The Mighty Diamonds are one of the most famous vocal groups to come out of the Jamaican Reggae scene, their perfect harmonies riding over Garveyite influenced words in a deeply evocative manner.

The Mighty Diamonds consist of Donald ‘Tappy’ Shaw (lead vocals) Fitzroy ‘Bunny’ Simpson and Lloyd ‘Judge’ Ferguson providing those fantastic harmonies. They began their recording career working with producers Stranger Cole and Rupie Edwards but found their breakthrough success with producer Joseph ‘Joe Joe’ Hookim at the legendary Channel One Studios recording ‘Hey Girl’ and covering two foreign tunes namely ‘Country Living’ (The Stylistics) and ‘Stoned Out of Mind’ (The Chi-lites) which suited their vocal styles perfectly. The vocal group also cut tracks with other famous producers of the time - Joe Gibbs, Gussie Clarke and Mr.Tappa Zukie, which feature here.
