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.
