THE TONY JACKSON GROUP - 'You're My Number One'/'Let Me Know' (CBS 202039) Feb 1966
Back in March 2007 when one man and his dog used to visit my blog I wrote about Tony Jackson and included a rare photo from the 1966 Teenbeat annual. For those inept peeps who can't navigate my archive here's the link.
I can't understand how The Tony Jackson Group (previously called Tony Jackson with The Vibrations) failed to be household names in England. Sadly each release sold less and less leaving their record label no choice but to drop the band.
'You're My Number One' is a fantastic beat jangler loaded with pop hooks and melody. It harks back to Tony's days with The Searchers. They had the sound The Byrds 'borrowed' and called folk rock but that's another story. Next up will be some Searchers music! The flip 'Let Me Know' is also impressive jangle beat.
