I'm finding it difficult to talk about Lloyd (Charmers) Tyrell with just a few words. His production of my hit songs "Thinline Between Love & Hate" & "Summertime" speaks for it self. Our association as the Messengers feat. Ken Boothe, the late Busty Brown & myself is a testimony of our musical relationship and forming Splash label... He will never be forgotten... God rest his soul.....
