COOKIE JACKSON - FIND ME A LOVER


Not a whole lot is known about Los Angeles singer Cookie Jackson- she released some other records on a handful of labels (including another killer on the legendary Okeh label which will be a future daily 45), but never "broke through".

It's a shame that this record didn't fare better, it was certainly deserving! Taking a cue rhythmically from the immortal "Dancin' In The Streets", this song uniquely puts the female in the "alpha" position and the results are pretty damn sexy! The arrangement is a fantastic piece of Motown-dipped-in-west-coast-sunshine as well.

from 1965...

Cracking record Derek. I bought this for the flip-side, Love Brings Pain, but now prefer Find Me A Lover. Incredible vocal delivery from Cookie.

Stuck both sides up on Yoootoob almost the same time as your post here [without knowledge: now is the first time I've seen this!]

Wish I knew more about her as a person: every records a gem. I'll be posting more in time including Suffer,Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad, Do You Still Love Me and what is definately the best Try Love [Just One More Time!]

Great posts Derek. Thanks
