Chuck Jackson

He's relatively forgotten today, and his brand of uptown soul is dismissed by the relatively vocal clique of critics who prefer their soul deep and down-home. But Chuck Jackson was a regular visitor to the R&B charts (and an occasional one to the pop listings) in the early '60s with such early pop-soul concoctions as "I Don't Want to Cry," "Any Day Now," and "Tell Him I'm Not Home." His records were very much of a piece with New York pop/rock-soul production, with cheeky brass, sweeping strings, and female backup vocalists. Those production trills make his work sound dated to some listeners, and his hoarse, emotional vocals weren't as subtle or commanding as peers like Ben E. King or Wilson Pickett. On its own terms, though, his best work is quite good, whether you prefer pop to soul or vice versa.

Jackson sang with one of the best doo wop groups, the Dell-Vikings, for a while in the late '50s (although he doesn't appear on their hit singles). Spotted by Scepter Records while performing with Jackie Wilson's Revue, he started recording for the label in 1961. As was the case with labelmates Dionne Warwick and the Shirelles, Jackson's early-'60s arrangements blended pop, R&B, and New York-session professionalism. Like Warwick, Jackson was one of the first singers to successfully record Bacharach-David material; one of his best singles, "I Keep Forgettin'" (1962), was written and produced by Leiber-Stoller. Jackson had some success with some duets with Maxine Brown in the mid-'60s, but he left Wand in 1967 for Motown, at the urging of Smokey Robinson. Jackson was (perhaps understandably) lost in the shuffle during his four years at Motown, and he's barely been heard from since, although he remains a favorite on England's "Northern soul" scene. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Of note, James Brown was a huge fan of Chuck Jackson.

Relatively forgotten? Anyone old enough to remember "Any Day Now" would not likely forget Chuck Jackson. I heard him sing this song just last year. His baritone voice is as strong today as it ever was!
love reclling Any Day Now as a teenager
Of course "Any Day Now" and "I Don't Want To Cry" were his biggest hits, but if you want to hear a really, really cool song look up "Tell Him I'm Not Home".
When Chuck Jackson left the Del-Vikings he made his best songs ever - he really is too cool!
One of the best.
chuck jackson sings sweet music.

Chuck Jackson is one of the best vocalist of all times. He needs to record again with that gifted voice.

I know Mr. Jackson (Chuck) is still alive. I believe he is a neighbor of Millie Jackson in Tennessee (?)
