With MEL014, Melodies International is extremely proud to bring you one more You're A Melody classic and one of the most beautiful soul records we'll have reissued as of yet: Jack Jacobs - I Believe It's Alright. Jack Jacobs grew up in Philadelphia and started out his singing career with an acapella doo-wop singing group before becoming lead singer in some Philly R&B bands. After a while he decided to take up the keyboard so he got a full sized Hammond B-3 organ, which he used to lug back and forth to gigs from his 3rd floor apartment. Jack is remembered by friends and family as an incredibly talented musician and one of the most soulful vocalists they've ever known. Childhood friend and jazz guitar great Pat Martino recalls: "I've had a chance to work with some seriously heavy duty singers, such as Ray Charles. He (i.e. Jack) was so spontaneously prolific; he was a poet. I can play some things for you right now and you would be shocked to find out he had no idea what he was about to sing. The lyrics were absolutely phenomenal, and they were extremely spiritual in context in terms of the message he was talking about. They were Biblical lyrics; absolutely overwhelming - just incredible". After Jack moved to Atlantic City in the 1970s, he wrote and recorded "I Believe It's Alright", initially released on Libra, a small local New Jersey music label. The record barely got any exposure at the time despite how good it was. It channels honest, raw soul energy in it's purest form - a truly uplifting song! Fully licensed and remastered, MEL014 is presented in it's original promo 7" vinyl format with the extended version on the flip and digitally - accompanied by a 16 page Melozine produced by Mafalda Meireles and Julia Rodionova
