"The Melodians came to be in 1965, during a crossroads for the music of Jamaica as ska was popular and slowly turning into rock steady, which would eventually lead to what is now known as reggae. They were a three man vocal group with the kind of harmonies that were popular in Jamaica at the time, harmonies also shared by the original Wailers and The Maytals.

This CD, originally released by Trojan in 1997 and reissued through Sanctuary via BMG, features many of their hits, most of which were only available as long out-of-print 45 rpm single. The majority of those early sides were mixed in mono, one reason for this torrent being small in size, despite it being packed with 26 songs. Internationally, the Melodians name may not be a household name, but for thousands of reggae fans around the world, they represent a wonderful time in Jamaica's rich musical history.

End of status report

"In 1965 Brent Dowe, Tony Brevette and Trevor McNaughton (later replaced by Robert Coggle) assembled as The Melodians. In April 1966 the group started recording for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One, but only two out of four tracks were released. The following years the group enjoyed a string of hits for top " rocksteady" producer Duke Reid : "You don't need me" , "Come on little girl" , "You caught me" and "I will get along". These songs showcase the trio's cool, precise harmonies. In 1968 they scored with "Little nut tree" and the immortal "Swing and dine" for female producer Sonia Pottinger. In 1969 they teamed up with producer Leslie Kong. Their first and biggest hit outside Jamaican came in that year when they cut "Rivers of babylon", reputedly selling 75,000 copies in the UK alone. The relationship between Kong an The Melodians proved succesful with titles like " Sweet sensation", b/w "It's my delight" and "Rock it with me". After Kong's untimely death in 1971 they recorded for a number of producers (Lee Perry, mrs. Sonia Pottinger, Duke Reid, Harry J.). In 1975 the group split up, but they re-formed in 1976 recording many of their old hits for Harry J. with backing of the Soul Syndicate band. In the mid eighties the trio re-formed once again, however with little succes. This set comprises most of the group's best recordings for several producers, covering the period 1967-1973. It's a splendid collection of one of the best vocal harmony groups coming out of Jamaica, being one of the founders for today's Jamaican music."
