SUNDAY COMING1
Alton Ellis (1970)

Coxsone CSL 8023
matrix: FCD 3423

Sunday Coming; These Eyes; Hurting Me; It's True; Alton Groove; What Does It Take // The Picture Was You; Gonna Take A Miracle; Your Heart Is Gonna Pay; Wide Awake In A Dream; You Made Me So Happy; Reasons In The Sky

Original Jamaican issue, mono. The front cover illustration is printed on white paper that has been stuck onto a cardboard sleeve. One of the few (only) albums to credit C.S. Dodd for photo and cover design. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

Alton Ellis' masterpiece. A rewarding mixture of self-penned material together with Alton's re-interpretations of US soul hits (mostly the latter). The CSL 8023 catalogue number suggests that this might have been intended for release in the UK as part of the blue Coxsone series.
