• One of the best-selling reggae albums of the early 1970s

• Most recordings unavailable on CD for almost 20 years

• Includes numerous Jamaican hits

Originally released in Jamaica 1974, ‘Here Comes Ken Parker’ provided the first secular showcase for one of Jamaican music’s finest and most popular performers, Ken Parker.

Over the preceding six years, the singer had become firmly established as one of the island’s most gifted singers, his elegant tenor gracing a series of popular 7” singles, primarily recorded at Duke Reid’s famed Treasure Isle studio.

Now, the popular 1974 collection – also released by Trojan Records in the UK as ‘Jimmy Brown’ – is finally available once more after almost half a century, with its track-listing expanded to include the remainder of the vocalist’s released work for Treasure Isle, along with those of his equally accomplished labelmate, Hopeton Lewis.
