Light of the World took their name from the 1974 Kool & the Gang album "Light of Worlds". Formed in 1978 the band became one of the main acts in the "Brit-Funk" movementn of the late 1970's / early 1980's along with Hi-Tension, Linx, Incognito, Atmosfear, Central Line, Imagination and Freeez.
Light of the World were signed to Chris Hill's Ensign label in 1979. Their debut singles "Swingin' " and "Midnight Groovin' " were huge dancefloor songs at the Goldmine in Canvey Island - the home of the UK's Jazz-Funk scene - and across the whole of the UK. The band were invited on to Top of the Pops to perform their next singles in 1980 "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Time". Arguably their most loved song "London Town" was released in the same year. After three albums "Light of the World", "Round Trip" and "Check us Out" the band split in 1982.
James 'D-Train' Williams had his first worldwide hit in 1981 "You're the one for me" under the 'D-Train' moniker on the Prelude Record label. Further hits followed including "Keep On", "Walk on By" and "Something's on your Mind". Splitting with his partner in D-Train, Hubert Eaves III, in 1988, James went on to record the "In your Eyes" album and worked with David Morales, Bob Sinclar, Ben Liebrand and Lenny Fontana.
