CD debut for seminal Treasure Isle album
Many tracks new to CD
One of the most popular and influential Jamaican
groups of all time
Formed early in the 1960s, Justin Hinds & The Dominoes swiftly became one of Jamaica’s most celebrated vocal trios, their pioneering work with Treasure Isle producer, Duke Reid opening the way for the roots sound that would come to dominate the island’s musical landscape the following decade.
The trio of Hinds, backed by old school friends, Dennis Sinclair and Junior Dixon remained hugely popular into the next decade, securing major ska, rock steady and reggae hits that included ‘Carry Go Bring Come’, ‘Rub Up, Push Up’, ‘Here I Stand’, ‘Save A Bread’, ‘Drink Milk’ and ‘Mighty Redeemer’.
Duke Reid’s passing resulted in the collaborations with Treasure Isle’s new owner, Sonia Pottinger, which spawned further hits in ‘Oh What A Feeling’, ‘Rig-Ma- Roe Game’ and ‘Wipe Your Weeping Eyes’.
In 1976, the producer also released the group’s long overdue debut album, ‘From Jamaica With Reggae’, which featured some of the trio’s biggest hits to date, along with a number of previously unissued tracks from the preceding eight years.
Previously unissued digitally, the LP forms the basis of this collection, with the original dozen tracks bolstered by a further 14 recordings, many of which appear on CD for the first time.
