The 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes #23

Do I Worry – Derrick Harriott (Derrick Harriott Production)

Derrick Harriott proves once again that he was a fine singer as well as a top notch producer. Do I Worry was originally by the Ink Spots, their version (released in 1940) was fine but Derrick’s is masterful and proves once again that a cover version can often be better than the original.

Harriott had been singing and producing since the start of the 60’s but it was in the rocksteady era that he really came into his own both behind the producers desk and when holding the mic.

Do I Worry was issued on Crytal in Jamaica and on Island in the UK. It is available on the Trojan Rocksteady Box Set.
