From the 1978 album Baldhead Justice.
Fat Man Riddim Section was a side project featuring members of reggae greats Inner Circle. Some guy on some comment board tells us:
“Ian Lewis & Roger Lewis played bass & guitar on most albums, but not all. (hence the name "fatman" I'm sure they were the core of the band along with Tommy Cowan's guidance. Most of the drumming was done by Sly & Calvin McKenzie. I know at one point, they started working with Touter of Wailer's fame.”

From the 1970 album Δυό μικρά γαλάζια άλογα (Two Little Blue Horses).

From the 2016 album When Shall This Bright Day Begin.

He’s performed over 1200 solo lute concerts in churches and at concert venues around the world, including prestigious rock festivals like ATP and Primavera Sound, playing his all black, one-of-a-kind baroque lute custom build for him.”

From the 1997 maxi-single Don’t Lose Your Head.

“INXS (pronounced "in excess") were an Australian rock band, formed as The Farriss Brothers in 1977 in Sydney, New South Wales. The band's founding members were bassist Garry Gary Beers, main composer and keyboardist Andrew Farriss, drummer Jon Farriss, guitarist Tim Farriss, lead singer and main lyricist Michael Hutchence, and guitarist and saxophonist Kirk Pengilly. For twenty years, INXS was fronted by Hutchence, whose "sultry good looks" and magnetic stage presence made him the focal point of the band. Initially known for their new wave/pop style, the band later developed a harder pub rock style that included funk and dance elements.'“
