Various_Artists___Jackie_Edwards___Come_to_Me_Softly.mp3always been a fan of the jimmy james record, didnt know this existed though, jackie edwards no less

Loved the Jimmy James version when I had an amazingly scratched copy in about 1973. The piano is lovely and we can forgive the schmaltzy strings just about.

Not so sure about Jackie Edwards on this. His performance reminds me of Jamaican crooners like Winston Groovy. Had a tape of Winston's once and I have to admit did play it in the car a lot, but gave it away thankfully to an engineer. Unfortunately it came back and I finally presented it along with a $2 first Walkman to a friend's 3 year-old- en route to San Jose.

When did Edwards record the song? When he was on Island? Trojan?
