With his impeccable, easy phrasing, Alton Ellis was sort of the Jamaican Marvin Gaye, and he is chiefly remembered for his romantic ballads and carefully chosen pop and R&B covers, but he was also a fine songwriter, as his signature song, the impressive and moving "Cry Tough," makes clear. This set includes "Cry Tough," Ellis' earlier island hit "Dance Crasher," a great version of "Ain't That Loving You," and other sides Ellis recorded, most of them at Duke Reid's Treasure Isle Studio, between 1965 and 1968. ~ Steve Leggett
