The legendary productions of Joe Gibbs have generated many of the reggae genre’s biggest hits. The producer/label operated predominately between 1972 and 1984.
The songs and riddims are most familiar and underscore why Joe Gibbs productions were at the top of the genre during these prime years. Judy Mowatt and June ‘JC’ Lodge went on to have major careers in reggae while other names have faded.
Some of the re-mastered tracks include previously unreleased extended mixes. Featured tracks include Marcia Aitken My Man and I’m Still In Love With You (which scored # 1 Pop in England), June ‘JC’ Lodge Someone Loves You Honey and a special extended version of Althea & Donna’s classic rocker Uptown Top Ranking.
