Sealed 1984 Compilation. 4 1/2 Stars All Music Guide. "A Marvelous Compilation Of Deon Jackson's Recordings. Labeled By Many A One-Hit Wonder, He Actually Enjoyed A Handful Of R&B Hits That Didn't Cross As Big As "Love Makes The World Go Round." There's Not One Weak Cut, Though One May Make A Case For "Come Back Home," Which Isn't So Much Weak As It's Awkward; The Upbeat Tune Is A Cross Between The Newbeats ("Bread & Butter"), And Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar." The Rest Are Heartwarmers. His Second Biggest Recording "Ooh Baby" Is Not The Smokey Robinson Song, But Deon Emulates Him On This And Many Other Cuts; The Song's A Smoldering Beauty That Makes You Tingle When Deon Slides Into The Chorus, Singing - Oooh, Oooh Baby, I Can't Do Without You, In A Quivering Falsetto. On The Lovely "I Need A Love Like Yours," If I Didn't Know It Was Deon, I Would Have Guess Smokey. Four Of The Tracks Were Previously Unissued, And Listening To The Bouncy, Joyful "Still Remember The Feeling," You'll Scratch Your Head Wondering Why Such An Obvious Hit Got Shelved. The Tunes Include Ballads, Mid-Tempo Numbers, And A Couple Of Straight R&B Drivers Like "You Said You Love Me," Where He Sounds Like His Namesake Chuck Jackson." Andrew Hamilton, AMG.
