on Jamiacian soul

took liberty of clipping info from this g site

also has jamaican charts. playlists and much more along with links to sites

The Blues Busters (Phillip "Boasy" James and Lloyd "Lloydie" Osbourne)

Influences/comparisons: Sam Cooke, Eddie & Ernie, Sam & Dave

Male vocal duo whose gospel-influenced call-and-response Soul pre-dates Sam and Dave. Toured the USA in 1964 with Ska band, Byron Lee & The Dragonaires and supported Sam Cooke and The Drifters on their Jamaican tours. Recorded primarily in Southern Soul style with some Ska. Recorded in New York under the auspices of Atlantic Records (Tom Dowd engineer, produced by Jerry Wexler?) and Kingston. Probably not the same "Blues Busters" who recorded for New-York based Shout label. Covered many Soul hits of the day including songs by The Impressions ('Amen'), Arthur Alexander ('Pretty Girls') and The Temptations ('My Girl'). Their reprise of 'That's Heaven To Me' is arguably superior to Sam Cooke's original.

Crucial cuts: 'Soon You'll Be Gone', 'Behold', 'That's Heaven To Me'.

That's interesting as Scepter is a NYC label and the 45 was a Tom Moulton produced affair so not inconceivable that they did something on Shout, .....is it??
