The Paragons

Profile:
Jamaican vocal group, mostly known for rocksteady tracks.

The Paragons were originally Bob Andy (Keith Anderson (4)), Garth Evans (aka Tyrone Evans), Junior Menz, and Leroy Stamp, and went by the name The Binders. In 1964 Stamp was replaced by John Holt, and Howard Barrett replaced Menz, and the name was changed to The Paragons. Bob Andy left the group in late 1965, and The Paragons continued as a trio. After John Holt left to pursue a solo career, the group sung with Roslyn Sweet and then Vic Taylor took Holt's place. This new trio recorded 3 albums. The classic line-up of Holt/Barrett/Evans reformed in early 1980's following the success of Blondie's cover of their song "The Tide Is High" but Holt left again after the release of The Paragons recorded with Sly & Robbie.
