Description

Limited Edition LP of vintage Jamaican GOLD. Compiled by the ever trustworthy Japanese reggae resource, Rock-A-Shacka, Soul Train Is Coming collects the late Alton Ellis' lesser-known and even lost recordings, giving fans of the "Godfather of Rocksteady" a wealth of hard-to-find material in one desirable package. Big TIP!The set is bookended by the smooth-strolling highlight "My Time Is the Right Time" and "Bam Bye," the latter being a DJ take on the first tune with the singer "versioning" his own song. That rare cut alone is enough to make Ellis fans flip, but the set goes further by unearthing "Dedication" a straight-up R&B tune which finds the singer in lustful, Otis Redding mode. Also of interest is "I Don't Know Why" featuring a backing track King Tubby would later use for Dennis Brown's massive hit "Things In Life," plus two cuts from Hortense Ellis, Alton's younger sister who would often record "female"-adapted lyrics of her brother's songs. Even if there's no example of that here, great sound quality, informative liner notes, plus plenty of those 45 label photographs Jamaican music collectors cherish more than make up for it. Not an overview or introduction, but the material this set brings to light is worth any rocksteady music fans' attention.
