Mr. Excitement!

The energetic Jackie Wilson burst onto the scene with the single Reet Petite in 1957 and spent the next couple of decades touring and recording as if his life depended on it.

Releasing an impressive 26 studio albums between 1958 and 1976, with my favourite album title of all time in 1963: Jackie Wilson Sings the World’s Greatest Melodies.

He also released 10 compilation albums and over 70 singles during this time. Three tunes stand out in particular: Reet Petite, (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher, and I Get The Sweetest Feeling.

Most of all, Jackie was known for his showmanship, and for being one of the main artists that transformed blues into soul.
