Veteran music producer Lloyd Campbell, who died on Monday, scored a number of hit songs in a prolific career. Some of his early hits like
Dread Out Deh by Joy White and The Itals’ In A Dis Yah Time were released under his Spiderman and Joe Frasier labels.

Although he charted in Jamaica, Campbell’s biggest successes were in New York and South Florida.

In Jamaica, he had hits with ARP, Nadine Sutherland, Pam Hall, Sanchez, Marcia Griffiths, Richie Stephens, Mikey General, LUST, Lady G, Terry Linen, Freddie McGregor, Morgan Heritage, and George Nooks.

Kashief Lindo, Glen Washington, Fiona, Maxi Priest, Roger Robin and Mikey Spice are the reggae acts outside of Jamaica, for whom Campbell produced hits.

His biggest project in recent years was the What Kind of World ‘rhythm’. Released in 2000, it yielded I See It In You by McGregor, Pretty Girl (Sanchez), Last Night Memory (Sutherland), No More Lonely Nights by Fiona, and Morgan Heritage’s Down by The River.

Campbell had number one hits on the New York Reggae charts with Washington’s Jah Glory; Frenzy by Sanchez; Back in The Days
Marcia Griffiths; My Girl Dis (Maxi Priest and Richie Stephens); I Pray and Uncle Sam (Freddie McGregor); No Time to Linger (Terry Linen); Good Thing Going (Fiona); I Cry You Cry (Mikey Spice); and Touch Me by LUST.

Other strong productions from Campbell were George Nooks’s So Much Love and My Children, Washington’s Kindness For Sweetness, Pam Hall’s cover of Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart, and Sanchez’s take on Britney Spears’ Sometimes .
