I can't remember if we've had them or not!

They cut some great tracks.

They did - and didn't record a vast amount, if memory serves(?)

The one I remember most of theirs is 'Truly', which was probably their biggest hit in `77 and done at Channel 1. Then there was 'Truly' and 'Born To Love You'. Something of a covers band, I love that whole mid-`70s Rock Steady style re-lick from bands like the Jay(e)s.

I hadn't realized they had done so many covers until you mentioned it Marc , very true...

I've always loved their fabulous rendition of Queen Majesty with some wicked toasting by the man Ranking Trevor who's also featured on the 12" of Truly.

Always been impressed with their beautiful harmonizing (same goes for the Tamlins)

some other goodies are Jah Do Love Us for Jammy$ & Righteous Satta for Channel One.

Also like Let's Live In Unity on the Upsetter label 7" 1974.

I'm supposing it's same group?

Hadn't realized Lloyd Ruddock was a member of the Jays Charlie! & that he was part of the Gladiators in the 80's!

Have always enjoyed his Genuine Way for Roy Cousins.

Sorry - I'd meant to say 'Pretty Looks' was their best known number, coming out in the UK on Hawkeye. My bad Embarrassed
