Liner Note Author: Joe Marchese.
The 2015 Real Gone Music anthology All the Love: The Lost Atlantic Recordings brings together all of singer/songwriter Jackie DeShannon's 1973 recordings for Atlantic Records. Best known for such hits as "What the World Needs Now" and "Put a Little Love in Your Heart," DeShannon was an adept performer whose career bridged the gap between the fun-loving pop of the '50s, the socially aware folk of the '60s, and the reflective country and soul of the '70s. These cuts are recordings DeShannon made on the heels of her 1972 Atlantic debut, Jackie. Produced by Tom Dowd, the cuts have remained largely unreleased. Here, we get all of her 1973 sessions with Dowd, including four rarely heard compositions DeShannon wrote with Van Morrison. ~ Matt Collar
