Malaco has long been a favourite label of mine and I always felt that Jewel Bass was a huge talent that never realised her potential there. She was somehow was overtaken by the likes of Dorothy Moore, Denise Lasalle and Fern Kinney in the "pecking order" down in Jackson, MS. Jewel sang countless backing vocals for such luminaries as Johnnie Taylor, Tommy Tate, Jean Knight, Eddie Floyd, Bobby Bland and many others, and was featured in bands like the Carbon Copies, Natural High and Centaura.Both of these tracks which have lain undiscovered until now were recorded in 1981 in International Recording Studio, Pearl, Mississippi, and are two contrasting delights for soul fans."I Wanna know" is a mid-tempo shuffler with hints of a "Joy & Pain" riff in there and definitely one for the most discerning dancefloors. "Sweet High" is a so soulful string laden ballad on which Jewel's vocals are launched effortlessly into the heights on the back of an impressive production.Enjoy these two fine examples of real soul music exhumed from the vaults for your pleasure.
