American-Canadian Transgender Soul Singer Jackie Shane Celebrated with Numero Reissue

American-Canadian Transgender Soul Singer Jackie Shane Celebrated with Numero Reissue
American-Canadian soul singer Jackie Shane is recognized as both a stunning soul singer and transgender performance pioneer, and her work will be brought to a wider audience this year thanks to a forthcoming compilation from Numero Group.

The archival record label has lifted the curtain on Any Other Way, set to arrive October 20. Shining a light on the formerly Toronto-based '60s performer, the compilation will arrive in 2xCD and 2xLP sets, included with extensive liner notes and archival photos. Any Other Way marks the first artist-approved collection of Shane's work, having authored the liner notes herself.

The collection brings together all six of Shane's single releases, in addition to a glut of live sessions recorded at Toronto's now-shuttered Sapphire Tavern. Three previously unreleased tracks are also included in the tracklisting, which can be found below along with a release trailer and "Any Other Way."

Here's how a press release sums up the reissue:

With her last appearance taking place onstage in Toronto in December of 1971, the city which Ms. Shane considers her second home and where she lived during the peak of her success, this collection marks Ms. Shane's first communication with the public in nearly half a century. Extensive liner notes tell, for the first time ever, Ms. Shane's story in her own words, copiously illustrated with never-before-seen pictures from a career and life unlike any other.
