Holt quickly proved himself as talented a songwriter as he was a vocalist. First recorded with the Paragons, the song "The Tide Is High," brought Blondie a number one single in 1981. UB40 recorded another of the group's smashes, "Wear You To The Ball. " The hits continued after Holt launched his solo career in 1968. Several of the tracks on this collection, including "Tonight," "Holly Holy," "Stranger In Love," and "My Heart Is Gone," topped the Jamaican charts, while another, "OK Fred," gave Errol Dunkley a British Top 10 hit in 1979. The Paragons themselves are featured on three of the tracks here, including the militant anthem "Change Your Style Hooligans)," while Holt's talents as an interpreter of other writers' music are exemplified by a magnificent version of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord."
