The monumental piece with the well deserved name, ‘Don D Special’ on the flip.

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$12.53)

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.

Ernest Ranglin - Mod Mod Ranglin

Dub Store Records JPN 1967

¥2880 (US$26.14)

A fundamental album released in 1966 that determined the way Rocksteady was going to journey. In 1966, Rude Boys were at the peak of the fame with their notorious behaviors, while Ska gradually started to slow down its tempo, this album paved the way for a newborn music, Rocksteady with rather slower and tighter rhythm approach. This album should be picked one of 10 pieces of the most important album of Reggae history.

Derrick Harriott - Look Over Your Shoulders / Dancing The Reggae

Wild Flower / Dub Store Records JPN 1975/ 1976

N/A

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.

Bide Up
