5. King of the Mountain. Bob Crewe, Bob Gaudio.
We released the best of Chuck Jackson’s Wand recordings on Good Things (CDKEND 935) in 1990 and subsequently put out his eight Wand albums as four CD two-fers. A reassessment of the tapes from our Wand trawl of the mid-80s, along with more recent discoveries, means we are now able to issue a final CD of previously unreleased tracks and rarities. Some collectors may know ‘And That’s Saying A Lot’ from Christine Perfect’s cover on her first solo LP. ‘Big New York’, which appeared on our deleted In The Naked City CD, is also included. A recent flurry of internet activity saw Chuck’s fans amazed that the very popular ‘Hand It Over’ was issued in quite different vocal versions over two Wand singles. We include the one that has eluded CD release up to now.
A new release featuring Chuck Jackson output at Wand Records 1961-1966 Hits, alternates, favourites, previously unissued and new-to-CD Wand recordings. 1. Things Just Ain't Right 2. Little By Little 3. Hand It Over 4. Big New York 5. King of the Mountain 6. Another Day 7. Need to Belong 8. For All Time 9. If I Didn't Love You 10. The Same Old Story 11. Why Some People Don't Like Me 12.
Additionally, 'Big New York' is included as it has only appeared on the In The Naked City CD, which is now deleted. Although the rest of Chuck's material was issued on the two-LPs-on-one CD series, this was mainly in stereo and we have obtained mono versions of such great numbers as 'If I Didn't Love You', 'I've Got To Be Strong' and 'This Broken Heart (That You Gave Me)'
5. "King Of The Mountain".
We released the best of Chuck Jackson's Wand recordings on 'Good Things' (KEN 935) in 1990. Of the eight previously unheard songs debuting here, the highlights are the perky opener 'Things Just Ain't Right', a tremendous cover of the Curtis Mayfield-written 'Need To Belong', originally covered by Jerry Butler and.

Later in 1961 Chuck Jackson signed to Wand Records, which was an imprint of the New York label Scepter Records. Little did Chuck Jackson know that this would be his home for the next six years. During that period, Chuck Jackson released thirty singles and ten albums. Six of Chuck Jackson’s classic tracks feature on Big New York Soul: Wand Records 1961-1966. These six tracks are in mono, which will appeal to purists, and those who remember the tracks first time around. The earliest is The Same Old Story which was the B-side to the single (It Never Happens) In Real Life. It was released in March 1961 and gave Chuck Jackson a hit single. The Same Old Story features a hurt-filled, needy vocal and featured on the first of thirty singles Chuck Jackson released for Wand Records.
