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.

Francisco – Mamaille Lévé (Martinique, 1978, 3A Production)

Frantz-Charles “Francisco” Denis was a singer, piano player, composer, drummer and dancer born on the 9th of november 1932 in Saint-Pierre (Martinique).

He opened and owned several cabaret in the island (La Paillote, Le Shango, La Cabane Bambou, La Plantation..) in which he played with his bands such as “The Blue Star”, recorded several albums and singles and became one of the most important icons of the West Indies latin sound.

He died on the 19 April 2013.

The song presented here, “Mamaille Leve“, is a brillant example of the sound he created, a mixture of Biguine, Creole and Latin influenced sound, recorded in 1978 with awesome piano arangements – hope you’ll like it !
