Harry J Johnson, brilliant producer, essential in the early reggae days, 1968-71!

Known by many artist as "Irie J's" he also owned one of the best equipped studios of the 70's in JA.
Wailers' Catch a Fire was recorded there, as well as 1000's of other tunes...

R.I.P. Harry "J" Johnson! The musical Liquidator!
