ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
/Alfred Lloyd was born in Manchester, Jamaica in a little town called Spaulding. He is the first of six children. He has four surviving siblings. Alfred’s early musical influences include the famous Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and especially Gregory Isaacs. Rather than following an Artiste as in becoming a ‘fan’, Alfred prefers to listen to and buy those songs that sound good or appeal to him. Alfred Lloyd spent his secondary school years boarding at Clarendon College in Chapelton, Jamaica. He was later to do a stint studying business at CAST as the institution was then known. His first published song was entitled ‘unconditionally’. This was recorded by Deborah Glasgow for Gussie Clarke back in 1989. As a youngster then the potential was good as the sky was the limit. He was working with a producer who could not do anything wrong, putting out hit after hit after hit. Alfred later migrated to the USA though and lost that contact with Gussie Clarke. He tried producing stuff on his own but this did not work out the way that he would like at least not until he decided to go back to Jamaica and started to record his music there.

Alfred Lloyd is not a band, group or organization. He is an individual whose thoughts and ideas transcend music and the routine of life. He believes that the word conformity is used to describe lesser mortals who continue to do what is expected of them and who never try to do anything else in an attempt to improve their lot in life. He works full time at the moment at a job that he enjoys (rare but true) but sees that job as a means to an end and not as an end in itself. He has a never say die attitude that he applies to all aspects of his life. Nowhere can this be seen more than in his musical career to date. He has had to overcome many obstacles over the years but continues to trod on when many others would have (and many may already have) quit and resign themselves to the daily grind to do what they think is expected of them.

Up until this point Alfred writes, performs and produces his own material and while this may change in the near future, he is proud of the quality of the material that he has recorded so far. Among his best recorded songs to date, in his estimation, are MAMA and LET’S TALK, songs that he dedicates to his Mother and to all the lovers out there. He says LETS TALK captures the essence of how to resolve issues that will arise in every relationship.

Alfred Lloyd believes that Bob Marley was special. He (the late great Bob) is the only recording act to date who accurately speaks about the future for mankind. In his song ‘Get Up Stand Up, stand up for your rights’ he said “most people think, Great God will come from the sky, take away everything and make everybody feel high… but if you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on Earth”. These powerful words, going against popular belief, is ratified at Psalm 37 verses 9-11, where it talks about the wicked being destroyed and the good being rewarded with unending life on the Land.

At this time, not much is being said about the personal life of Alfred Lloyd because he says that there is not a whole lot to say! Well, you already know what he looks like and more details about him will be published at a later date… Oh, he is now an American with Jamaican Roots and he lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

For the future, Alfred wants to be the first Reggae act to be awarded his Grammy on stage as opposed to backstage and to perform live there for the whole world to see. His aim is to take the music to a level that it has never been before. To become a household name and to be consistently turning out hits so as to have a perennial presence on the billboard charts. In his mind this is a new beginning and just the beginning

Positive, absolutely positive.! That is all that I can say about this Alfred Lloyd cd. Positively excellent lyrics! Positively no swearing! Positively mellow mood changing songs. This is positively the best cd in any genre that I have listened to in a long time! It is good, positively good! Every song is a potential number one song so I will positively endorse the whole cd. I positively recommend Let's Talk to anyone who is looking for good music. If you are not a Reggae fan, trust me, this cd will make you a Reggae fan. I love it, I love it, I love it! It is positively the best...!

This is a lovely reggae album. My favorite thing about Alfred Lloyd's music are his lyrics. The man is a true poet. I very much like the acapella rendition of 'Someday I Will'. But every song on the album is energetic and lifting. My best regards to Alfred Lloyd. He is the up and coming artist to rival the great Marley.

Mr. Lloyd music is relaxing and quite good. Love his voice, his feeling really comes through without loosing any energy. I have a 4 year old grandson, and my mother is 91...I know that his music will connect with both of them. This is truly a joy for all ages. I especially liked the writing, and the voice tone and timber of War. I think Mr. Lloyd is going to really grow in popularity with more exposure of this CD. He's a rising star...

This Album has a very real and nostalgic feel to the music. The lyrical content transports you to the realities of life. "Someday I Will", both versions I find very inspirational. I also love Mama, Let's Talk, War, oh boy I might be naming the whole album here. I just love it. It's a HIT.

I truly have enjoyed what I heard of Mr. Lloyd's album, Let's Talk. The music and lyrics immediately make me think about Jesus. The best way I can describe the music is like a baby's smile, simple and innocent, but very captivating.

Alfred's Songs by the Pool
I have purchased Alfred's CD and have been enjoying it each time I go to my property's pool here in North Carolina. Now that it is winter, I bring Alfred's songs into the shower and pretend it is a warm summer. Alfred's music is just perfect ANY time of the year!

These songs each have a catchy beat and a catchy melody. This album is good for relaxation and unwinding after a long day working for the man. It didn't take my five year old long to start singing to the tunes of Alfred. Much success to you and I hope there are more songs and conscious lyrics for the future.

From the title track, through Mama and get up and dance-the album has something for everyone. You can hear the influence of dennis Brown and Gregory Isaacs but Alfred has found a way to make the music his own. You will play it again and again

Very well done . Excellent music. Great songwriting. Makes you wonder where has Alfred Lloyd been all this time. I fell in love with the CD from the first song Mama and the CD has not left my car since. Bob Marley would be proud of this true Reggae ambassador. What do I like about this CD? Mine is more like, what's there not to like about this CD? The songs are good. I really like Immigrant's cry, The acapella song, Too late and Let's Talk. Hat's off to Alfred Lloyd! Much success to you

I just want to say that I like the CD. It is very clean. My children and I can listen to it and I do not have any objection to them singing the lyrics of Alfred's songs. As a christian, this is very inportant to me. It is hard to find an album or if you prefer a CD that does not have at least 1 curse word in it but this is dfferent. It is true wholesome entertainment. I like the title song, Let's Talk, I like the Mama song, I like someday I will and track 10 - You wanna know what love is. I mean, I like them all but these appeal to me the most. Good job Alfred!
