Jimmy Ruffin — The Entertainer


Before Jimmy Ruffin moved to the U.K. for good in 1980, he had already recorded for the British label Ploydor, which, during the 60’s and 70’s, had “developed its American connections to become a significant soul and r’n’b powerhouse.” (www.polydor.co.uk/history.php)  His LP Love Is All We Need was released on Polydor in 1975. The album was co-produced and arranged by three highly talented singer/song-writers/producers, namely James Roach, Ray Dewey, and Richard Rome. James Roach had written and arranged numerous successful pieces for such greats as the O’Jays, Brenda and The Tabulations, David Ruffin, and Eddie Kendricks — just to mention some of them.

Enjoy!
