Although Chuck Jackson had eight solo LPs on Wand, there has never been a greatest hits compilation derived from all of that fine label's recordings, until now. First known to the original mods as a singer of superb ballads such as 'Any Day Now' and 'Tell Him I'm Not Home', he attracted a loyal following and further releases such as 'I Keep Forgetting', 'Beg Me' and 'Hand It Over' demonstrated the depth of his and Wand's talents on uptempo tracks. Somewhere in between rhythmically were highlights such as 'Two Stupid Feet', an album-only track, and Jackson's Wand debut that first made his name in the USA, 'I Don't Want To Cry'. By the mid-60s it was back to ballads as a stunning reading of the Skyliners' 'Since I Don't Have You' charted, followed closely by Goffin and King's 'I Need You'. These two sold well so it is surprising that the superb version of the Van McCoy song 'I Don't Want To See You Cry' was never released. Vee-Jay released Jerry Butler's version on 45 in 1965, but Jackson's rendition tops even that.
