She also wrote Tyrone Davis' funky Supernatural Thing.
In the liner notes for the compilation album, Ultimate Collection: Gwen Guthrie, she recalls coming to Jamaica in 1978 and working with hot rhythm team Sly and Robbie. They produced her self-titled album for Island Records as well as Nothing but Love, her rocking, horn-hooked duet with Peter Tosh.
Gwen Guthrie emerged during the 1970s when being a singer/songwriter was in vogue. She was also an in-demand backup singer, working on songs by Flack, Ray Charles, Carly Simon, Stephanie Mills and Billy Joel.
Her collaboration with Sly and Robbie produced two solid albums, including a 1982 self-titled set that yielded the hit dance song, It Should Have Been You.
Gwen Guthrie always acknowledged her reggae ties, saying working with Jamaican musicians added a different dimension to her music. She died from cancer at age 48 in 1999.
