Information

Soul Jazz Records/Universal Sounds are issuing this seminal 1981 reggae album from Caroll Thompson.

 

Thirty years on, this long out-of-print album stands out as one of the most important reggae albums of its time – a groundbreaking release, which helped define British reggae for a new generation of black British youth.

 

The CD is a bespoke high quality limited-edition deluxe hardback-cased edition of this seminal album with exact-reproduction artwork from the original album (and includes free digital download voucher for use on i-pads, new mac airbooks,  i-phones, mini-macs, etc).

 

There is also a very collectable deluxe limited edition (1000 worldwide – also with free digital download voucher) exact-reproduction expanded double-vinyl edition on heavyweight 180 gm vinyl pressing.

 

Originally released in 1981, the same year as Louisa Mark’s equally classic debut album, Breakout, these two albums became acknowledged reggae classics almost overnight, and the benchmarks on which all other Lovers Rock albums were measures.

 

Thompson had enjoyed early success with the Leonard Chin-produced singles I’m So Sorry and Simply In Love, which rose to the top of the reggae charts in 1981. The same year Thompson released the album Hopelessly in Love, through her own production company. The cover design, featuring a classic snapshot of Thompson sitting on a car bonnet in Harlesden, north-west London, came to epitomise Lovers Rock style and attitude.

 

The album itself was a huge commercial success at the time of release with worldwide sales of over half a million copies. It is released here in full original artwork and tracklisting.
