The Meditations - Ansel Cridland, Danny Clarke and Winston Watson collectively known as The Meditations, recorded their first hit single Woman is Like a Shadow in 1974 at Channel One Recording Studio.  The group made its mark and sealed their place as reggae legends with the release of the first two albums Message From The Meditations and Wake up produced by Dobby Dobson.  Soon after came the third album Guidance produced by Ansel Cridland.  

Known the world over as Jamaicas legendary harmony trio, The Meditations captured the hearts of reggae fans around the world.  This led to collaborations with Lee Scratch Perry.  Scratch, who produced for Bob Marley and the Wailers, asked them to do back up vocals for Punky Reggae Party, featuring Bob on led vocals. Bob Marley was so pleased with their harmony that he went in search for the group to do more back up vocals for him. It is said by many that The Meditation is Bob Marleys favorite group, which led to Bob requesting harmony and background vocals on songs like Rastaman Live Up and Blackman Redemption. The Meditations harmonic vocals can be heard on some of your favorite track such as, Bongo Man Youths Them A Cry by Jimmy Cliffs, Mr. Cop by Gregory Isaacs, to name a few.
