'heart of the congos' is a landmark reggae album whose initial obscurity was due to a dispute between producer lee perry and his label, island records. perry's idea to create a roots vocal album took shape when cedric myton and roy johnson auditioned at his black ark studio. the resulting album had myton and johnson wrapping their falsetto and tenor around one another in the sweetly rendered 'children crying' and 'la la bam-bam'.
