If “Caught You In a Lie” established the young-girl template of lover’s rock, “Last Date” by T.T. Ross—a white British singer who had previously worked with reggae legend Bunny Lee—established the production team of Eve and Dennis Harris. The husband and wife team later set up their own label in South East London and called it Lover’s Rock, giving the new sound it’s name in the process.
