If you want the original material with Boney M., then stay FAR away from this release.

It's a re-release of the 1992 compilation "Gold" with a few changes.

It's yet another compilation that's including edits and remixes. How can it be so hard to get the original single-versions or LP-versions on a compilation? If Sony Music had had a little interest in Boney M. it would not have been difficult at all. It however seems to be all about easy money.

Sony Music seems to enjoy the use of the "Gold" compilation from 1992 when putting together new compilations. Note! All tracks from the "Gold" compilation are remixes as the tracks have been added extra drumbeats and hi-hats. Most are edits as well!

Some reasons to stay away from "The Magic Of Boney M.":

"Rivers Of Babylon" is not the original 1978 version. It's a remixed version from the 1992 "Gold" compilation.

"Brown Girl In The Ring" is not the original 1978 version. It's a remixed version from the 1992 "Gold"
compilation.

"Sunny" is not the original 1976 version. It's a remixed version from the 1992 "Gold" compilation.

"Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord" one of the group's biggest hits ever is also included in an edited and remixed version. It's a real DISASTER! The original single version that went to no. 1 in England in 1978 was running 5:43 minutes - a true master piece. The version included on this compilation is ONLY 4:01. Yet another edit and remixed version from the "Gold" compilation. It honestly stinks. In the included version Maria and Joseph never make it to Bethlehem which means that Jesus never was born and there's therefore actually nothing to sing about! Over half of the story has been cut out. How is that possible?

This collection contains the pop-disco group Boney M's greatest hits from their heyday in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The styles include hardcore disco (Daddy Cool, Sunny) and bouncy reggae like Rivers of Babylon (a remake of a Melodians song) and Brown Girl In The Ring. (As a 2-sided hit single, this was one of the biggest hits in the UK in 1978 and stayed on the charts for ages).

More buoyant reggae can be found on Hooray Hooray, No Woman No Cry and their lovely Christmas song Mary's Boy Child. There's also pure pop like Rasputin, Painter Man and El Lute. Besides the aforementioned songs, other great numbers include of course the brilliant Ma Baker (which tells the story of Chicago gangster Ma Barker) and the deceptively airy Belfast which commented upon the troubles in Ulster. (Disco music wasn't meant to be serious).

Like ABBA, Boney M made superb pop music. All the songs have aged well and it's good to hear dance music with personality again. Although the tracks are not arranged chronologically, this is a great compilation, well worth the price.

This release is fine for anyone new to the music of Boney M, but for the true fan it is a lost opportunity. Ok, it has a remix of "Sunny" & a new recording by Liz Mitchell "A Moment Of Love" - was Marcia Barrett invited to join the recording of this song?, if not, why?: opportunity lost!!!!. All the big UK hits are here but it is ruined by the fact the some of the songs appear in shortened versions (Gotta Go Home, Mary's Boy Child, El Lute etc). This release would have been a great opportunity to celebrate 30 years of Boney M & not be just a routine compilation to coincide with "Daddy Cool-The Musical". I'm sure there are some unreleased tracks lurking in Frank Farian's vaults & of course there are extended versions to most of the hits (Mary's Boy Child for instance is some 6 minutes long!). I, for one, am disappointed by this CD.

The way Boney M were formed is now a part of History, loosely this guy goes up to a couple of peeps in a bar and says do you want to be in a band with no idea if they can sing.
He need not have worried they could and not only that the tunes they come up with were memorable and challenging real life nitty gritty stuff done with a polish only rarely found on a diamond.
Visually the band have always risen to the challenge and vocally these ideals were far exceeded
Ma Baker me thinks is a high point in their career up there with the 1967 Georgie Fame's Bonnie and Clyde
Rasputin is another it almost makes him likable a rather unfortunate downside of an up beat song
The album is very accurately entitled the Magic of Boney M and Magic is the operative word.

An absolute classic album of songs from the fantastic group Boney M. If you like Boney M and Greatest Hits collections then this is one of the best collections you could have. It has the best Christmas song of all time, which is mine and my late brother Pete's favourite song Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord. It also has Rivers Of Babylon, Brown Girl In The Ring, Painter Man, Daddy Cool, Sunny and Hooray! Hooray! It's A Holi-Holiday. To note Mary's Boy Child and Rivers Of Babylon are in the Top Twenty Million Sellers of all time in the UK, which I think has got to say something about Boney M, they are the best and one of the best groups to come out of the 70's.
