Review

Considered something of a rocksteady classic, The Melodians' 1970 debut album "Rivers Of Babylon" has long been tricky to find on vinyl. Surprisingly, this Music on Vinyl reissue marks the first time it has appeared on wax outside of Jamaica and the first pressing of any sort for 50 years. It remains arguably their strongest work: a warm, soul-fired set of loved-up songs co-produced by legendary Chinese Jamaican ska specialist Leslie Kong and his long-time sound engineer Warwick Lyn. The plentiful highlights include upbeat number "Though I'm Through With You", the jaunty "Walking In The Rain", slow jam "It Took A Miracle" and fine opener "Rivers Of Babylon".
