Greatest Hits: My Big Ten Inch

by Bull Moose Jackson
 
Jackson's run of hits for the King label came between 1947-1952. He was one of a handful of top-notch jump blues bandleaders who helped plant the roots of rock & roll, laying down some nicely salacious tracks and fiery saxophone solos along the way. This King Greatest Hits package, though, provides only a very small taste of Jackson's varied and exciting output

Overview

Jackson's run of hits for the King label came between 1947-1952. He was one of a handful of top-notch jump blues bandleaders who helped plant the roots of rock & roll, laying down some nicely salacious tracks and fiery saxophone solos along the way. This King Greatest Hits package, though, provides only a very small taste of Jackson's varied and exciting output -- Greatest Travesty is really more apropos. In lieu of all Jackson's hits and a healthy dose of some other standout cuts, the label has included only four chart toppers (the title track, "Sneaky Pete," "I Can't Go on Without You," "Why Don't You Haul Off and Love Me") and a few filler cuts. Fans in search of a good overview of Jackson's career should check out Charly's 22-track Badman Jackson That's Me collection and steer clear of this flimsy release.
