Derrick Harriott - Some Guys Have All The Luck / Kim Harriott - Just Want To Be Your Joy

Crystal / Wild Flower / Dub Store Records JPN 1974/ 1975

¥1380 (US$12.68)

It is an obvious fact that Dreadlocks culture was the trend of the time when this tune was released, but how could we ever imagine Derrick Harriott wearing Dreadlocks? He was wearing Afro instead and showed how he could easily cover Persuaders’ Soul hit. The flip side features another cover of a US Soul track that was transformed to a sweet Lover’s Rock by Harriott’s relative, young Kim Harriott. Apparently Harriott’s surroundings at this time were all wearing Afro even if it was the Dreadlocks era.

Derrick Harriott - Let Me Down Easy / Crystal Generation - Hell Below

Crystal / Dub Store Records JPN 1972

¥1380 (US$12.68)

A classic Reggae Soul tune by Derrick Harriott is now reissued in an extended version which is connected to a tender dub afterword. The B-side features a unique and mysterious Funky Reggae instrumental by Crystal Generation, the special unit by Crystalites and Now Generation, which gave a taste of the new wave of Reggae that would arrive later in the decade.

Derrick Harriott - Look Over Your Shoulders / Dancing The Reggae

Wild Flower / Dub Store Records JPN 1975/ 1976

¥1380 (US$12.68)

It was the Dreadlocks bandwagon in the mid 70’s, but Harriott, who started his career in the music business in the early 50’s, persisted his Afro hairstyle and his signature style of music, Reggae Soul and Lover’s Rock. At that time, music fans only approved serious Roots works but his music choices proved that his production was equally true and great Reggae music. Moreover his music brought to listeners a certain comfort, compared to the heavy weight Roots music that was mainly produced during this period.

The Browne Bunch - We've Got A Good Thing Going / Now Generation - We've Got A Good Thing Going Version

Superstar / Dub Store Records JPN 1973

¥1480 (US$13.60)

Superlative reggae soul produced by Mikey Chung for his own Superstar imprint. Having both young Steely and Clevie in the band, when you think of the further development in reggae music, this production was crucial. Compared to Geoffrey’s high quality lustrous reggae soul this Jackson 5 cover is slightly different and lean towards the beauty of Jamaican pops sounds.

BUY

I Roy - Tougher Than Tough / Chosen Few - Do Your Thing

Crystal / Dub Store Records JPN 1972

¥1380 (US$12.68)

Another cover version of an Isaac Hayes’ classic. I Roy is blasting an heavy-weight toasting over the Chosen Few's vocals on the A-side "Tougher Than Tough". A straight cover version by Chosen Few appears on the B-side.

BUY

Dennis Brown - Lips Of Wine / Crystalites - Stranger In Town

Move & Groove / Dub Store Records JPN 1970

¥1380 (US$12.68)

Being known as Crown Prince of Reggae, this is Dennis Brown's commemorated first single and it was written and composed by Dennis himself. This is, of course, before he started recording at Studio One and is one of his best heartwarming songs. Crystalites' killer keyboard instrumental is featured on B-side and has been admired to listeners who have great appreciation for 1969-70’s up-tempo instrumentals.

BUY

Dennis Brown - Silhouettes / Augustus Pablo, Crystalites - Bass & Drum Version

Move & Groove / Dub Store Records JPN 1972

Shilhouettes

¥1380 (US$12.68)

'Silhouettes' is one of Dennis Brown's earliest recordings and a good old Reggae hit. The flip side features Augustus Pablo's melodica cut to the A-side. This peaceful piece proves that the early sound of King Tubby is the greatest of all.

BUY

U Roy - Dynamic Fashion Way / John Holt - Share My Rest

Inbidimts / Dub Store Records JPN 1970

¥1480 (US$13.60)

Some may call it the original sound tune! This deejay cut strongly represent the new era of reggae music during 1969-70 with a string of new producers landing with serious hits. “Dynamic Fashion” would definitely be one of the top three U-Roy early classics.
