With an operatic four-octave range and charisma to spare, Jackie Wilson had more than 50 singles in many genres, including R&B, rock and roll, pop, and soul. The singer's athleticism and energy on stage even earned him the nicknames Mr. Excitement and The Black Elvis. 1960 Brunswick label release A Woman, A Lover, A Friend finds his signature repertoire of emotional ballads brought to new heights by the soaring Dick Jacobs Orchestra. This 180g vinyl reissue from Vinyl Lovers augments the original album with a pair of bonus tracks: "The Greatest Hurt" and "Swanee."
