Carroll Thompson - Hopelessly in Love CD Trojan Records
Having taken the British music scene by storm in 1980 with her classic single ‘I'm So Sorry’, which stayed in the top 10 of the country’s reggae chart for over four months, her breathtaking follow up ‘Hopelessly In Love’ and album of the same name ensured Carroll Thompson’s enduring legacy. The album would go on to sell over 1 million copies, earning her the affectionate title ‘The Queen of Lovers Rock’, having been a driving force in the surge in popularity of this uniquely British genre that's influence continues to be felt today. With its gentle and enticing sonics designed to take you from the dance hall to the bedroom, Hopelessly In Love soundtracked the romance of a generation and has been lovingly dubbed “the album that triggered the baby boom”, as well as recently being voted The Greatest Lovers Rock Album of All Time by readers of MOJO Magazine.
This 40th Anniversary edition (CD) includes 5 bonus tracks, all of which have been unavailable on any format since the early Eighties and is further augmented by newly written sleeve notes and rare imagery from Carroll herself, “Hopelessly In Love” finally receives the deluxe treatment its status and profound influence has long since deserved.
