In the early 1970s, the Melodians, a vocal trio comprising Brent Dowe, Trevor McNaughton and Tony Brevett, had been a major force on their native island's music scene since the dawn of the rock steady era and continued to achieve significant success well into the mid-'70s. It was their work with Kingston-based producer Leslie Kong that yielded their greatest successes, which included 'Rivers Of Babylon', reworked by Boney M some years later. The song proved so popular for the Melodians that Kong issued an entire album of the group's work. Unissued outside of Jamaica, this very rare and sought after album is finally made available worldwide. Comprising numerous unreleased tracks on this CD, this set demonstrates why the trio are today widely regarded as one of the finest vocal acts in the history of Jamaican music.
