      • Seminal 1981 debut album by one of Jamaica’s greatest hit-makers.

      • Features numerous major reggae hits from the late 70s.

      • Includes a dozen tracks new to CD.

      One of the most accomplished Jamaican singers to first make their mark in the mid-70s, Ruddy Thomas found considerable success on both sides of the Atlantic with a succession of reggae chart hits throughout the tail end of the decade and beyond.

      His most successful early works were recorded for arguably Kingston’s leading producer of the period, Joe Gibbs, with hits including his hugely popular interpretations of ‘Every Day Is Just A Holiday’, ‘Let’s Make A Baby’ and ‘Loving Pauper’, which was Jamaica’s best- selling single of 1978.

      Now, at long last, his debut album finally sees its official re-issue on CD, with its original tracklisting expanded to include the best of his remaining work with Gibbs, plus the very best of the producer’s romantically-themed productions from the period.

      Including a dozen tracks new to CD, the collection is an essential acquisition for all fans of both the sound of lovers rock and late 70s reggae.
