Limited 180gm orange vinyl LP pressing. In the early 1960's, when the Jamaican recording industry was still very much in it's infancy, the local music scene was dominated by a mere handful of performers. Among these musical pioneers was Derrick Morgan. A year after the launch of the Island records label (1967), they released the Derrick Morgan And His Friends LP, which has since become a highly prized collector's item. Recorded at Jamaica's premiere recording studio, WIRL, and featuring the musicianship of leading session crews, the Carib Beats and Lyn Taitt & the Jets, the quality of the tracks remains consistently high. Morgan is one of Reggae's real unsung heroes and this compilation makes it all the more compelling.
