Achmed comes to CD Baby with quite a history. He performed from
1968-1976 as the 2nd lead singer with the Buddah Records group known as

soft tones. During this time he performed on various albums such as,
EXUMA 11, EXUMA [THE OBEAH Man], REINCARNATION, SNAKE, LIFE, and DO WAH
NANNY. He traveled the world with EXUMA as an opening act for many

Edwin Hawkins singers. He performed for Lyndon O Pindling , Prime

Tony McKay, Michael O''Neill, and Achmed Ben-Mansel. This is when
Achmed''s creative juices started to really flow musically and lyrically.

created and penned almost 100 songs, music and lyrics. He became an
ASCAP writer and publisher. He also became a member of NARAS and was a
GRAMMY VOTING MEMBER from 2000-2005. "FREE AS A BREEZE" is the
culmination of a lifetime of creating beautiful love songs and ballads.
The music is soft, sensual, and sultry to fit almost every taste.
Unfortunately on 1/05/05 Achmed''s golden tenor voice was stilled . I
am LaVerne, his widow, and I am producing this debut CD which he was in
the process of completing but got to ill to finish.
"FREE AS A BREEZE" is a cross-section of enchanting sounds.
"I LOVE THE WAY THE LADY WALKS " makes you envision sun,sand, and two
souls that meet and fall in love on the beach.
"MARCIA''S THEME" is a sultry samba written as tribute to LaVerne''s
sister,MARCIA. MARCIA had a phenomenal spirit and loved to travel to
"FREE AS A BREEZE" title song-is talking about the love of life. His
voice is like silk and the song is sung with great passion.
"PLATINUM SKY" is an instrumental and makes you see the beauty of the
evening sky and stars.
"HERE IN MY LIFE" lets you know that life is short and recognizes all
the things we need to do to enjoy our time on earth.
"TWO LOVERS" is an istrumental that flows softly and attest to love
between two individuals.
