Jimmy James first burst upon the soul scene in the late 1960’s with his band The Vagabonds when his recording of the Neil Diamond song “Red Red Wine” took the country by storm. Jimmy then went on to record” A Man Like Me” which has become one of the great soul classics of all time.
Two of Jimmy’s biggest hits “Now is the time” and “I’ll go where the music takes me” both taken from his solo album “Now” have become standards in the disco jargon. In 1989/90 Jimmy James and the Vagabonds were presented with the Daily Mirror’s prestigious Club Band of the year award. This well deserved award was clublands recognition of Jimmy’s superior artistry.
“Baby Now that I’ve Found You” became the very first release for Clem Curtis the voice of The Foundations. After much initial airplay on Radio Caroline the record went to the top of the charts in September 1967.
This chart topping success led to numerous radio and TV appearances for The Foundations, together with further hit singles such as “Build me up Buttercup” and “In the bad bad old days” over the following two year period. The group followed with a world tour where they appeared alongside performers such as Janis Joplin, The Bee Gees, The Four Tops playing in 30 different US states alone.
