OLDIES SUNDAY: Ginger Williams – I Can’t Resist Your Tenderness (1972)


In recognition of March being “Women’s History Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few women who have made their contribution to the Jamaican music landscape in the early years. Today’s selection comes from a lady who is considered “The 1st Lady of Lover’s Rock“, Ginger Williams! We look at her single, “I Can’t Resist Your Tenderness“. Produced by Ronnie Williams, this was released in 1972 through UK Records (1975 through Paradise Records), and was one of the earliest Lover’s Rock releases. It was also featured on her 1977 debut album, “Strange World“.

Having started out as a member of the British group Green Mango, “Tenderness (or “Tenderly” on her Greatest Hits album)” became a hit for Ginger Williams as a solo Artist having topped the British Reggae Charts. She went on to release more singles and albums, scoring a few more hits over the years, and recently released a new single titled “Can’t Get You Out Of My Mind“. “Tenderness” remains however, her biggest hit.

We hope you enjoy our selection today. Be sure to check out the track and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
