Jackie Ross' story is so similar to so many other soul heroes. Born in St Louis, she began singing in church at a young age and became a local radio star (her parents had a radio show). After her father passed away in 1954, the family moved to Chicago where young Jackie (born in 1946) began her recording career in 1962 and also became part of Syl Johnson's soul revue.

This infectious record is probably my favorite side of hers; one of those tracks that will just hook you immediately and make you wanna move. More Chicago soul genius from Chess records!

from 1965...
