Even today Boney M. still counts as THE hit formation of the disco era. Since their first chart topping hit ‘Daddy Cool’ in 1976, one hit followed closely on the heels of the other backed by the group’s fresh pop sound, dazzling costumes and sexy shows. Now, for the first time ever, their first 4 studio albums are reissued and remastered to include rare bonus tracks, updated artwork and rare sleeve images
The quartet, made up of the singers Liz Mitchell, Marcia Barrett, Mazie Williams and the ex-disc jockey Bobby Farell, gave such an exciting interpretation of the sound developed by producer Frank Farian that the group was soon to become a permanent guest in what at that time was Germany’s most popular pop show Musikladen.
After that there was no stopping the four and in the years 1975 to 1988 Boney M. stomped their way through the European charts to chalk up a sensational 38 top ten hits, an impressive 15 of which reached No.1 in Germany while A similar success story was written in the UK: 22 top ten hits, five of which reached No.1 – with three Boney M. songs even enshrined in the perpetual best seller list of the UK charts – ‘Mary’s Boy Child’ which ranks 10th and the single ‘Rivers Of Babylon’ with its b-side ‘Brown Girl In The Ring’ which ranks 5th.
