Affectionately dubbed 'Queen of Lovers Rock', Carroll Thompson first took the UK's music scene by storm in 1980 when her classic single, 'Simply In Love' propelled her into country's reggae chart, where it remained in the Top 10 for over four months. The achievement was repeated the following year with the breathtakingly beautiful follow-up, 'Hopelessly In Love', the immense popularity of which spawned the multi-talented performer's best-selling debut long-player of the same name. Reportedly selling in excess of a million albums worldwide, the 10-track album included the aforementioned hits alongside additional new original works that have since become widely regarded as classics of the genre. Recently voted by readers of Mojo magazine as the greatest lovers rock album of all time, the "Hopelessly In Love" album also demonstrated the breadth of Carroll's talent, with the singer not only performing and penning all of the material, but also co-producing the entire set. To celebrate it's 40th anniversary, Trojan Records proudly make this seminal album available once more. The CD format includes 6 bonus tracks, all of which have been unavailable on any format since the early Eighties. All tracks have also been remastered. The album has been further augmented by newly written sleeve notes and rare imagery from Carroll herself, "Hopelessly In Love" finally receives the deluxe treatment it's status and profound influence has long since deserved.
