Hot Summer Night – Soul Party

The Jackson Sisters (not to be confused with Jackson sisters of the Jackson Five) were an American soul and disco family group in the 1970s.The Jackson Sisters comprised of Jacqueline Jackson-Rencher, Lyn Jackson, Pat Jackson, Rae Jackson and Gennie Jackson.

Based in Detroit, but originally out of Compton in California, The Jackson Sisters recorded material for the Tiger Lily Records label, with some modest success in the 1970’s, however the group really came into their own nearly a decade later following the emergence of the ‘rare groove’ scene in the U.K.

Bobby Taylor, produced and co-wrote the ‘rare groove’ anthem, ‘I Believe In Miracles’, in 1976.  The track reached #72 in the UK Singles Chart in June 1987. The original version was released in 1973 and performed by Mark Capanni for Jazzman record. ‘Miracles’ was originally a b-side on the Mums label, with the A-Side being ‘Boy You’re Dynamite’.

The song was later to be re-released in the U.K. on the Urban imprint.

The parent album, scheduled to be released on Tiger Lily Records in 1976, was withdrawn (a few promo copies went into circulation and they now retail for around £500, about a thousand dollars).
