Jackie Wilson - Soul Galore
Considering how much knowledge the readers of this blog possess, I think I can safely choose to present no biographical data about the great Jackie Wilson. (I recommend that you buy a copy of the first issue of "There's That Beat!" magazine - see the links section - for a great feature on him that provides a great biography and discography.) So, with no further ado, here's today's selection. "Soul Galore" is a Northern Soul killer that Wilson recorded a year or two before Carl Davis took over the prodcution reins to take Jackie back to the top of the R&B charts with "Whispers" and "Higher and Higher." Wilson's vocals are fantastic as always, and the surging orchestral track and background singing really makes this one captivating.
