Many of your favourite TV shows and Films joined in on the holiday season and premiered special episodes and versions of their respective creations. One of those was the Island-inspired series “Death In Paradise” which is featured on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The crime drama series features Jamaican Actress Shantol Jackson who joins a cast who solves mysteries on the fictional Island of Saint Marie. During their holiday special, a few familiar tracks could be heard throughout.
The season 12 holiday version of “Death In Paradise” featured classic tracks from Jamaican Icons Jimmy Cliff and The Paragons, and US-based Reggae Musician/Producer Roger Rivas along with The Brothers Of Reggae. Jimmy Cliff’s “Come Into My Life” secured a spot, and it was co-produced with Leslie Kong, and released through Island Records in 1970. “Come Into My Life” was featured on the 1969 album “Wonderful World, Beautiful People“. The Paragons’ “Only A Smile” also made the cut, and it was arranged by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, and released through Treasure Isle Records in 1967. Closing off the list of soundtrack appearances is Roger Rivas’ “Jingle Bells“, which was done alongside The Brothers Of Reggae, and released in 2015 through Jump Up! Records. “Death In Paradise” previously featured a host of Reggae acts in the series including John Holt, U-Roy, The Heptones, Baba Brooks, and Byron Lee & The Dragonaires.
