Sadly, little is known about the singer of the original of this wonderful ballad. The most detail that the sleevenotes of a CD collection of his work say is, "Jerry Jackson was an R&B-pop singer in New York in the early 1960s and his New York ska version of Shrimp Boats has become a cult club favorite in Europe," and that's just about as much as anyone seems to know! He recorded for two labels, Kapp and Columbia, between 1961 and 1964, but enjoyed little success. His original version of "It Hurts Me" was recorded for Kapp on 2 July 1963, but, although it was given a master number (K543), it was not released at the time and, indeed, had to wait until 1990 to finally appear on a Bear Family compilation. Charlie Daniels, who wrote this song together with Joy Byers, is the same Charlie Daniels who had a big hit with "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" at the end of the next decade.
