Sly Dunbar points out that "Gwen started Sly and Robbie's rhythm 'n' blues career and also kicked off Island's R&B department with her song & Should've Been You' in 1982. With Sly and Robbie as producers, the singer cut the rest of her debut album, simply entitled Gwen Guthrie, and the 1983 follow- up, Padlock (the title track, "Seventh Heaven" and "Hopscotch" were all hits on the R&B charts). Despite a crafty cover of the Marvelettes' "Too Many Fish in the Sea", her 1988 album Lifeline sold poorly and, even though Hot Times, the follow-up, included a duet with George Benson on "I'll Give My Best to You", Guthrie's time seemed to have passed. According to Benson, Guthrie "made you feel good about yourself. She had a very down-to-earth, down-home type of voice, but she was very articulate.

Not to be confused with Gwyneth Guthrie, a Scottish actress. Together, they wrote seven tracks on the Sister Sledge's 1975 album Circle of Love: "Cross My Heart", "Protect Our Love", "Love Don't You Go Through No Changes on Me", "Don't You Miss Him Now", "Pain Reliever", "You're Much Better Off Loving Me", and "Fireman"  . It Should Have Been You".
