Mighty Maytones

Mighty Maytones - Boat To Zion

Recent arrival at Fat City HQ from the duo of Vernon Buckley (lead vocals) and Gladstone Grant (harmonies).
Taking their name from their home town of May Pen in the parish of Clarendon (similar to the Maytals, also from May Pen, with the “tones” in the fashion of other groups such as the Heptones), the Maytones were closely linked with producer Alvin “GG” Ranglin from the late 60’s on, returning to him in the early 70’s after a short period recording for other producers; Ranglin astutely licensed many of his productions for overseas release and the Maytones (by now dubbed “Mighty” in the style of the Mighty Diamonds) benefited from their first two LP’s, Madness and Boat To Zion, being released on the Burning Sounds label in the UK where they achieved significant success.
