Cedric Myton & Congo - Image Of Africa (1979)


The Congos are a reggae vocal group from Jamaica which formed as the duo "Ashanti" Roy Johnson (tenor) (b. Roydel Johnson, 1947, Hanover, Jamaica) and Cedric Myton (falsetto) (b. 1947, Saint Catherine Parish, Jamaica), later becoming a trio with the addition of Watty Burnett (baritone) (b.early 1950s, Port Antonio, Jamaica) and have been active on and off from the mid-1970s until the present day. They are best known for their "Heart of the Congos" album, recorded with Lee "Scratch" Perry.

"Image Of Africa" by the Congos is seldom heard, but it has great songs, great singing and great playing. The sound is more polished-up and accessible than what you hear on the album "Heart of the Congos", which gets such good press. Still, you'll enjoy a solid roots sound with Cedric Myton's high vocal leading the way. The songs are complex, the musicianship is awesome and it's heavy with grooves
