      Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s Records dominated the Jamaican music scene throughout the years that immediately followed the arrival of reggae music in the late Sixties.

      During this hugely exciting period, Kong’s artists roster included many of the island’s finest talents, notably the Maytals, the Pioneers, Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley & the Wailers, the Melodians and, of course, the Gaylads. The latter having been regular Jamaican hit-makers ever since Harris ‘BB’ Seaton, Winston Delano Stewart and Maurice Roberts first collaborated in 1963.

      The trio’s tenure with Kong’s Beverley’s Records commenced in the summer of ‘69, after which they set about producing a slew of high quality recordings, with significant sellers from the period including such enduring works as ‘There’s A Fire’, ‘Tell The Children The Truth’, ‘Soul Sister’ and a version of James Taylor’s ‘Fire And Rain’ that proved so popular it provided the title for the group’s ridiculously collectable album from the close of 1970.

      Now, almost half a century since its original release, the “Fire And Rain” LP is finally made available once more, with the original track-listing bolstered by the remainder of the Gaylads’ recordings for Leslie Kong, including numerous Jamaican hits and such rarities as ‘ABC Reggae’ and ‘Baby I’ll Be Yours’, both of which make their CD debut.
