Freddie Jackson: Freddie, the ladies' fantasy man

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 16 December 1986

IN THE 37 year history of Billboard magazine's black charts, only four artists have ever replaced themselves at the No. 1 spot — Johnny Otis (in 1950, with 'Double Crossing Blues' and 'Mistrustin' Blues'), Fats Domino (who actually landed three in a row in '56 and '57 with 'Blueberry Hill', 'Blue Monday' and 'I'm Walkin''), Dinah Washington (in July 1960 via her duet with Brook Benton, 'A Rockin' Good Way' followed by 'This Bitter Earth')... and now in 1986, Freddie Jackson, as his duet with Melba Moore, 'A Little Bit More', is succeeded by the initial single release from his new Just Like The First Time album, 'Tasty Love'.
