 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. The best of these works were subsequently gathered on the two Trojan vinyl LPs that comprise this deluxe 2CD set: 'The Best Of Lloyd Charmers' and 'Lloyd Charmers In Session'. First issued in 1973 and 1974, respectively, these two highly collectable albums both finally make their CD debut on this stunning 2CD set. Featuring numerous tracks new to CD, this long overdue anthology of Lloyd Charmers' early output adeptly demonstrates why he is still widely regarded as one of the most capable and original talents Jamaica has ever produced.
