Jackie Edwards

A rare Island LP from the 60's. A curious mixture of cheesy ballad,ska with some R&B thrown in. I think it's Millie of My Boy Lollipop fame dueting with Jackie on My Desire.

Wikipedia says -

"Edwards was born in Jamaica and came to the attention of Chris Blackwell in 1959; when Blackwell set up Island Records in London in 1962, Edwards travelled with him. Edwards worked as a singer and songwriter for Island as well as performing duties such as delivering records. He wrote both "Keep On Running" and "Somebody Help Me", that became #1 singles in the United Kingdom for The Spencer Davis Group. He continued to work as a recording artist himself, with regular album releases through to the mid-1980s"
