Synopsis

Album Description
2007 digitally remastered reissue of Boney M's 1981 album. This Euro-Disco quartet were put together by producer/songwriter Frank Farian and their albums and singles were aimed directly at the dancefloors across the world. Boney M's sound featured male/female harmony vocals, a stomping Disco beat, swooping strings, funky guitar and hook-filled melodies that are still fondly remembered by millions of fans worldwide. After Boney M, Farian's next successful project was the equally popular but ill-fated Milli Vanilli. Faria.

CD Reviews

Fantastic, heartwarming, great mix of melody
Levi Nwasoria (lnwasoria@aol.com) | Kansas City, U.S.A | 11/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't believe I finally got my favorite CD. Off course, at the time I had it, it was on LP. This was in the early 1980s while I was still living in Nigeria. Boney M was so popular!. When I came to the States I left my album and couldn't get it back. This CD, with tracks like African Moon, Ride to Agadir and Breakaway, is my all time favorite. I was disappointed when I came to the States and found out that these guys were not well known. Thanks to internet technology, I now have this CD and will definetly buy more of their their music. I highly reocmmend this CD to anyone that loves music that is heartwarming, melodious, easy to listen with a variation of disco. I wish the Goup well in whatever they are doing these days.. If anyone has information about the group's current activity, please share."
Socially aware swansong

(5 out of 5 stars)

"i completely agree with the previous review; when this album was released in 1981 it was a commercial failure and boney m. were history, however it is a very good album; like abba's 'the visitors', the original formation's swansong is the group's most mature and engaged collection to date; almost every song here features mature lyrics which are either socially or historically aware; only 'sad movies' is a throwaway and somewhat out of place, the rest is beautifully performed; a personal favourite is 'jimmy'"
A Jamaican Vacation

"Though Boney M. is largely unknown in this country, everyone I know who has listened to their music falls in love with it. Combining ethnic folk songs, classic American pop and soul, and island rhythms, Boney M. consistently makes interesting albums. Boonoonoonoos is one of their greatest accomplishments. The Caribbean influences hinted at in earlier works are fully embraced. Producer Frank Farian, known also for No Mercy ("Where Do You Go") and the now-infamous Milli Vanilli, has a great ear for melody and superb production values. He also has the money and taste to use the best musicians and vocalists in Europe. There is not a clunker in this lineup and some songs, such as "African Moon," rank with the best I've ever heard. Buy anything by Boney M. you can find and afford, and start with this album if you can."
