1980 was a great year for the Soul collector as EMI America signed two Soul greats to their stable. The mighty vocals of Wilson Pickett and Chuck Jackson enriched EMI's USA output..

This is the elusive STOCK copy the only way to own "Waiting In Vain" as a 45..

Long time New York associate Luther Dixon knows just what material to harness Chuck's thundering vocal to; This time thinking outside the box, presenting a Bob Marley song to Chuck but giving it a Soul dance production, decorated with honkin' horns and squealing girl choruses.. the result is stunning. Silky background cradles Chuck's booming vocal, punctuated with knifing trumpet blasts. You can't help but dance!!

Annoyingly frustrating as you pass though 100's of Promo copies in your lifetime diggin', it's so gratifying to unearth a mint stock copy.. cause this is one GREAT SONG born of a collaboration of Soul Greats!

Condition Report

Flawless unplayed until we lifted the double soundfile, cocooned in it's birth sleeve for 38 years.. condition could not be finer.
