Record Exchange Silver Spring

8642 Colesville Road | Silver Spring, MD | 20910 | United States

In 1966, following his debut album the previous year, Derrick Harriott opened his own record shop and distribution at 125 King Street in downtown Kingston. Like so many other Jamaican vocalists, he began to come into his own artistically with the gentler, more reflective rocksteady beat. Heavily influenced by the music then emanating from America rocksteady proved to be an exciting and authentically new wholly Jamaican style and Derrick proved to be one it's greatest exponents. A perfectionist who was never satisfied to accept the first, second or third take he became well known as a painstaking task master in the studio in the nicest possible way. He closed the decade with "Sings Jamaican Reggae". This Dub Store release was originally self-released on Harriott's own label, Crystal Records, in 1969.Produced By: Derrick Harriott Recorded At: Federal Recording Studioengineer : Buddy Davidson * Alto Saxophone * Karl Bryanarranged By ?
