Jimmy, Like One Time Roomate Johnny Nash, Loved The Caribbean And Calypso Music Introduced Into The Mainstream Consciousness By Harry Belafonte.

This Music Form Was Never To Far From His Heart. From His First Release "Twist Calypso", Or Performing Live, Through To Producing One Of Carolyn Franklin's Best Sides "If You Want Me" Jimmy's Passion Remained Intact.

Another Of His Early Songs And Recordings Slated For A Musicor Release Was "Sunshine Hope And Love". A Beautiful Lilting Number With His Voice Multi-layered Throughout. After A trip To Jamaica In 1967 He Wrote The Highly Dancable Ska Inflected "Tears Into Laught" Featuring Eric Gale On Guitar.

"Sunshine Hope And Love"

7" 45 Acetate VG £175

Speaking Of Carolyn Franklins "If You Want Me" Session... It Was During That Time Period

That Jimmy Became Acquainted With Jamaica's Glenroy "Ernie" Smith And Produced His Own Version Of Ernie's Song "Pitta Patta" With Himself And Carolyn Doing Backing Vocals.

This Is One Where You Can Hear Where His Soul And The Surf Meet... With "Raindrops Comin' Down".

Not To Surprising That Dearboy Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" Is Too Soon Realized.

"Pitta Patta"

10" 45 Acetate, Mint- £225

Different backing track on that version of Tastes Sour Chris...it's great. Still prefer the Barbara version though biggrin.gif

Yeah Cause Jimmy's Backing Vocal Is So Prominent On Barbara's Version. But All In All I Like The Man Layin' It Down Like He Did, Usually Over Covers Of His Material Too. :D

Here's Another From The Early Years That I Personally Have Always Loved "I'm On His Side", Plus The Original Demo Of The Monster Big Ballad "My Ship Is Coming In'. Even In These Early Stages This Song Was Making The Case For The Pipes And Thunder Vocal To Come.

Black?, He looks a bit like Peter Seller's twin brother but not as funny.

Thanks the sleeve helps.

LOL :P:D:(

Well He Was Light Skinned And In His Youth Was Nicked Named "Dutch"... And Did Like Peter Sellers And The Goons But Was Very Much From Deep In The Heart Of Harlem. There Are Some Other Shots Of Him In Me Albums Too.
