ANY OTHER WAY

THE FIRST ARTIST-APPROVED COLLECTION OF JACKIE SHANE’S WORK,
IS OUT 20 OCTOBER ON NUMERO GROUP

“Jackie Shane is a transgender, saxes-lined-up soul singer who released a handful of funky, treasured seven-inches […] This gatefold reissue is the first official compilation of the septuagenarian’s output and yet another reason to trust the crate-digging Numero Group label.” — New York Magazine
“Fifty-five years later, it still sounds utterly triumphant, a fitting anthem by an artist who had no shortage of confidence.” — Pitchfork, on “Any Other Way”

“Jackie Shane is a genuine revelation, a classic soul singer very few have heard of, she languished in obscurity for far too long but hopefully Any Other Way (5*s Numero Group) a beautifully put together anthology – the first artist-approved collection – will put pay to that.” Record Collector

 

Jackie Shane’s last 45, “Cruel Cruel World” — taken from Numero Group’s forthcoming collection of Jackie’s work, Any Other Way (out October 20th) — was originally the flip to “New Way Of Lovin”, first released on the Paragon label in 1969. After a decade working with other producers and songwriters, both tracks are entirely by Jackie herself, revealing in the 11th hour her unknown and remarkable skills as a songwriter. This record is Jackie’s rarest and most sought after, and has special resonance to her.

Any Other Way, first artist-approved collection of Jackie’s work, collects all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern, including three previously-unreleased tracks. Recognized by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie is a star without parallel — a pioneer of transgender rights born in a male body, living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable.
