Jackie Wilson – Do Your Thing -1968 @320

Jackie Wilson – Do Your Thing
Brunswick Records, 1968
Mp3 @ 320

A somewhat rare recording from one of the kings of real soul music, the great Jackie Wilson!

Jackie’s career had faltered just a bit in the 1960’s; His voice and performance style were still amazing, but he’d had some trouble weathering changing trends in pop music.

This 1968 LP came the year following a resurgence with his great hit single ‘Higher and Higher‘, which was essentially his last career highpoint.

With a great sound crafted by influential producer Carl Davis and Eugene Record (of The Chi-Lites), this is a good album overall, though perhaps a tad ‘schizophonic’ with respect to song choices – mixing semi-current Rock/pop hits (Eleanor Rigby, Light my Fire, etc) with splashy ‘big room’ showpieces.
