=== Legendary engineer Errol Thompson passed away on Sunday November 14. He was one of Jamaica's greatest engineers, and his work with Joe Gibbs produced some of reggae's finest music including classic works from Peter Tosh, Culture, Dennis Brown, Black Uhuru and the Mighty Diamonds. For a sample of Errol Thompson's work with Joe Gibbs, see The Mighty 2: Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson. Heartbeat A&R Director Chris Wilson reflects... Errol was one of the great and important figures in Reggae, and I was fortunate to meet and work with him. He was so instrumental in the evolution of Reggae Music that his loss is incalculable. He was responsible for the recording of some of the greatest music ever released in Jamaica, including Burning Spear's Marcus Garvey sessions. He never enjoyed the fame so justly due him and many of his works have been attributed to others, but because of his tenure at Randy's studio and his later work with producer Joe Gibbs, Errol will always be remembered as a true legend.
