Jackie Wilson has today’s almost forgotten track

It’s been too long since I featured Jackie Wilson and That is Why I’m doing it today…he had many super hits like Higher and Higher, Baby Workout, etcetera, but this one, simply because of the status of those mentioned is somewhat forgotten, but no less a great experience…even if his career had not ended “with his boots on” as the phrase goes, he’d still be a legend, simply because, in his time, he was one of the very very best and remains so today…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.

Yes he can, and as it was the prime manner of presentation on TV in the 60s I always thought of it as important, to the point that I remember clearly that Eric Burdon, who never sang a song the same way twice, was completely incapable of lip syncing…
