The Inspirations

The Inspirations were essentially a duo of Jimmy London (Trevor Shaw) and Billy Dyce (Ransford White), who were active on the Jamaican music scene at the end of the 1960s and into the early '70s. They initially worked with producer Lee "Scratch" Perry, and their song "Tighten Up," recorded at Studio One, was actually Perry's first independent production (Perry, for some reason, called the group the Untouchables when the single was released). The Inspirations also recorded several fine tracks for Joe Gibbs between 1969 and 1971, most of which are collected on the group's only album, Reggae Fever. After their sessions with Gibbs, the duo returned to working with Perry, before splitting for solo careers in 1971. ~ Steve Leggett

Great Southern gospel group. This gospel group originates from Bryson City NC. I have been listening to them for years and years. This goes to show one can't always trust what this website or any other always writes. Gotta check it out when in doubt. Love the Inspirations !

This could NOT be the Inspirations from Bryson City, North Carolina! Why there isnt a Jamaican in the bunch! They are Southern Gospel. If they've ever done reggae, I sure haven't heard it. Your critic/revie w e r has gotta be wrong on this one.

I just can't for the life of me envision The Inspirations in dredlocks!

@ bobsuki63 I think it would be funny to see your dad sing Jamaican music. He could probably pull it off and it would be good. He is the best baritone in Southern Gospel Music.

I emailed Pandora about the bio... they informed me that they do not write them. They are sourced from a partner, and sometimes get mixed up with similar named artists.

Well my dad definitely doesn't sing Reggae music...my dad (Melton Campbell) sings baritone with the Inspirations , and they definitely sing southern Gospel! :)

Sad to hear Mr. Mike Holcomb the best Gospel bass could or already has decided to retire from the group. Sad seeing the oldies and the best of the best stepping down. New generations not the same standards.

Jamaican???? ? I think not!!!!!
The Inspirations should be applauded for keeping traditional southern gospel alive in this new wave of so called gospel that sounds more like rock than gospel.....t h a n k you Inspirations for staying true to gospel. NOT ASHAMED!!

The Inspirations are the epitome of southern gospel quartet music. Founded in the 1960's in Bryson City, North Carolina by Martin Cook. Cook, a school teacher, brought together four of his students to form the group.

They just don't come any better than the Inspirations ! I like other groups a lot, but the Inspirations are the best! I wish there was more of theirs on here. (And that they'd get the bio straightened out...)

I also love this song I'm not ashamed--I hope I can always show others that I am not ashamed of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Inspirations is my favorite gospel group and always when I can I love to watch them perform. They are so spirit-fille d , and I always cry the whole time they are performing.
