Performer Notes
  • Liner Note Author: Duke Reid.
  • Recording information: Treasure Isle Recording Studio.
  • Although they didn't really record for very long, Jamaica's Paragons left behind enough tracks to assure their place in the rich tradition of the island's pop vocal groups. Influenced by American soul, R&B, and doo wop, and led by the lead vocals of John Holt, the Paragons delivered several rocksteady classics, including "The Tide Is High" (later covered and turned into an international hit by Blondie), "Wear You to the Ball," "On the Beach," and "You Mean the World to Me," all of which were produced by Duke Reid at Treasure Isle with Byron Smith engineering, with Tommy McCook and the Supersonics providing the grooves. This set collects these Treasure Isle sides, although the source for each comes from the original 45 single, so there are audible pops and cracks on some of them, a minor but probably unavoidable problem. ~ Steve Leggett
