Derrick Harriott and The Chariot Riders – Float On (Jamaica, 1977, Crystal Records)

For today, I decided to make you rediscover the song “Float On“, originally recorded in 1977 by The Floaters (a band from Detroit), but that the Jamaican artist Derrick Harriott covered the same year with his band The Chariot Riders on his own “Crystal Records” label.

The result is a superior alternate Island version, a blend of Soul, Ska and Reggae, exactly the kind of Lovers Rock I like – Enjoy !
