Rev. Charlie Jackson played deep, raw, bluesy gospel. Born in 1932 just outside of McComb, Mississippi, he took up the electric guitar as a young man and started out playing the blues. Soon afterwards, he gave up the blues to serve the Lord. He developed a highly potent style and often played on church programs with the legendary Rev. Utah Smith. He subsequently recorded a string of incredible and legendary 45s for Booker Records out of New Orleans. After his classic recordings for Booker went out-of-print, Rev. Jackson took matters into his own hands and started his own private press label, Jackson Records, in the late \'70s. This disc collects almost all of his commercially-issued material, and it\'s some of my all-time favorite music. I\'ve listened to these songs hundreds of times and they still move me deeply. If this sort of thing sounds as if it would be to your taste, I can\'t recommend it highly enough.
