MP3 Podcast: Mighty Diamonds - Ghetto Living Style


WWW, September 2007 - In 13 tracks, we are introduced to one of Reggae Music's finest vocal harmony groups.

Donald 'Tabby' Shaw, Fitzroy 'Bunny' Shaw and Lloyd 'Judge' Ferguson: meet the Might Diamonds. Together with the Gladiators, they've made their particular style of the Vocal Harmony Group popular because of their releases on Virgin's Front Line Label back in the 1970's.

In perfect harmony, they rode a number of riddims by Sly and Robbie's Revolutionaries, the studio band for Channel One in the days that Rockers Music was hot.

In this podcast, we're being introduced to the Mighty Diamonds throughout their carrier. Classics like "I Need A Roof" and "Poor Markus" are among the Mighty Diamonds' top tunes, but as the mix shows they are able to ride on a variety of riddims. The last tune, a remix from I need a Roof, even is in some kind of Trip-Hop style!
