The 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-Seventies. Famously reworked by Euro-pop band, Boney M some years later, the song proved so popular for the Melodians back in ’70 that Kong issued an entire album of the group’s work soon after their single hit the local charts.
