We released the best of Chuck Jackson’s Wand recordings on “Good Things” (CDKEND 935) in 1990. Since then Kent has issued all of Chuck’s eight Wand LPs on four CDs. A review of the tapes from our Wand trawl of the mid-80s, along with recent tape discoveries, means we can issue a final CD of previously unreleased tracks and rarities. 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 ‘Anymore’, a duet with Dionne Warwick, a teaming never before heard. We have also included ‘Little By Little’, a great uptempo dancer only previously released on the 1987 Kent LP “A Powerful Soul” which is long deleted and ‘The Silencer’, a secret agent-styled film theme tune which was only released on compilation CDs in the 90s. There is also a demo of ‘In Between Tears’, previously only available on a Kent LP. There are two very good B-sides; ‘For All Time’ and ‘And That’s Saying A Lot’ which have never before appeared on CD. Some collectors may know ‘And That’s Saying A Lot’ from Christine Perfect’s cover on her first solo LP. Additionally ‘Big New York’ is included as it has only appeared on the “In The Naked City” CD, which is now deleted. A recent flurry of Internet activity saw Chuck fans amazed that the very popular ‘Hand It Over’ was issued in two quite different vocal versions over two different Wand release numbers. We include the version that has eluded a CD release up until now. A later recording of ‘Forget About Me’, which was first featured on “Good Things”, is also included with a very different vocal and a small mistake corrected from the initial attempt. Although the rest of Chuck’s material was issued on the two-LPson- 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)’. ‘Another Day’ and ‘King Of The Mountain’ also get the mono treatment, and sit well with a third unissued Bob Crewe and the 4 Seasons-related track ‘Through My Tears’ and provide an interesting side-story.
