99 - Reggae Lover - Joe Gibbs Mix

The producer Joe Gibbs, hardcore Jamaican entrepreneur, engineer, and record producer started recording artists in the back of his electronics repair shop in 1966.

He worked with Lee "Scratch" Perry who had left the employ of Coxsone Dodd's Studio One. Bunny Lee helped them form The Amalgamated record label. Soon 'Niney The Observer' joined the team and they were able to produce Rocksteady era hits.

In 1972, Errol Thompson came on board as the chief engineer and together with Joe Gibbs formed "The Mighty Two." Their studio band called The Professionals featured bassist Sly Dunbar, drummer Robbie Shakespeare, and guitarist Earl "Chinna" Smith.

Hundreds of hits came out including "Money in My Pocket" by Dennis Brown and "A So We Stay" by Big Youth. In 1977 the Culture album entitled "Two Sevens Clash" debuted and became a smash hit which coincided with the punk rock craze in the UK. 

Artists recorded and produced by Joe Gibbs included Dennis Brown, Jacob Miller, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Byles, Barrington Levy, Cornell Campbell, Delroy Wilson, Beres Hammond, JC Lodge, Marcia Aitken, Althea and Donna, Ranking Joe and Peter Tosh. The list goes on and on.

In the new millennium, Joe Gibbs focused on marketing his back catalog.  Joe Gibbs passed on to Zion in February 2008.  He had over 100 Jamaica number one hits and over a dozen UK hits.

He released music on an array of different record labels. An amazing body of work, the Joe Gibbs catalog includes some very important songs in the story of Jamaican music.  Salute to the icon, the giant, one of the greatest producers ever - Joe Gibbs.
