Album Review

Charly's 1992 collection I Don't Want to Cry is one of the older Chuck Jackson compilations available, but it's still among the better best-ofs, gathering most of his definitive singles in its 16 tracks. Along with the title track, the album also features "Tell Him I'm Not Home," "I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)," "I'm Your Man," and "Hand It Over." This collection also includes several of Jackson's interpretations of Burt Bacharach's songs, including the classic "Any Day Now (My Wild Beautiful Bird)," as well as "I Wake Up Crying," "The Breaking Point," "They Don't Give Medals (To Yesterday's Heroes)," and "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself."

Varese's The Very Best of Chuck Jackson 1961-1967 may be the best Jackson retrospective, but this is still a worthwhile look back at his career.

His records were very much of a piece with New York pop/rock-soul production, with cheeky brass, sweeping strings,...
