CD debut for “Hit After Hit” LP
10 tracks new to CD
Includes some of Jamaica’s biggest hits from 1970 to 1975


Soon after forming in the late Sixties, the Chosen Few became widely regarded as one the most accomplished harmony groups on the Jamaican music scene, as demonstrated by a series of hits for local producers, Derrick Harriott and ‘Prince’ Tony. A subsequent collaboration with Florida-based ex-pat, Noel Williams aka King Sporty spawned the reggae-funk masterpiece, ‘In Miami’ featuring backing from leading soul outfit K.C. & the Sunshine Band.
The enduring popularity of the quartet, comprising Franklyn Spence and the three Browns - Busty, Noel and Errol - was demonstrated by the release of three acclaimed long players between 1973 and 1975, all of which were issued in the UK by the country’s premier Jamaican music record company, Trojan Records.
