Donald “Tabby” Shaw’s Career, What was his profession?

Tabby Diamond was the lead vocalist of the Mighty Diamonds a Jamaican harmony trio, recording roots reggae with a strong Rastafarian influence.

Formed in 1969 in the Trenchtown area of Kingston, the group comprises lead vocalist Donald “Tabby” Shaw, and harmony vocalists Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson and Lloyd “Judge” Ferguson. They had become friends at school in the mid-1960s, and were originally called The Limelight, adopting ‘Mighty Diamonds’ after Shaw’s mother started referring to them as “the diamonds”.

Their smooth harmonies and choreographed stage show were inspired by Motown vocal groups of the 1960s, with Shaw listing The Temptations, The Stylistics, The Impressions, and The Delfonics as influences as well Jamaican rocksteady artists such as John Holt and Ken Boothe.

In the early 1980s, they recorded with producer Gussie Clarke, largely using old Studio One tracks as the basis for their recordings, and dubplates of these sessions became popular on sound systems in Jamaica, New York, and London, particularly “Pass the Kouchie”, recorded on the “Full Up” riddim. Their work with Clarke produced the 1981 album Changes.

The group continued to release albums regularly, adapting successfully to the prevailing digital rhythms of the 1980s and beyond. Tabby, Bunny, and Judge have issued over forty albums in their long career.

They have more than 70 albums and have done more than 10 live concerts.

In 2021, the group was honored in the National Honours and Awards on Jamaica’s 59th Anniversary of Independence.
