Alton Ellis remains one of the greatest of all reggae singers, going back to the late '50s up to the '80s, firmly established as a slick singing sex symbol of the roots pop, rocksteady, and lovers rock styles that all started with the ska movement. Ellis was there during the whole period, singing in Kingston via the Coxsone and Studio One facilities with a small rhythm section, horns, and backup singers. While more sweet than raspy or political, some variations and covers of rhythm & blues crop up on this 30-track, two-CD reissue collection that truly encompasses the best tracks.
Black Mans Word, 02:51. Why Did You Leave, 02:36. Don't Trouble People, 03:01. Thank the Lord, 02:15.
