  Superb collection of Derrick Harriott / Crystal productions from the late sixties, most, if not all previously reissued on 7" vinyl by Japan's Dub Store.  Harriott, dapper in his "Beatle" suit on the cover, began as a singer with the Jiving Juniors in the early sixties and expanded into production in the latter half of the decade scoring local hits with such stone classics as Stop That Train and Tonight with Keith & Tex, killer instrumentals such as Step Softly by Bobby Ellis and Illya Kuryakin by Ike Bennett as well as his own hits such as The Loser and Do I Worry, all here, alongside collector's pieces like Junior Soul's (Murvin) Glendevon Special,  and Keith& Tex's proto roots Run To The Rocks.  Harriott's productions were always clean, musical and among the best of their time.
