Description


Description

One the most glorious 70s soul double siders ever committed to vinyl!

Two Memphis crossover strollers from an extremely experienced soul-man who wrote, produced ad sang a wealth of superior soul!

Cutting his teeth as an 18 year old hopeful on Ike Turner's label "Prann" writing two tunes that failed to sell. But his feet were on the ladder, George slowly but surely built his portfolio of worthy


American songwriter and producer.
Born March 12, 1945 in Mississippi, he started recording for Ike Turner's label in the early 1960s. He toured the whole 1960s writing songs and recording, until he ended up to Muscle Shoals to work as a writer and producer at Fame Recording Studios. There he wrote one of his best known songs, "One Bad Apple". Performed by The Osmonds, the song became a number one hit in 1971 and a million selling pop classic. He also wrote or co-wrote other hit songs to artists like Candi Staton and Clarence Carter, as well as James Brown's "It's Too Funky In Here", Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock And Roll", Wilson Pickett's "A Man and A Half" and others.
Jackson died on April 14, 2013, at his home in Ridgeland, Mississippi, from cancer at the age of 68.
