Description


Description

Jamaica's answer to Sam Cooke, Jackie Edwards was the island's crooner supreme!

A double helping of this great man's velvet vocal, that has made his early work so collectable among the Carib & Island Soul collectors & DJ's.

The a-side of this scarce 1961 UK press "Whenever There's Moonlight" is another Jackie Edwards is another statement of Jackie's immense talent as a lyricist. A romantic Soul ballad reminiscent of Sam Cooke gently effective strollers. Gentle undertones of Calypso but not so much you could class it as a Calypso stroller as the Soulfulness just oozes from the grooves.

The flipside "Heaven Just Knows" perfectly demonstrates the sadness Mr. Edwards so convincingly coats his singing with. Giving up a moving Carib Soul performance ideal for play on the New York "Island" scene.

To superb sides on a very rare UK press from the beginnings of this great man's career.
