Some Come Running

Original Release Date: 


Original Label:


Jim triumphantly returned to Island Records in 1988 with a renewed sense of purpose, and produced some of his biggest radio hits in the US for many years, including 'Something So Strong' which was featured in the cult movie "Best Of The Best". Joined by old friends Steve Winwood, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and others, critics noted the re-energised sound of Jim’s new record.
