DELROY WILSON - WHERE DID YOUR LOVE GONE


The treasure trove of Jamaican covers of American soul classics is a deep well upon which I have barely scraped the surface, but occasionally I find some gems.

Delroy Wilson's career started when he was 13 years old (1961) with legendary producer Coxsone Dodd, and as his voice matured his material did as well. Delroy had a fruitful career until his death at far too young of an age (46).

The track, of course, is (an incredible) take on the Supremes hit from 1964. While the handwritten label on my copy changes the title to "Where Did Your Love Gone", I have also seen images of the label where the track is simply called "Your Love".

from 1973...
