Jackie DeShannon - The Definitive Collection


I must have listened to the first half of this comp a hundred times. It's full of super-catchy pop-rock with great instrumental and vocal tone. The second half, however, leaves something to be desired, but I included it anyway for posterity's sake. Things fall apart after "What the World Needs Now", but before that it's pretty much perfection. On here you get "Buddy", a rockabillyish homage to Buddy Holly, the ORIGINAL (and superior) versions of "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk in the Room" (both covered and made more famous by the Searchers), Jackie's version of the Irma Thomas song (that Jackie wrote) "Breakaway", as well as "Dream Boy" (co-written by Jackie and Jimmy Page), which is on that girl groups compilation). I don't have TOO much to say because I'm sick and out of it, but I was fairly obsessed for a moment there. Check it out!
