ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NOTE: On the vinyl LP edition song LIVE LOVE AND LIKE IT is replaced with I'M AFRAID TO LOVE YOU.

It's been a long time coming, but now it's here! The first new Jack Scott studio album in over 50 years consists of twelve country and rock 'n' roll songs carefully selected by Jack himself and the Bluelight Records production team.

When Jack Scott first appeared on the rock 'n' roll scene in the late 1950's he immediately demonstrated a highly individual and powerful style. His first recordings with a snarling rockabilly attitude in 1957 exhibited a profound country rock synthesis and soon after he hit the charts with the tremendous ballad "My True Love".

Jack Scott's principal pop success came with strong ballads like "What In the World's Come Over You" and "Burning Bridges" which were massive hits on both sides of the Atlantic in 1960. It was his ballads that marked Jack Scott’s unique contribution to rock 'n' roll. They were the slowest, heaviest and gutsiest of the era.

Born Giovanni Scafone on January 24th 1936 in Windsor, Ontario, Jack Scott signed a recording deal at the age of 21 in 1957 and over the next five years he scored 19 hit singles. Double A-sided single from 1958, "My True Love" / "Leroy", became his first million-seller, with one song peaking at number three and the other at number 11 on the Billboard pop chart. It also became a Top Ten hit in England.

The biggest follow-ups were "Goodbye Baby" (1959 #8), "What In the World's Come Over You" (1960 #5) and "Burning Bridges" (1960 #3). One of the most well-known songs of Jack Scott, “The Way I Walk”, was a minor hit for Jack himself but it became a punk rock anthem and was covered in the 1970’s by Robert Gordon and in the 1980’s by The Cramps and was featured in the movie Natural Born Killers.

Jack Scott sounded tough, like someone you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. Still today Jack Scott continues to vacillate between a cowboy crooner and a rough-edged rocker and he occasionally appears on the rockabilly circuit, still looking and sounding like a man you seriously don't want to mess with.
