Album Review

The Mighty Diamonds (Donald "Tabby" Shaw, Fitzroy "Bunny" Simpson, Lloyd "Judge" Ferguson) have recorded with most of the major Jamaican producers in their long career as one of the island's greatest harmony trios, and their body of work has shown a remarkable consistency. Heads of Government collects the best of the tracks the group made with producer Donovan Germain at Channel One and Tuff Gong in the mid- to late '90s. While it doesn't quite measure up to the benchmark material the Mighty Diamonds recorded in the mid-'70s at Channel One (and which led to their classic Right Time album from 1976), there is still a lot to like here, including the wonderful smooth soul vocals on "Natural Man," "Tell Me What's Wrong," "Heads of Government," and the opening track, the dancehall-inflected "Tamarind Farm." It might not be the best place for listeners new to the Diamonds to start, but longtime fans of the trio will definitely want to check out this one.

Biography

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Vocal trio the Mighty Diamonds were one of the most internationally popular reggae groups to emerge from the '70s roots era. More accessible than many other roots outfits, the Diamonds boasted soulful, gorgeously pure harmonies and tight, catchy songwriting, much of it from within the group itself. They were devout Rastafarians, but balanced their spiritual and political messages with sweet romantic material, which gave them a more universal appeal than militant groups like Culture or Black Uhuru....
