ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded in the mid-80s, THE LOST NASHVILLE SESSIONS is an eclectic collection of rock, soul, blues, pop and the eccentric—and heralds the one of the only known lead vocal performances of Trumpeter Wayne Jackson.
The concept for the album was hatched in 1984, when Jackson met producer/engineer Frank Green and told him he wanted the world to hear a different side of him—Wayne Jackson, the singer. Green agreed to co-produce the album and they began writing.
The first song they wrote was the funky, rocky “Sweet Medicine,” followed by a pensive, midtempo ballad entitled “Abandoned Heart,” which features Jackson’s soulful, heartfelt performance on lead vocals.
Green served as chief engineer, guitarist, keyboardist, and bassist on those first tracks, while Jackson focused on the horn arrangements and vocals.
A short time later, they were joined by Hoy “Bucky” Lindsey and Fred James. Together with Green and Jackson, they formed the principle core of Memphis Horns Band, and shared in the writing and recording of the remainder of the album. Lindsey added soulful, bluesy vocals and bass guitar, and James contributed a blues rock feel to the vocals along with an edgy electric guitar.
Jackson brought fellow Memphis Horns great Andrew Love in from Memphis to fill out the horn parts on some of the recordings, and several Nashville session players appear on others.
However, the album was never released. Jackson’s work shortly after, on Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking song “Sledgehammer” propelled The Memphis Horns back into the spotlight, and he didn’t look back.
As time moved on, the album was packed away and became a distant memory. Jackson and Love saw more hit recording sessions, world tours and awards. Andrew Love passed in 2012 due to complications of Alzheimer’s, and Wayne Jackson passed away in 2016, having had a truly magical ride.
Then one day in July of 2017, Jackson’s wife Amy received an unexpected email from Frank Green, saying that the lost album had been found.
Jackson once said, “I’m a singer, and before it’s all over, the world’s gonna know it.” THE LOST NASHVILLE SESSIONS at long last, fulfills that lifelong wish.
