Featured Artist - Derrick Harriott (Part One)

A singer and producer, Jamaican born Derrick Harriott started out recording with doo-wop group The Jiving Juniors, with hits for both Coxsone Dodd and Duke Reid.  From 1962 he began producing tunes for other artists on his own record labels, many regarded as classics of the Rocksteady era.  This first post features some early Jiving Juniors tunes.
