The Paragons were a reggae and rocksteady group from Kingston, Jamaica. They began in the late 1960s. The band had four members and released albums from into the 1980s. They released 10 albums total.
This music makes me feel fantastic. It is a feel-good sound and makes me want to dance. The Paragons’ music is outta this world.
Their most famous track was “The Tide is High,” written by band member John Holt. You can hear that track and other great reggae songs on my next show.
