A singer-songwriter, who was especially successful
in the late 80s, Freddie Jackson was brought up in Harlem, and
sang at the White Rock Baptist church while he was still a young
child. Later, he worked in a bank before joining the group LJE, along
with the singer, songwriter and producer, Paul Laurence.
In the early 80s, Jackson moved to California and
became lead singer with the R&B vocal/instrumental group Mystic
Merlin. He sang on their Full Moon, which featured the popular
soul/dance track "Mr. Magician." In 1984, he returned to the
east coast where he was spotted singing in a New York club by
Moore. After serving as a backing vocalist for Moore,
"Champagne" King and others, Jackson signed a solo contract
with Capitol Records, and issued "Rock Me Tonight" in 1985. Both the album, and its title track, "Rock Me Tonight
(For Old Times Sake)," which Jackson had written with Paul
Laurence, made the US Top 20, and also did well in the UK.
Subsequent singles from "Rock Me Tonight," such as "You Are My Lady" and "He'll Never Love You
(Like I Do)," proved to be ideally suited for the burgeoning soul
club scene on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1986, Jackson duetted
Moore on "A Little Bit More" from her album "A Lot
Of Love," and issued his own "Just Like The First
Time," which included three more successful dance sides, "Have You
Ever Loved Somebody," "Tasty Love" and "Jam
Jackson's subsequent albums did not fare so well. Nevertheless,
"Don't Let Love Slip Away" contained two UK hits, "Nice 'N' Slow" and "Crazy (For
Me)," and "Time For Love" was given extra interest by the inclusion of guest artists such as
Audrey Wheeler, Will Downing and Naje. "Here It Is" was the sole product of an abortive stay on RCA Records.
Freddie Jackson's songwriting activities, mostly in collaboration with Paul Laurence, resulted in numbers such
as "Trust Me" for Lilo Thomas, "Keepin' My Lover
Moore, and "Jam Song" for Howard
Johnson. After an extended lay-off, Jackson returned to the studio to
record 1999's "Life
