Showaddywaddy had more UK hits in the 1970s than any other act – including Abba! From their winning appearance on an edition of New Faces, the Britain’s Got Talent of the day, to become runners-up in the series’ All Winners Final, it took just a matter of months until the band released and secured their debut hit, Hey Rock And Roll, which reached No2 in the UK Singles Chart. Now there’s a Greatest Hits vinyl LP collection, features 16 of the band’s best-known singles, including nine Top Ten hits and the Million-Selling No1 single, Under The Moon Of Love. Showaddywaddy are recognised as one of the hardest working touring bands in the UK.
Jimmy James started his musical career, composing and singing, at the age of 16. His first successful single Bewildered and Blue was followed by another self penned hit Come to Me Softly which has become his signature song. In 1964 he was asked to join as the lead singer with one of Jamaica’s leading bands The Vagabonds and together they left Jamaica for what was to be a six month tour of the UK. The outfit became so popular that they decided to extend the tour and ended as UK residents. From 1965 to 1968 the band headlined at The Marquee in Wardour Street, London. In 1966 The Vagabonds recorded their now legendary album The New Religion which established them as the most sought after working band in the UK. Jimmy’s recording of Neil Diamond’s Red, Red Wine in 1969, taken from the Vagabond second album Open up your Soul gave them their first commercial hit record. Jimmy recently performed at the Barbican Concert Hall for the BBC on their Soul Britannia series. Jimmy continues to play to full houses on the cabaret circuit and one of the hardest working singers in show business.
