This quintessential release includes Jackie Wilson’s sensational third LP, So Much, originally issued by the Brunswick label in 1959, and long unavailable on vinyl. Produced and arranged by Dick Jacobs, the album contain some of Wilson’s greatest studio recordings from the beginning of his career. It was cut to capture some of the memorable performances which had been exciting thousands of patrons of the R&B circuit. So Much opens with the rocking title track. The album also contains some outstanding tunes by the tandem of Berry Gordy and Billy Davis (also known as Tyran Carlo), such as “Thrill of Love”, and “I’ll Be Satisfied.” Other standouts include “Talk That Talk,” and “The Magic of Love.” Wilson is inspired on just about every track. There is no filler. He trills, he growls, he uses melisma, he skirts to the top of his range with his effortless ease and surprising dramatic effect.

In addition to the original masterpiece, this WaxTime collector’s edition contains 2 bonus tracks from the same period: a soulful mid-tempo, “Years From Now,” and the joyful “Am I the Man.” One of the pioneers and most important singers in rock & soul music, there’s no better proof of Jackie Wilson’s talents than these joyful, consistent, stylish and exuberant recordings.
