Derrick Harriott – Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys (Jamaica, 1982, Crystal D)

Great cover by Derrick Harriott (my favorite rocksteady artist) of this classic song from Eddy Grant and his Equals band !

Derrick Clinton Harriott, born on the 6 February 1939 in Jamaica, is a singer and record producer, who founded the famous Crystal records label.

This version sums up the Jamaican producing skills, mixing together disco, dub and roots music, and is for me a direct answer to the song Disco Devil, by Lee Perry.
