Harry A. Mudie (born c. 1940 in Spanish Town, Jamaica) is a Jamaican record producer.
He attended St. Jago High School. In the mid fifties, he launched his own sound system "Mudies Hi-Fi", before going to the UK to study electronics and photography. He traveled back to Jamaica in the late 50s. His first production was "Babylon Gone" (1962) by nyabinghi drummer Count Ossie and saxophonist Wilton Gaynair (released in the UK in 1962 on Blue Beat). Mudie spent his time in the 60s mainly operating his "Scaramouch Garden Amusement Center" in Spanish Town . He came back to music in the late 60s with the launch of Moodisc label and by recording artists such as Winston Wright, Winston Shand, Lloyd Jones, Count Ossie and the then-unknown I Roy. In the early 70s, he was the first to record Big Joe. Another first was the use of strings in reggae (John Holt "Time is the Master" in 1973). During the peak of his music career in the mid-late 70s, he worked with Gregory Isaacs, The Heptones, Joe White, Prince Heron and others. He has produced numerous musicians on his different labels which include Moodisc, Jungle, Afro and Jukebox. Mudie relocated to Florida in the 80s where he still resides.
