George Jackson - Find' Em, Fool 'Em And Forget 'Em (Fame 1457)

Find 'Em, Fool 'Em And Forget 'Em

This fantastic A side of our recent George Jackson post was just too good to pass up. Although it may become available on a CD soon, you can say you heard it here first. The co-writer on this one is none other than Rick Hall himself. I love the way George says "remember the four F's", even though there are only three listed in the title... Dig that crazy fuzzed out wah-wah guitar, baby!

Like I said on the other side, this is either one of the last sessions with the 'second' Fame rhythm section of Johnson, Beckett, Hawkins and Hood, or one of the first with Junior Lowe's Fame Gang.

It's all good!

I know this song very well, wasn't it a single for Candi Staton or Clarence Carter?

Hmmm... not that I know of. It's not listed in either of their discographies at soulful kinda music. Dobie Gray cut a song of the same name, but I don't think it's the same ne.

This track was cut by Bobbie Gentry on her Fancy LP, recorded at Fame Studios with the Fame Gang. Her version is superb and soulful as well.

That's a nice version (B.Gentry), but not the one. I think it's a case of I heard Jacksons' version when it came out and thought it was female vocal LOL. His voice does sound quite young on it then. - Thanks
