Winston Wright is an unsung hero from the Jamaican musical cannon. Although many might not know his name, you will have heard him on many records in your collections. He played that classic Hammond organ riff on the 1969 "Liquidator" classic, as part of the Harry J. Allstars, in addition to many other 1970s classics that bear the mark of his organ, piano and arrangement skills. Wright began his musical career in the 1960s as a session player and soon became an integral part of the Treasure Isle Studio house band that became known as Tommy McCook's Supersonics. He played on many of the rocksteady-era hits that Duke Reid ruled the island with between 1966 and 1968. His mastery of the Hammond organ made him an in-demand session player. He cut some great tunes in 1969 as part of Clancy Eccles' Dynamites. The 1970s saw Winston Wright working closely with Dynamic Sounds Studios' nucleus of musicians, cutting material for all the top producers of the time, including numerous sides for Bunny "Striker" Lee, which Jamaican Recordings has focused on for this set of tunes. From 1975 onwards, Winston Wright was a member of Toots And The Maytals' touring band, but this compilation celebrates his mighty fine studio work, adding his touches to many a fine rhythm as only Winston could.
