Album Notes
His fans remember him as Cecil "Homeboy" Lyde, aka Cecil Holden an artist whose musical talent has been unmistakable since he was three years old. At the age of ten, after winning a talent contest at the Club DeLisa, Chicago s celebrated night spot, he was offered contracts by several major recording companies. Wisely turning them all down, his mother encouraged Cecil to finish his education instead.

Refining his skills during his teen years, Cecil began to work with many of Chicago's great musical talents of the time. Curis Mayfield, The Chi-Lites, Jerry Butler, Gene "Duke of Earl" Chandler, Major Lance and Barbara Aklin were among his early musical mentors. Otis Leavell and Carl Davis, one of the leading figures of Chicago soul music, taught him how to produce and record. "Music has been in my soul all my life," he says. I knew when I was very young that I was put on this earth to share the talent God gave me .

The Capitol records release of his regional hit with Experience II, "Bout Time I Told You" convinced Cecil a move to the west coast was necessary to take the next step. Adopting his stepfather's and mother's last name in tribute, liberated Cecil to pursue his own vision, he embarked upon a solo career, refining his studio know-how along with his ever- increasing musical output.

Utilizing the genius of many of L.A. s finest session players, over the next twenty years Cecil produced and recorded five classic R&B albums. The rise of the internet has sparked worldwide airplay and overdue appreciation for his brilliance. Audiences and aficionados from Beijing to Great Britain have discovered his unique style and made him a favorite internet radio artist, his earlier albums now highly prized by collectors.

Greatest Hits/Ole Skool Classics for the first time combines all the best of Cecil's work and includes the European smash hit, "I ll Make It On My Own" as well as some vintage material not available since its initial release. Greatest Hits/Ole Skool Classics is a look back at the career of a legendary R&B artist.
