Revolutionary Sounds

Revolutionary Sounds

Profile:
Donovan Germain founded his first label Revolutionnary Sounds the same year, working regularly in the Channel One and Tuff Gong studios where he produced most notably The Tamlins (they gave him his 1st hit "Don't Break Your Promise" in 1979), the Cultural Roots (“Mr Boss Man” in 1980, a true label anthem), the Mighty Diamonds, the female singers Joy White and Audrey Hall and The Revolutionaries. He developed two subsidiary labels in parallel - Rub-a-Dub and Reggae - in the early 80's in order to distribute some of his productions in the USA and United Kingdom.
