    True Persuaders is a group composed by Courtney Edwards, Peter Seal and Sammy Melbourn. Peter and Courtney are from Harbour View and Sammy is originally from Trench Town, Kingston, Jamaica. They produced and released their first single called "Natty Lead The Way" on their own "Writers Of Rastafari" label in 1979. The song was recorded at the API (JIS) studio where Courtney Edwards worked for a short time after leaving High School. With the help of Bunny Wailer, they pressed and sold a few copies of this record. "Phone Line" was recorded at Music Mountain studios, Stony Hill, Kingston, Jamaica. The studio wasnt fully ready when they recorded it. It was an early recording at the time. Sly Dunbar (Drum) build the rhythm track with Courtney Edwards (Bass). Courtney did also the lead vocal while back up vocals were made by Sammy Melbourn, Peter Seale & Jimmy Stanley. On keyboard you have Ervin ‘Allah’ Lloyd, Guitar is Trevor Roper and Mikey Riley was the engineer.
