Text by Harry Hawks
Date Updated: Apr 12, 2013
One of the first Jamaican record producers to enjoy overseas hits Harry J went on to make the most of his international connections. His state of the art recording complex on Roosevelt Avenue was the studio of choice throughout the seventies for the musicians and artists who followed his lead in taking reggae music out of Kingston’s ghettos and onto the worldwide stage.

“Tafari was and still is a true example of how music should be made and sold on record. It’s probably the only label in the world that upholds its principles throughout all of its business. The message is in the music.” Dave Hendley.

‘Living Legend’ is a much overused and abused description. However, no-one could argue that Ewart ‘U Roy’ Beckford is a living legend. The Rightful Ruler, the ‘Deejay Daddy’, deserves every accolade that comes his way.

Bob stands uniquely as the only person to be born into Poverty, on a small colonially owned Island and to become a major international Music star and an international celebrity. He bought the voice and beliefs of an exploited and subjugated race and class onto a world wide stage.

Burning Spear

Text by Jeremy Collingwood
Date Updated: Mar 23, 2011
Winston Rodney – aka The Burning Spear – stands as one of Reggae’s few Elder statesman’s. He not only still Tours and releases music, but also runs his own label and web site. Famed for his chanting prophet vocals, which resonate to arcane melodies from the Old Testament. In the late 1970’s he was rightly spoken of in the same breath as Bob Marley: indeed there are many that rate some of Rodney’s UK appearances ahead of the more famous Bob Marley Live at the Lyceum gig.

Famed in Jamaica as the artist who took Rasta music into the mainstream with his ‘Beat Down Babylon’ track and in the roots scene as an intense performer of militant and devotional songs. The scope of Byles success was limited by his human frailties, not any lack of musical gifts.
