Just Like Uncle Freddy

I am a few days late as I as in NYC last weekend, but an Alton Ellis post is needed. He had been having a rough year battling cancer and it was his time. One of my favorite Jamaicans no doubt. His rocksteady swagger and anti-rudeboy jams get a lot of play around these parts(not that I'm anti-rudeboy). He passed away last friday in a west london hospital. You will be missed Alton.

Some Classic Alton Joints:

Alton Ellis - Can I Change My Mind
Alton Ellis - Rocksteady
Alton Ellis - Ain't That Loving You
Alton Ellis - Cry Tough
Alton Ellis - Black Man White Man
