Talk That Talk (Jackie Wilson song) 1959 song performed by Jackie Wilson

Talk That Talk is a 1959 hit song written for Jackie Wilson by Sid Wyche. It was released, with Only You, Only Me as the B-side, on Brunswick Records in the US and in the UK on Coral Records. It was on the release of "Talk That Talk" that Wilson met his second wife Lynn. "Talk That Talk" reached #3 in R&B and #34 in pop charts. Wilson recorded the song with chorus and orchestra under Decca Records' veteran arranger Dick Jacobs. Jacobs was criticised for the "cleaned up" sound of using white backing singers, but defended the decision as driven by the limited number of formally trained backing singers available at the time.
