Maxie Livingston Smith became Max Romeo through his concerted courtship of a local beauty.

Following the demise of the group, in 1968, at the request of Bunny Lee, Max wrote the suggestive 'Wet Dream'. Despite a BBC ban, the song topped the British charts, spawning the debut album 'A Dream'.

Also available: A DREAM (LP).
