Four Jacks And A Jill - Master Jack mp3 album

Four Jacks and a Jill is a South African folk rock ensemble. They originally formed in 1964 without a "Jill" under the name "The Nevadas". Subsequently, they became the first group in South Africa to wear their hair long and they changed their name to "The Zombies" (different from the well-known British group). Later they added lead singer Glenys Lynne and changed the group's name to "Four Jacks and A Jill".

Master Jack" is a song written by David Marks and performed by Four Jacks and a Jill. It reached in South Africa, on the US adult contemporary chart, and on both the Billboard chart and in Australia in 1968. The song was also released in the United Kingdom as a single, but it did not chart. The song was featured on their 1968 album, Master Jack. The song was produced by Ray Walter. Trini Lopez released a version of the song as a single in 1968.

Four Jacks And A Jill. It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack You taught me all I know and I'll never look back It's a very strange world and I thank you, Master Jack. You took a colored ribbon from out of the sky And taught me how to use it as the years went by To tie up all your problems and make them look neat And then to sell them to the people in the street. Master Jack was written my David Marks when he was working in the gold mines of Johannesburg. It describes the role of the Master Jack who was responsible for the achievement of the production during a mining shift. David Marks said that he wrote the song (he told me in a conversation) during the death hour which is just before dawn when they have a break.

Four Jacks and a Jill were South Africa's entry into the late-'60s folk-rock scene, and their American debut contains three international hits: "Timothy," "Master Jack," and "Mister Nico. Timothy" wasn't even released in the . when it became the group's first international hit in 1967, but the enigmatic folk-rock gem "Master Jack" - written, vaguely, from the standpoint of a miner addressing his boss - gave the group a Top 20 hit in the States and became the song most closely associated with the group. Although the harmony-laden folk-rock is the most appealing of several styles they attempt on Master Jack, their first American album, there is also a little Africana ("Hamba Liliwam") and outright rock ("Penny Paper").
