(November 26, 2017): Jackie Wilson – Reet Petite (The Finest Girl You Ever Want To Meet)

From the 1958 album, He’s So Fine.  This is one of five tunes co-written by Berry Gordie to appear on this LP.  The title is a throw to Louis Jordan and his 1948 single from the film “Reet, Petite, and Gone”. Wilsons powerful pipes here were enough to carry the tune to a UK number 1 when it was reissued in 1986.
