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 !

Floyd Lloyd Seivright – Check Out Your Mind (Jamaica, 1983, Tropic)

For today, I decided to make you rediscover a Reggae Disco track recorded in 1983 by the very well known Jamaican singer Floyd Lloyd, typically the kind of West Indian musical “Discolypso” mixed genre I like – Hope you’ll enjoy it too !!
