While Griffiths had power and range, Dillon possessed melody. It can be argued that there was never a voice in Jamaican music so sweet and melodious. Her earliest exposure to the public came by way of performances with her hometown's Valcanos band as a teenager and later when she came to Kingston, at nightclubs there and in Half-Way Tree. She was introduced to producer Duke Reid's Treasurer Isle Label by guitarist Lynn Taitt and did her first hit (1966), her biggest, Don't Stay Away , said to be the best performance by a female in Jamaica's popular music. Other hits followed, including One Life to Live , Love That a Woman Can Give a Man , Perfidia and Don't Touch My Tomato . She died from cancer on April 15, 2004.
