The Melody Makers' breakout album, and why is clear from the opening notes of the title track which kicks off the set. Producers Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, of Talking Heads fame, gloss the record with a perfect electro-sheen, helping shine the pop edges to a sharp gleam, while still emphasizing the dance beats.

Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers discography. The discography of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, a Jamaican reggae family group, consists of ten studio albums, one live album, four compilation albums, twenty-three singles and four video albums. The four siblings initially came together as a musical unit in 1979 to record "Children Playing in the Streets".

In support of the album, Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers embarked on their first tour, a veritable Tuff Gong road show with Nadine Sutherland and the I-Threes along as opening acts. The group was well received at Reggae Sunsplash the same year and the next. And just to keep things simmering, Ziggy was also releasing exclusive cuts to the sound systems, re-recording classic Wailers' songs with new lyrics revolving around the system itself. They then went into the studio with Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz of Talking Heads fame to record their third album, Conscious Party. The group had previously performed songs of different styles and they began expertly blending these styles together, shot through with electronics and fueled by strong dance beats. The album grabbed a well-deserved Grammy and a chart placement at number 23, while its attendant single, "Tomorrow People," was a smash hit.
