After making their recording debut during the rock steady era of the late sixties, the Gladiators enjoyed modest success before commencing a hugely successful working relationship with Kingston-based producer ‘Prince Tony’ Robinson in 1976. Over the next few years, the trio of Albert Griffiths, Clinton Fearon and Gallimore Sutherland recorded an array of superb roots reggae sides for Robinson, most of which were issued outside their native Jamaica by Virgin Records. The best of these recordings subsequently featured on 3 popular long players: ‘Trenchtown Mix Up’ (1976), ‘Proverbial Reggae’ (1978), ‘Naturality’ (1979), while a fourth, self-produced LP, ‘Sweet So Till’ ensured that as the decade drew to a close, the Gladiators were firmly established as one of reggae music’s leading acts.
