2012 release. The Congos possess what all bands look for: that unique, distinctive sound that draws the listener in. Alongside the great songs, lead singer Cedric Myton's singing, phasing, and falsetto voice makes that just the case. The Congos were formed by Cedric Myton (b. 1947, St Catherine, Jamaica) around the mid-'70s when the Rasta message was central to the reggae sound coming out of Kingston, Jamaica. But he had started out in the rocksteady era, when he formed the vocal group The Tartans, taking lead vocal duties alongside Devon Russell, Prince Lincoln Thompson, and Lindbergh Lewis. They cut "Dance All Night" (1967) and "Coming On Strong" (1968). The lineup became The Royal Rasses and from this Myton moved on to form The Congos upon meeting Roydel Johnson, who had previously sung with Ras Michael and the Sons of Negas. Myton's Rasta roots were firmly in place when he went to work with producer Lee Perry to cut the seminal album Heart of The Congos at Perry's just-built Black Ark Studios in 1977. CD includes three bonus tracks.
