He was also a member of The Untouchables, and Rocking Horse (along with Keith Poppin).[2][4] His biggest successes, however, would come in the early 1970s, when he teamed up with the Impact All Stars at the recently built Randy's studio to record tracks such as a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters", and "A Little Love", which were both big hits in Jamaica and the UK (London was the first artist to record at the studio). Both of these appeared on London's debut album, Bridge Over Troubled Waters in 1972. Further hits followed with the likes of "Rock and Roll Lullaby", "No Letter Today", "Together", "Jim Say Hello", and "Don't Keep The Kids".

In 1975, London toured the UK, with further singles being released in the following years, including the hits "Having a Party" and "In My Heart" which charted on the UK reggae chart in 1978,[6][7] with further albums released in the late 1970s and one in 1980. London continued to record through the 1980s and 1990s, including tracks for Phillip Fraser's Razor Sounds label, and continued to perform well into the 2000s. His debut album, Bridge Over Troubled Waters was reissued in 2004 with bonus tracks as A Little Love, the track "A Little Love" also being chosen to promote London as part of Mayor Ken Livingstone’s "Totally London" campaign Read more on Last.fm.
