The Mighty Diamonds are a Jamaican harmony trio, recording roots reggae with a strong Rastafarian influence. The group, which comprises Donald «Tabby» Shaw, Fitzroy «Bunny» Simpson, and Lloyd «Judge» Ferguson, was formed in 1969 and remains together today as one of the only reggae vocal trio's to maintain the original line-up. They are best-known for their 1976 debut album Right Time produced by Joseph Hoo Kim and the 1979 release Deeper Roots.

Their first hit singles «Country Living» and «Hey Girl» were recorded on the Channel One label. Two of their greatest songs are «Go Seek Your Rights» and «I Need A Roof» both from the mid 1970s. The classic Mighty Diamonds style is 'roots reggae', in their case characterised by close harmony lyrics, Tabby's relatively high-pitched lead vocals, and earnest, 'conscious' lyrical content. Instrumentation was not as bass-heavy as some of their contemporaries in the 70's.

«Pass the Kouchie» also became an international hit when first released and then again when it was covered by Musical Youth and released as «Pass the Dutchie».

Tabby, Bunny and Judge have produced over 40 albums in their long career. They harmonies are tighter than ever and the Diamonds shine brightest live. They are still touring the world today spreading roots rock reggae across the globe.
