• SHOWCASES THE EARLY WORK OF NUMEROUS REGGAE LEGENDS

By the early Seventies, Derrick Harriott was firmly established as one of the leading lights on the Jamaican music scene, writing, performing and producing for his Crystal and Move & Groove labels, while also operating the hugely popular Music Chariot disco and managing his shop in Kings Street, Kingston.

The high standard of his work is reflected in the quality of his productions from this period, with the likes of the Ethiopians, Augustus Pablo, I Roy, Junior Murvin, the Mighty Diamonds, Big Youth and Horace Andy all benefitting from his considerable talents in the recording studio.

“Earthly Sounds” demonstrates the immensity of Harriott’s production skills, drawing together the very best of his output from 1971 to 1973. Featuring numerous Jamaican classics from the era, including along 20 tracks new to CD, this double disc set is an essential acquisition for all self-respecting fans of high-quality reggae sounds.
