This second volume looks at the recordings George Jackson made at Fame Studios when he was chief songwriter between 1967 and the mid 70s. The first volume was met with real enthusiasm by fans of Southern soul and this will be no different as the standard is just as high. Working alongside classic Fame house bands: Hood, Hawkins, Johnson and Beckett and the Fame Gang these recordings are real quality. Such was the depth and quality of his work that there are songs that have not been issued until now. 'I Lived Through A Losing Battle' is a song that plunders the depths of despair; there is the simply stunning 'I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew' and the uptempo 'Soul Lovin' and 'It's Not Safe To Mess On Me'. We were granted a rare interview with George Jackson while researching the CDs. He reflects on his time at Fame; the artists he worked with and why he didn't become a successful recording artist. It is the finishing touch to another important Southern soul package. 24 tracks.
