Jamaica's Lloyd Charmers has indeed had many sides in his long career, ranging from falsetto-voiced singer to soulful organist, from prolific producer and songwriter to purveyor of some of the bluest material to come out of Jamaica in the pre-dancehall era. The problem with putting together a Charmers selection is deciding which version of Charmers to present, since he sounds radically different in his various guises. Truthfully, Charmers is probably best heard on albums where he wears just one of his hats, like the delightful Psychedelic Reggae anthology, which assembles several of his instrumental tracks.

From the late-'50s era of Jamaican shuffle RB and the subsequent ska boom, to the rocksteady and roots reggae of the late '60s and early '70s, Charmers made valuable contributions not only as a vocalist, but as a session musician and producer, as well. Charmers first broke into the Kingston music scene as a member of the singing duo the Charmers, which also featured vocalist Roy Willis.
