5 June 1950, Washington, DC, USA, d. 10 November 1990. Having played a leading role in the Broadway production of Hair, Dyson pursued his thespian ambitions in Salvation, a less infamous musical, from 1970. One of its songs, (If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Cant I Touch You?, was a US Top 10 hit, while the singer reached the R&B chart with several subsequent singles, including I Dont Wanna Cry (1970) and The More You Do It (The More I Like It Done To Me) (1976). In 1971 When You Get Right Down To It reached the UK Top 40. Despite switching labels from Columbia Records to Cotillion, Dyson was unable to achieve another major success, and All Over Your Face (1983) was his last chart entry. He died of heart failure in 1990.
