“Dandy” is Robert Livingstone Thompson a.k.a. Dandy Livingstone, the Jamaican/British songwriter/performer/producer responsible for the hits “Suzanne, Beware of the Devil,” “Rudy, A Message to You” (later covered by The Specials), and “Version Girl” (later covered by UB40).
This 1968 platter is his second solo album, and one of the first long-players issued by the legendary Trojan label (catalog # TRL-2!); it’s a must-have, highly sought-after rocksteady release featuring a host of Dandy originals along with covers of Chad & Jeremy’s “Only a Fool Breaks His Own Heart” (also notably recorded by Mighty Sparrow at about the same time) and the Beatles’ “Yesterday.”
This is the first-ever reissue of this highly collectible classic, pressed in orange vinyl limited to 1000 copies!
