Jimmy Justice: His 15 Biggies (LP)
In the opinion of many people, British Jimmy Justice is one of the most exciting singing discoveries in recent years. With a voice quality in a class of its own and a natural feel for rhythmic phrasinh, Jimmy proved that these were the right qualifications for success.
After leaving school at fifteen, he worked for nearly two years as an automobile mechanic and followed this by working as a circulation representative for an American news magazine.
He first came to the notice of Pye Records when a disc featuring him (and produced independently) was offered to the company for release. It was issued, but didn't exactly set the world on fire. It did, however, make on important point: here was an artist with a lot of talent that needed just the right song to set him on the road to a successful career.
Fifteen months and four records later, Jimmy Justice beat all opposition to get into the top five with a sing entitled 'When My Little Girl Is Smiling'. He then proved that he had really 'arrived' by following his first hit with 'Ain't That' Funny and 'Spanish Harlem'.
The result of this hat trick is the proud presentation of his first album. On this record Jimmy demonstrates his great versatility, from Rhythm and Blues to tender ballads, with brilliant, full orchestral accompaniment by Bob Leaper, in the familiar style of his hit singles. Bob has always written Jimmy's arrangements and it is our opinion that he is the most promising young arranger in the business.
