With over 40 years in the recording studio and on the stage, and with countless singles and 11 albums to his credit Ras Midas continues to push traditional Reggae music into a new and contemporary dimension while retaining its roots; his performances showcase positive lyrics with original Reggae rhythms.
A Rastaman with a distinctive style and a silky smooth voice, Ras Midas sings with the mission of a musical revolutionary; his powerful messages of social justice, love, unity, and spiritual consciousness have remained unchanged over four decades.

An appeal on behalf of Roots Reggae Foundation artist, Ras Midas.
His first three albums, recorded at Harry J Studios when Ras Midas was a young man in 1974-1977 (aged 16-19 years old) were released by Harry J back in the day on Harry Js in Jamaica and also on Trojan here in the UK -
“Cover Me” (1974) for Harry Johnson’s Harry J Records (JA, WI) and Trojan Records (UK)
“Reflections” (1975) for Harry Johnson’s Harry J Records (JA, WI) and Island Records (UK)
“Kude-A-Bamba” (1978) for Harry Johnson on Island Records (UK)
However, after a copyright dispute, with Ras Midas fighting to gain the rights to the music he wrote and performed, the original Master Tapes were erased by Harry J, and these albums are not available for sale on Discogs or elsewhere.
Sadly, Midas doesn't have a copy of these albums either, and has never heard the original music he made with some of Reggae music's most talented musicians and so we are Reaching Out with Love and Hope to anyone who may have a copy tucked away somewhere.
If you do, or know someone who does, or may do, please, please get in touch with me, or with Ras Midas or the wonderful Nan Lewis and let's see if we get reunite a Reggae Legend with his lost musical treasures.
