“Any Other Way”

Exclaim! - - FAB DISTRO -


Oc­to­ber 20 – Known by genre afi ciona­dos as one of the great­est singers and most riv­et­ing stage pres­ences in soul mu­sic, Jackie Shane has re­mained largely un­known out­side Toronto, where her ca­reer briefl y flow­ered in the 1960s. Be­yond her un­mis­tak­able gift of the gab, Shane is a pi­o­neer of trans­gen­der rights, born in a male body but un­abashedly liv­ing her en­tire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed un­think­able. Any Other Way is the first artist-ap­proved col­lec­tion of Ms. Shane’s work, col­lect­ing all six of her 45s and ev­ery high­light from the leg­endary 1967 live ses­sions at the Sapphire Tav­ern, in­clud­ing three mind blow­ing, pre­vi­ously un­re­leased tracks. Rob Bow­man’s 20,000 word es­say is Jackie’s first com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the public in nearly half a cen­tury, telling for the first time ever Jackie Shane’s story in her own words. This deluxe two al­bum set is co­pi­ously il­lus­trated with never-be­fore seen pic­tures from a ca­reer and a life un­like any other.
