Johnny Osbourne's Truth And Rights Deluxe Edition Out July 8th
Published May 1, 2008

Heartbeat Records is announced the release of Johnny Osbourne’s Truths and Rights Deluxe Edition on July 8. Originally released in 1979, the Truths and Rights LP helped usher in the 1980’s dancehall sound. It also solidified Johnny Osbourne’s popularity he would go on to become one of the most prolific artists of the dancehall reggae genre.

Recording in Jamaica with producer Clement Dodd, Johnny was presented with a plethora of classic Studio One rhythms from the vaults on which to record. In “Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae,” David Katz writes, “This album is one of the most outstanding LPs to come from Studio One in this time period.” The legendary foundation label was undergoing a creative renaissance with new prototypical dancehall albums by Freddie McGregor, Sugar Minott, Michigan & Smiley, and Willie Williams.  This deluxe edition includes all ten album tracks, re-mastered from the original tapes.  An additional five tracks have been added and include extended mixes, a dub version and a bonus track from the period.
