"CaseQuarter is a brand new label whose purpose is to document and make available all manner of obscure, eccentric and original sacred and spiritual music of the American South -- contemporary and historical; both commercial and informal recording. This is the first release, after the better part of twenty-five years; the legendary early 1970s New Orleans Booker label recordings of the Baton Rouge gospel guitarist have finally been collected on CD. Ever since Reverend Jackson's Booker singles were discovered by gospel collectors in the 1970s and began to trickle out to a wider audience, his primal, funky guitar riffs have astounded listeners. Raw and unadorned and at other times spare and lyrical, his Booker and Jackson label recordings are infused with sanctified energy and singing. Further to his own singles are records by Brother Ike Gordon, Sister Frances Jackson, and Caravan No. 2 of Zachary, which feature Reverend Jackson as accompanist."
