Mod-A-Day: J. J. Jackson

Soul man J. J. Jackson was primarily a song writer, penning tunes for soul jazzsters like Brother Jack McDuff and Jimmy Withrspoon, but also for The Pretty Things, The Shangri-Las and others. But, he managed to save one great song for himself, 1966's "But It's Alright", which he later rerecorded for even more chart success. Even though that's one of the great soul songs ever, in my opinion, I'm forgoing that one to bring you another, grittier, floorshakin bit of soul from Jackson. This is "I Dig Girls", complete with its cool Dragnet styled opening.
