Try jah love - Third world

The Jamaican reggae band Third world formed in 1973 when Michael "Ibo" Cooper and Stephen "Cat" Coore left Inner Circle to form their own band. They recruited Cornel Marshall, Irving "Carrot" Jarrett and singer "Prilly". When they released their second album '96° in the Shade' "Prilly" was replaced by "Bunny Rugs" Clarke and an all-new rhythm section: Ritchie Daleyand former Inner Circle drummer Willie Stewart.

Third World's greatest success came in the late 1970s and early 1980s, peaking with their cover version of The O'Jays' 'Now that we found love', a worldwide hit single in 1979. This song brought them to the attention of Stevie Wonder, who worked with them and co-wrote their next hit 'Try jah love'. The single peaked at number 3 in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1982.
