Boney M - Love For Sale

Profile: Producer Frank Farian created 1975 the studio project Boney M and on the first output "Baby Do You Wanna Bump" he did the spare vocals himself. After first success and enquiries of TV stations, he casted the first line-up: Maizie Williams, Sheila Bonnick, a girl named Nathalie and African Mike. The first really recognized line up soon later was by singers Marcia Barrett and Claudja Berry, model Maizie Williams and DJ Bobby Farrell. The line-up of the group went through numerous changes. After Claudja Berry left the band 1976, Liz Mitchell, a formerly member of the Les Humphries Singers, was brought in and she went on to record Boney M's first LP, Take the Heat off Me. Previously recorded songs with Marcia Barrett on vocals, "Lovin' or leavin'" and "Daddy Cool", were included. The group's pop break came 1978 with "Rivers of Babylon", the second highest selling single of all time in the UK. Meanwhile, three Boney M are on tour: Boney M feat. Bobby Farrell, Boney M feat. Maizie Williams and the only official line-up: Boney M feat. Liz Mitchell (Liz Mitchell, Patricia "Lorna" Foster, Carol Grey and Tony Ashcroft).
