Album of the Day
Along with numerous 1960s hits as both a performer and a writer, Jackie DeShannon's storied career includes a fine 1972 album for Atlantic Records, JACKIE. The next year saw extensive sessions for a follow-up, but most of that work remained unheard for decades; ALL THE LOVE: THE LOST ATLANTIC RECORDINGS finally presents the material in its entirety. The music encompasses pop, soul, country and more with a mix of originals and covers including Dylan's “Don't Think Twice It's Alright” and Christine McVie's "Spare Me a Little of Your Love." While most of these 18 tracks were helmed by JACKIE producer Tom Dowd, the collection includes several collaborations with Van Morrison (who can be heard on backing vocals). Eclectic and masterfully crafted, THE LOST ATLANTIC RECORDINGS will delight both longtime fans and newcomers to Jackie DeShannon, and today we'll give it a spin to celebrate the singer-songwriter's birthday.
