Emperor Faith was an early Jamaican sound system from the Red Hills Area of Kingston, Jamaica,[1] one of the most popular sounds of the early 1970s.[2][3] The sound was run by Mikey Faith, who was Bob Marley's accountant.[4] Emperor Faith worked with producers such as Clive Chin.[5] They occupied the corner of Rosemary Lane and Tower Street[6] and often performed in the house of Roy Anthony Johnson.[7]
