Discography

Notes

This discography is compiled from various sources: online information, my session records, and my memory! It’s in reverse chronological order. The album list is probably 95% complete. There is much work to do on the 45s! The most popular ones usually ended up on albums anyway. I can’t imagine how I’d ever run all the 45s down. I didn’t play on every single track on every album here, but if they’re listed, I played on it, no matter what the liner notes say.

There are also hundreds of songs I recorded that have not yet been released. For example, I played on one or two sessions a month for Studio One from 1988 until Coxsone’s death in 2004. The albums that I played on which he released during that time are listed here, which is maybe 5% of what I recorded for him.

The dates listed are, to the best of my knowledge, the original release dates. Many of these recordings have been reissued in the CD era and/or bootlegged, so the label information, where I have it, may not be completely accurate. If there is no release date available on line, I’ve used the date when I remember doing the actual recording. Sometimes decades pass before songs are released, if ever.

I’ve omitted most of the reissues, though I have mixed feelings about doing so. However, this list is geeky enough already. By the way, I don’t have copies of everything here. Not even close.

Many thanks to all those who compile discographies on line! Otherwise, I would have never known about many of these recordings. I’m happy to discuss anything listed here with interested parties via the contact page of this website. I’ll add and fix things as I go.
