Hawaiian Reggae Stars sing Jacob Miller’s Greatest Hits

Hawaiian Stars pay homage to the late great Jacob "Killer" Miller one of Jamaica Legendary Singers who passed way before his actual glory , all songs were recorded and mixed out of Circle Village studios which is an extension of Inner Circle's main studio Circle House Studios.

We would like to give thanks to all of the wonderful artists that participated and helped culminate this celebration of life .

Jacob Miller (May 4, 1952 - March 23, 1980) was a Jamaican reggae artist, who first recorded with Clement Dodd. While pursuing a prolific solo career, he became the lead singer for reggae group Inner Circle with whom he recorded until his death in a car accident at the age of 27. Jacob Miller was known as one of Jamaica's most distinctive vocal stylists, with a trademark vibrato he used to accent his performance.

Inner Circle was an emerging reggae group made popular playing covers of American Top 40 hits. Band leader Roger Lewis said Jacob Miller was "always happy and jovial. He always made jokes. Everyone liked jokes." Adding Miller as lead singer, the band's lineup was Roger Lewis on guitar, Ian Lewis on bass, Bernard "Touter" Harvey on keyboards, and Rasheed McKenzie on drums. Coining Miller as Jacob "Killer" Miller, the group continued to build popularity. They signed with Capitol Records in 1976 and released two albums, Reggae Thing and Ready for the World. Their first hit with Jacob Miller was "Tenement Yard", followed by "Tired Fi Lick Weed In a Bush".
