After a successful career as a vocalist in the Charmers and Uniques vocal groups, Lloyd ‘Charmers’ Tyrell made his mark as one of Jamaica’s most influential record producers. From 1969 to 1973, he produced and released an array of local hits on his Splash Records label, featuring himself along with some of the island’s leading performers, most notably Ken Boothe, Bob Andy and BB Seaton.

A Collection: Greatest Hits.. and More is a 1989 compilation album by Barbra Streisand. The album sold more than 4 millions copies worldwide.
An energetic East London combo, the Equals balanced maximum R&B with plenty of pop, plus a few nods to vocalist Eddy Grant's West Indian background. Grant, born in British Guyana, moved to England with his family at the age of 12, and settled in a council estate named Hornsey Rise in northeast London. Four years later, he formed the Equals with schoolmates Lincoln Gordon (guitar), his twin brother Dervin Gordon (originally the vocalist), Pat Lloyd (guitar, then bass), and drummer John Hall. The band began gigging around London, amazing audiences with their apparently limitless energy and a distinct style fusing pop, blues, and R&B plus elements of ska and bluebeat.
Not entirely content with being a 1950s R&B star on the strength of his immortal New Orleans classic "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," singer Lloyd Price yearned for massive pop acceptance. He found it, too, with a storming rock & roll reading of the ancient blues "Stagger Lee" and the unabashedly pop-slanted "Personality" and "I'm Gonna Get Married" (the latter pair sounding far removed indeed from his Crescent City beginnings).
Spectacular two disc compilation by the undisputed King of the Blues! 34 tracks, including collaborations with U2, BobbyBland, Gary Moore, and Robert Cray as well as original versions of 'The Thrill Is Gone', 'Paying The Cost To Be The Boss', 'My Lucille' & more, plus live versions of eight cuts.
