GEORGE FAITH

TO BE A LOVER

Lee “Scratch” Perry, who gave Earl George Lawrence the name George Faith, was impressed with the singer's early songs and worked with him for over a decade. On his To Be A Lover album the greater part consists of soul and r&b covers (suggested by Perry) like “Midnight Hour-Yaya” (Wilson Pickett), “I've Got The Groove” (The O'Jays) in his typical reggae-crooner style.

Lee “Scratch” Perry, who gave Earl George Lawrence the name George Faith, was impressed with the singer's early songs and worked with him for over a decade. Faith's early songs dealt more with romanticism than political sense as opposed to other fellow contempary artists. On his To Be A Lover album the greater part consists of soul and r&b covers (suggested by Perry) like “Midnight Hour-Yaya” (Wilson Pickett), “I've Got The Groove” (The O'Jays) in his typical reggae-crooner style. However it is the odd-ball cover “Diana” (Paul Anka) which shows the unique style of George Faith on his 1977 debut album.
