Got the first 45 by Jackie Ross here, on Sam Cooke's SAR records label from 1962 ('Jacki' on the label). Jackie went on to have a hit with Selfish One on Chess after this and released some other great 45's but never saw too much success. I think 'Hard Times' is the best side, a slow, cool number written by Jackie. 'Hold Me' is more of a popcorn/bubblegum number but nice enough (the sort of tune Sam Cooke turned out for fun).
