Victim Of A Foolish Heart / Getting The Bills (But No Merchandise) George Jackson

Catalogue Id:

Welcome to the Ace Records Singles Club.

We aim to release web exclusive vinyl 45s on a regular basis, featuring previously unreleased or rare material on an authentic-looking label. Each 45 will tie in with one of our CD releases for the month in question, and will showcase repertoire from each and every genre of the music that appears across the Ace family of labels.

For our opening salvo we have an absolute gem, from southern soul great George Jackson.

George was in-house songwriter for Rick Hall’s Fame Records in Muscle Shoals from1968 well into the1970s, and wrote hits for, amongst others, Candi Staton, Wilson Pickett and Clarence Carter. He was also a great performer, but his demand as a songwriter kept his recording career very much in the background. In the last year we have found a host of wonderful recordings by George in the Fame vaults and to tie in with the second volume of his Fame Recordings “Let The Best Man Win”, we are coupling two of the tracks on a 7 inch single.

The A-side is the wonderful ‘Victim of A Foolish Heart’ which we think was recorded as a follow-up to George’s two released Fame singles, but shelved in favour of Bettye Swann’s version which was released on Atlantic. It was later covered by Joss Stone on her multi million-selling “Soul Sessions” album. The flip is George’s take on ‘Getting The Bills (But No Merchandise)’ which has a better-known version by Clarence Carter.


All Singles Club releases are limited editions – and once they’re gone, they’re gone - so order your copy now.
