Alton Ellis – Sunday Coming, Studio One 1970

R.I.P. Alton Ellis, 1938 – 2008

This afternoon I found out that one of my biggest idols has left
this world. He was known as the Godfather of Rocksteady.
Ska develloped through Rocksteady to Reggae and Alton Ellis
was there, inventing it.
This is his finest album to my opinion, it’s produced by
Cocksone Dodd on Studio One. He also recorded a lot of his
music in the Treasure Isle Studio’s. The above story, taken from
the Rough Guide to Reggae, illustrates that fact.
I have added 4 of his other great songs as a bonus.
Alton, you’ll live on in my heart forever.

tracks;

1 Joy in the morning
2 Sunday coming
3 These eyes
4 Hurting me
5 It’s true
6 Alton’s groove
7 What does it take to win your love
8 The picture was you
9 Gonna take a miracle
10 Your heart is gonna pay
11 Wide awake in a dream
12 You make me so very happy
13 Reasons in the sky
14 The winner ( ext. version )

Bonus tracks;

15 Dance crasher
16 Ain’t that loving you
17 Willow tree
18 Cry tough

  1. Sad news re: Alton…..he was a great singer and it’s very sad to hear that he has passed. Great post of Sunday Coming. I agree with you that’s one of his best, certainly my favorite Studio One lp by him. May you rest in peace Alton.

  3. Such a nice one, this Ellis.

    Really enjoy your blog which I just discovered. Great variety! For instance I very much appreciate the romanian diva shared above!

    I also tries to keep up a wide variety over at my blog – http://www.jonosaudio.blogspot.com – with mostly oldies and goodies but also new and groovy stuff.

    Recently I posted an unorthodoxical reggae comp and in the coming days I will post a comp of swedish jazz ranging from 1968 – 2008. I would be honoured if you would pay me a visit!

  5. I found your blog for about one week ago and I must say I like it very much! Thanks for all the work you do, to make all this out of print music? available for a die hard reggae and african music fan like me. Must admit, it feels a little bit strange, to download all this lovely music for FREE! In some way or another I should like to pay the artists for all the music I download …..Mixed feelings about this ….

    Once again, Thanks Moos

  7. Moos,
    I agree this one beeing the best Alton Ellis record. A great voice meets that very special Studio One groove. Thanks for publishing!

    By the way:
    I feel free to purchase all these wonderful records, if I am lucky enough to get them somewhere at an acceptable price.
