musicology #95

sixartist, sixtune, sixweekspecial #18

(Alton Ellis & Eddie Perkins – My Heaven)

last of the Alton selection..and it’s this one from the earliest days of Jamaican musicology…recorded for none other than Clement Seymour Dodd. The second of his two cuts with Eddie Perkins as the duo Alton & Eddie from 1959, (cut three weeks after his first recording ‘Muriel’)

Alton..thank you for the music.

p.s next week it’s the turn of themusicologists first musical icon..Curtis Mayfield.

  1. what a beautiful song, I’m a big fan of early
    jamaican music, I even like the slightly scratchy
    sound of the recordings…..its a simple love song
    sung beautifully.
