Between 1974 and 1978, Jarrett Tomlinson AKA Bim Sherman released a slew of singles on his Scorpio and Red Sea labels in Jamaica. In 1979, Sherman was invited to move to the UK by a young reggae/dub producer named Adrian Sherwood to record and tour with the multi-talented musicians on Sherwood’s On-U Sound label.
I recently interviewed Sherwood about his relationship with Sherman, which spanned 20 years until Sherman’s passing in 2000. That interview will be published shortly.
Until then enjoy these early singles from Bim Sherman, the same singles which Sherwood listened to and loved. Singles which would change the trajectory of both mens careers.
