They started recording as [a=Bassies, The]in 1967. Later they changed their name to Victors, The.

[a=Clifford Morrison] as lead singer produced with his band The Bassies recorded with producers like Sonia Pottinger, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd and Arthur "Duke" Reid. All known recording happened between 1967-1969. They scored one big hit "Big Mistake" which originally got released on Get Ready Rock Steady. Further known recordings are "You can't stop me" and "Things A Come Up To Bump" for Clement "Coxsone" Dodd in 1967, and on at least one The Soul Vendors back them up, so presumably they do on all Studio One recordings. One of their most famous songs ist their version of "River Jordan", in which the trio is eloquently talking about biblical "facts", treating the river, on which they think that big ships can sail (sure, on the Dead Sea), as a girl which it counts to win. All recordings made in 1969 for [a=Sonia Pottinger] are credited to their alias The Victors. Afterwards they got soon forgotten.
