RIP: Alton Ellis

Jamaican music icon and Rocksteady Godfather Alton Ellis passed away at the Hammersmith Hospital Friday night at the age of 70 following a protracted battle with lymphatic cancer.  The father of Lovers Rock was experiencing a well deserved career resurgence until collapsing at London’s 100 Club back in August.  A better tribute than I could possibly manage is penned by Laurence Cane-Honeysett at the Trojan Records website.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
