Keep Me In Mind completes our reissue program of the singles recorded by singer-songwriter Jackie DeShannon for the Liberty and affiliated Imperial labels. Jackie spent ten mostly glorious years at the company, recording everything from folk-rock and R&B to Bacharach sophistication and beyond.
The first two volumes of our series covered the years 1960 to 1967 and comprised 100% mono single mixes. This third volume takes us into the stereo era. Tracks 1 to 18 are mono, the rest are stereo, mirroring how the singles were released at the time. The set commences with the endearingly kooky Changin' My Mind and concludes with a previously unissued edit of Jackie's reading of Leonard Cohen's Bird On The Wire, a cancelled single from 1970.
In between are included such self-penned gems as I Keep Wanting You, Nicole, Laurel Canyon, Mediterranean Sky and Jackie's signature song Put A Little Love In Your Heart, plus her versions of the Band's The Weight, Bobby Womack's What Is This and John Sebastian's Didn't Want To Have To Do It, another cancelled single.
