Junior Murvin (Junior Soul) - Rescue The Children / Rescue The Children Version

Move & Groove / Dub Store Records JPN 1974

N/A

Recorded in 1974, this is Junior Murvin's first Roots tune ever. Having always been sought after by collectors, this song is possibly the ultimate classic. This is a completely different take from the one Junior Murvin recorded for Lee Perry in 1977 for the “Police and Thieves” LP distributed by Island. Undoubtedly this is one of Murvin’s best tunes, which should be in every collector’s record box.

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

N/A

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.

Moreover his music brought to listeners a certain comfort, compared to the heavy weight Roots music that was mainly produced during this period.
