The nearly two dozen scraps that make up Clifton Dyson’s discography are the only story he left behind following his death at the too-young age of 57. His first appearance on the D.C. scene came as a member of the Differences, who issued a lone 45 on the Mon’ca label in 1971. Both sides of the single were arranged by Eddie Drennon, who would ultimately introduce Dyson to Robert Jose Williams in 1974. Sessions commenced at db sound shortly after, where the basics for his debut LP were laid down in short order. Without a name, Williams suggested Dyson’s Faces, for the ever-evolving background players.
