NOTES:
7″ single by George Jackson featuring Aretha, Sing One For Me which was covered by Cat Power on the Jukebox (LYRICS) album and was also issued as a one track promo CD.

The official George Jackson MySpace Page has a blog entry regarding the Cat Power Recording: “The Village Voice in San Francisco called our very own George Jackson for an interview. They wanted to get his perspective on a cover of one of his most well-known songs. Chan Marshall, better known as “Cat Power,” covered George’s Hi Records hit, “Aretha, Sing One For Me.” When the single was originally released in 1972, it jumped to 1 on the Memphis charts and hit 38 on the Billboard charts.

Her album, “Jukebox,” was released January 21, 2008 and, according to Soundscan, has already sold 82,000 copies. It’s getting great reviews. We’ll post the article once it touches down. Her voice is so distinct and unique. She’s got an incredible band and the song definitely touches a chord.” – myspace.com/legendarygeorgejackson
