Phyllis Dillon - Picture on The Wall AKA Shirley Kay...Bless Up Sister Phyllis .. RIP..One of the toughest birds outa Jamaica...One Love. Phyllis Dillon recorded in rough, tough Kingston, Jamaica, at Duke Reid's Treasure Isle studio, but lived in Linton, St. Catherine -- considered the country -- in the middle of Jamaica. The area, a far cry from Kingston, is where she started singing in school, church, and later with a band called the Vulcans. The crack band found employment all over Jamaica. It was at a gig at the Glass Bucket in Kingston where Dillon caught ska and rocksteady session guitarist Lyn Taitt's ears who suggested she see Reid. She was 19, still living at home, and green as grass. Taitt served as Reid's musical arranger at the time. She signed with Reid in 1965 and never recorded for another Jamaican producer, which was unusual, since most Jamaican artists played musical producers going from Reid to Bunny Lee to Coxsone Dodd and so on.
