LP version. Jackie Edwards's voice can be heard on hundreds of ska, r&b, soul, and rocksteady records. In fact, all the incarnations that evolved from reggae. He was at the birth of Island Records and his distinctive soulful voice has rightly given him the moniker of the Original Cool Ruler. Jackie Edwards (b. Wilfred Edwards 1938, Jamaica) was a renowned singer from the early days and by 1959, he had presented future Island Records owner Chris Blackwell with two outstanding tunes. The first a sentimental ballad "Your Eyes Are Dreaming" and a Latin beat tune "Tell Me Darling". His song-writing skills were much in so much demand, and his popularity of such importance, that when Chris Blackwell went to London in 1962 to set up his record company, he took his top balladeer Jackie with him. This would pay dividends when a UK group Blackwell had signed called The Spencer Davis Group went on to release two of Jackie's compositions "Keep On Running" and "Somebody Help Me", which topped the British charts in 1966. With Mister Peaceful, Kingston Sounds have compiled some of Jackie Edwards's finest songs - all cool tunes in different reggae styles but all sung to perfection. CD version includes five bonus tracks.
