OLDIES SUNDAY: Mighty Diamonds – Right Time (1975)


This past week, we lost two Jamaican Music Icons. Gone are 2/3 of the legendary Mighty Diamonds, Donald “Tabby” Shaw, and Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson. While their passing has left an indelible mark in Jamaica, we want to keep them alive through the music. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we highlight their track, “Right Time“.

Produced by Jo Jo Hookim for Channel One Studio and released in 1975 through the Impact! Label (and through the Locks Label in the UK), Mighty Diamonds’ “Right Time” became one of the group’s biggest and most known single. With smooth production, the group spoke of Marcus Garvey’s prophecies, and everything will change for many when the right time comes. “Right Time” was featured on the group’s debut album of the same name in 1976 through Virgin Records, a label that plays a major part of the group’s history and helped their International push as they were some of the first Reggae acts signed there. The Mighty Diamonds celebrated 50 years together in 2020, and was the longest group together in Jamaican music. With their name pressed in every part of the globe, their breakthrough really came at the “right time”. R.I.P. Donald “Tabby” Shaw and Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson.
