INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS
This release contains Jackie Wilson’s sensational fifth LP, A Woman, A Lover, A Friend, originally issued by the Brunswick label in 1960, and long unavailable on vinyl. Produced by Dick Jacobs, it presents some of Wilson’s greatest studio recordings from the beginning of his career.
In addition to the original masterpiece, this collector’s LP contains 2 bonus tracks from the same period: the touching “The Greatest Hurt,” and the joyful and bombastic “Swanee.”
One of the pioneers and most important singers in rock & soul music, there’s no better proof of Jackie Wilson’s talents than these soulful, stylish, and consistently excellent recordings.
