THE HEPTONES - BIOGRAPHY:
Leroy Sibbles, Earl Morgan and Barry Llewellyn: first came together as "The Hep Ones" in 1965 in Kingston but they soon changed their name to "The Heptones".
The Heptones recorded for major Jamaican record producers at the time. They began their career, after one unsuccessful single for Ken Lack's "K Calnek" label, under the watchful eye of Coxsone Dodd of Studio One. The Heptones had a number of Jamaican hits for Studio One, beginning with "Fattie Fattie", their first Studio One single in 1966. This began a long run of success for Coxsone...
In 1975 The Heptones signed 2 album with Chris Blackwell's (Island Records), "Night Food" in 1976 and "Party Time" in 1977.
"Night Food" was produced by Danny Holloway and featured several re-recorded Studio One classics as well as new originals like "Country Boy" and "Mama Say". The group toured England with Toots & The Maytals to support Night Food's release.
In the 1977 "Leroy Sibbles" left the group to start a successful solo career. He was replaced by Dolphin "Naggo" Morris - (See details below).
The original trio reunited in 1995, and released "Pressure!", produced by Tappa Zukie.(Wikipedia.en)
