Jackie DeShannon: You Won't Forget Me - The Complete Liberty Singles Vol.1 (CD)

(ACE Records) 26 tracks 1960-65 with 20 page booklet

Nothing about Jackie DeShannon is predictable. Who could have foretold that the rockin’, stompin’ gal who toured with the Beatles in 1964 would have her first Top 10 hit with a silky Bacharach and David waltz? And who, in the 1990s, when Jackie was best known as the writer of occasional quality chart blockbusters for other artists, would have guessed that she would come back into the twenty-first century as a performer, not in the style of a seen-it-all, elder-stateswoman, but as a frenetic, bouncing, stomping rocker, with twice the energy of performers half her age? Accompanied by a four-piece rock band on her last London appearance, she even injected ‘What The World Needs Now’ with a dose of big beat.

This is the first in a series of three CDs that will make available every one of Jackie’s US Liberty and Imperial singles, exactly as they were originally released. That’s to say, if the single was issued in mono, you will hear it in mono. If it came out in stereo, you’ll get stereo. Most of Jackie’s albums are now available on CD, as are a number of very good anthologies, but many of these single mixes and EQs have never been available in digital format before. 

I can claim to be a fan of Jackie DeShannon since 1963 when I was first overwhelmed by her recording of ‘When You Walk In The Room’. This was covered here in the UK by the Searchers, and I made it my business to find her original of that group’s earlier hit, ‘Needles And Pins’. It blasted me out of my seat. Then I found Jackie’s first album, expecting more of the same – but it was a collection of well-chosen and impeccably-performed folk songs. How predictable was that? 

I was aware that Jackie had written and co-written some tremendous songs for the likes of Brenda Lee, the Fleetwoods and many others, but I didn’t know that her own recording career stretched back to 1956, and before ‘Needles And Pins’ she had released more than 20 singles and had hit the US charts with a country ballad, ‘Faded Love’. 

This collection concentrates on her early years at Liberty Records of Hollywood, innocent times when young artists, young arrangers and young producers put together exciting recordings of great songs by great young writers. The work of Jack Nitzsche, Carole King, Dick Glasser, Sharon Sheeley, Ray Charles and many others can be found on this album. This was a time of experimentation. If gospel style doesn’t storm the charts, try rock’n’roll; if that doesn’t work, go for a beat ballad with strings; if that fails to make it, go country. And although Jackie’s early Liberty singles didn’t storm the charts, they are without exception fun and of great quality, full of that energy that we can still see in bucket-loads today. 

And even this collection has its own element of unpredictability. As an unashamed DeShannon completist, I (of course) own all of the singles collected on this album, except the unreleased ‘That’s What Boys Are Made Of’. But I had been lucky enough to have in my possession a tape of the song. To tell the truth, I thought it was a bit rough and ready, a little chaotic and unfocussed, and I could empathise with Liberty’s decision to leave it in the can. But then, blow me down, the version that Ace has found to put on this album is completely different – nicely-produced and determinedly catchy. I might have guessed – anything with the name Jackie DeShannon on it is predictably first class.

recorded 1958, Nashville, Tennessee with Jackie De Shannon: vocal; other details unknown

 

Jackie Dee, of course, was Jackie DeShannon, and Buddy was a very early entry from the woman who later toured with the Beatles and went on to score hits with Needles And Pins, When You Walk In The Room, What The World Needs Now Is Love and Put A Little Love In Your Heart.

Later still, she co-wrote Bette Davis Eyes. All the above were some way in the distance when Buddy was cut in Nashville in 1958. Some see it as an oblique tribute to Buddy Holly, and Jackie herself seemed to reinforce that view in her 'Goldmine'interview (September 6, 1991): "It was a master [Liberty] picked up," said DeShannon. "'Buddy' (which was about Buddy Holly) was doing very well, but at just about that time 'The Witch Doctor' came out and all the pressing plants were busy on that one song. [Liberty] could only concentrate on one record, so we lost ours." The song was published by Buna Music, owned by Murray Nash (the former Mercury and Hickory A&R man who also produced Sue Thompson and the Sprouts), so it might very well have been Nash who produced the session and sold it to Liberty.

Jackie, or Sharon Myers to give her true name, was born in Hazel, Kentucky on August 21, 1944, and moved with her parents to the Chicago area when she was eleven. She recorded for Mar-Vel (as Sherry Lee), Gone and Liberty (as Jackie Dee), Fraternity (as the Cajuns with Jacquie Shannon), and on PJ, Sage, and Dot (as Jackie Shannon), and Edison International (as Jackie DeShannon). Her tour of the minor labels complete, she returned to Liberty in 1960.
