JACKIE DE SHANNON
Jackie came to the UK in 1964 having written a hit song "When You Walk In The Room" for The Searchers.
Jackie then went into the studio to record a new single, hoping to revive her solo career which had begun in the late '50s.
Jimmy was called in to play guitar which surprised Jackie who said "I've never found a guitarist who could adapt so quickly to the sort of things I'm doing."
They soon built up a working and personal relationship which produced a single, an album and six co-written songs that were later recorded by numerous people including Marianne Faithfull.
