Synopsis

Album Description

They met in 1963, and soon were recording for some of the finest reggae labels in the business: Studio One, Duke Reid's Treasure Isle, and Sonia Pottinger's High Note. The tracks here (from the Treasure Isle and High Note labels) are classics; recorded between the late '60s and mid-'70s they constitute a crucial piece of reggae history.

CD Reviews

Essential for those who like sweet harmony rock steady
Niel Wright (nielyons@aol.com | Washington, DC | 07/15/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Melodians were a leading group during the rock steady era (about 1965-8), specializing in love songs delivered with sweet harmonies. This compilation was put together with much love and care by Heartbeat Records' irreplacable Chris Wilson, who arranged for digital remastering from the original master tapes. Those who used to collect the original Jamaican 45s will be pleased with the improved sound. The selection is A-1. Definitely the Soul of Jamaica."
