...this is Jackie getting a funky groove on at the back end of '68, just in time for the newly emerging singer/writer phenomenon (the fact that she had been such an artiste since the late '50s didn't matter-this was new territory)...this is Jackie 'grown up', no longer being seen as an irrelevant purveyor of teenpop / MOR songstress, Jackie reaching for a new audience that might be waiting for a new sound...being on an old fashion label (liberty) didn't help her get this audience, they had no idea how to market this new style so it all came to nothing (she had a minor hit with the bands big deal tune(the weight) but otherwise...)...with the brilliant illuminating vision of hindsight she should have gone to Warner Bros who were getting some kind market space with Randy Newman/van dyke parks (though they couldn't shift any of parks wax they still wanted him on the label, they tried their utmost with him), but all this don't take away the stone cold fact this is some barefoot funky stew that needs to be heard by all heads that dig the strong and mellow vibes that were happening roundabout this time, the 'get back' vibe that was getting stronger since the tapes from big pink had started getting widely circulated...a top spin and goes well with the Carole king joint (the City) that was out the same time...
