Once again, it takes a German company to unearth and reissue a lost treasure of American music. When singer Wayne Jarrett was working at the peak of his powers, he was part of the stable of Wackie’s, the Bronx-based label owned by Lloyd “Bullwackies” Barnes. Wackie’s output has languished in obscurity for 20 years and now appears to be owned by a collective of German DJs and producers, which is gradually reissuing the label’s somewhat uneven but sometimes revelatory back catalog. This one is one of the best items.
