Jackson made at Fame Studios when he was chief songwriter between 1967 and the mid 70s. The first volume was met with real enthusiasm by fans of Southern soul and this will be no different as the standard is just as high. Working alongside classic Fame house bands: Hood, Hawkins, Johnson and Beckett and the Fame Gang these recordings are real quality. George Jackson is one of the great writers of Southern soul and this volume includes the original versions of classic hits written for, among others, Wilson Pickett ( Mini Skirt Minnie and more), Candi Staton ( I'm Just A Prisoner ), Bettye Swann ( Victim Of A Foolish Heart , later a hit for Joss Stone). On hearing George Jackson's demos for him, Wilson Pickett told Atlantic Records Jerry Wexler to sign Jackson as an artist as he was a star in the waiting. Such was the depth and quality of his work that there are songs that have not been issued until now. I Lived Through A Losing Battle is a song that plunders the depths of despair; there is the simply stunning I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew and the uptempo Soul Lovin and It's Not Safe To Mess On Me . There is no doubt that several of these will now be classed as Southern soul classics. Kent were granted a rare interview with George Jackson while researching the CDs. He reflects on his time at Fame; the artists he worked with and why he didn't become a successful recording artist. It is the finishing touch to another important Southern soul package.
