Two CD set. After fronting popular Jamaican vocal trio the Paragons on a succession of best-selling rock steady singles during the late Sixties, John Holt went on to become one of Jamaica's most popular solo performers, scoring a series of reggae hits for many of the island's leading record producers. His international breakthrough came in 1974 with the hugely popular '1000 Volts of Holt' album, which fused raw reggae rhythms with sophisticated orchestral arrangements. The highlight of the long-player was a reworking of Kris Kristoffersson's country hit, 'Help Me Make It Through The Night', which the following year became a global hit, with the single, peaking at Number 6 in the UK charts. Over the years that followed, Holt remained a giant of the reggae scene with further best sellers and numerous sell-out shows around the world. The very best of his solo work has been brought together on this 'Essential Artist' compilation, the latest release in Trojan Records' newly launched range that showcases the work of Jamaica's best-loved 'foundation' artists. This collection superbly illustrates the talent that made John Holt one of the reggae music's most popular and enduring singers.
