Dandy Livingstone

The Best Of

CD £9.99

Release Date: 26/05/2017

Discs: 2

One of the most popular and influential reggae artists of all time, Robert ‘Dandy’ Livingstone Thompson first made making his mark on the UK music scene in the sixties with a series of fine ska and rock steady 45s, most notably ‘Rudy, A Message To You’ and ‘Let’s Do Rock Steady’.

He was later at the forefront of the reggae explosion, cutting a series of popular singles for Trojan Records, including ‘Reggae In Your Jeggae’, the original version of ‘Version Girl’ (later covered by UB40), and the chart hits, ‘Suzanne Beware Of The Devil’, ‘Think About That’ and ‘Big City’.

All of the aforementioned tracks are included on this, the most comprehensive collection of Dandy’s recordings ever to see issue, and with the set also featuring 15 tracks previously unreleased digitally, its popularity will undoubtedly far exceed that of the only previous ‘best of’ set, released some 15 years ago.

The collection comes presented in a stylishly packaged digipack, which inclides an 8 page booklet packed with fascinating imagery and a detailed bio on his career.
