"During a recording career that spanned some five decades, Alton Nehemiah Ellis wrote and recorded some of the most popular and influential ska, rock steady and reggae recordings of all-time. After making his debut in 1960, the immensely talented performer swiftly established a reputation as one of Jamaica's most popular and revered artistes, recording a catalogue of hit singles, most notably for Duke Reid's famed Treasure Isle Records In 1973, a dozen of the singer-songwriter's Treasure Isle tracks were gathered on Mr Soul Of Jamaica -- a best-selling LP, which concurrently saw issue in the UK as 'Greatest Hits'. This seminal album forms the basis of this indispensable 2CD set, which also contains the remainder of Ellis's Duke Reid-produced output from the mid-sixties onwards, with the bonus material including a host of long-lost rarities and previously unissued alternate takes!"
