• 19 TRACKS NEW TO CD
• SEMINAL 1972 TROJAN ALBUM
• INCLUDES SOME OF THE BIGGEST JAMAICAN HITS, 1971- 1973

Having made his mark alongside Billy Dyce in the popular vocal duo, the Inspirations, Trevor Shaw aka Jimmy London embarked on what proved to be immensely successful solo career, commencing with a succession of Jamaican hits for leading Kingston-based enterprise, Randy’s Records.

Such was the singer’s success that in 1972, Randy’s Records gathered a dozen of the singer’s recordings for what was his – and the company’s – very first long-playing record, “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”.

Concurrently issued in the UK by Trojan Records, the album firmly established London as a major recording star, with highlights including popular reggae interpretations of the title track, along with ‘A Little Love’, ‘Shake A Hand’, ‘It’s Now Or Never’ and ‘Walk With Love’.

By this time, Trojan had launched its own Randy’s subsidiary label to showcase the cream of its Jamaican counterpart’s output, and it is the majority of tracks that saw issue on the UK imprint between 1971 and 1973, along with remaining highlights from this period (including those featured on the unissued Trojan album, “A Little Love”) that comprise the remainder of this essential double-disc collection of classic early reggae sides.
