Product Description:

This excellent collection finds the celebrated reggae vocalist Alton Ellis trading time in the spotlight with his sister, Hortense Ellis, one of reggae's more overlooked female singers. Beginning with his first recordings, Alton Ellis was one of the key links between American soul music of the 1960s and Jamaica's contemporaneous rock-steady movement. He and his sister are the Jamaican counterparts to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell in Detroit or Otis Redding and Carla Thomas in Memphis. The list of soul classics here given the Studio One version treatment ("Can I Change My Mind," "Breakfast in Bed," "People Make the World Go Round") makes the link to the U.S. all the more apparent, but it's Hortense and Alton's lilting, soulful vocals (which unfortunately are brought together on only one track) that truly the illustrate the bond between reggae and American R&B. Rounder's 2006 reissue of the collection, originally titled ALTON & HORTENSE ELLIS, includes four extra tracks, most notably the title track, which features Hortense and Alton together.
