I think everyone remembers Millie Vanilli a duo that formed in Germany. Well, they were brought together by the same person as my next selected artists Boney M. The difference was that Boney M actually performed live. The main vocalists on their recordings were Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett, but at live performances, Maizie Williams and Bobby Farrell would also sing.
All four singers were from the Caribbean and in 1978, they would release a single that had “Rivers Of Babylon,” on The “A” side and Brown Girl In The Ring on the “B” Side. Both songs also originated in Jamaica and were a major hit in Europe and the United Kingdom (UK).
That same year they would also release “Mary’s Boy Child – Oh My Lord.” It would be the biggest Christmas release in the UK.
Let us listen to Boney M with “Little Drummer Boy.”
