Skabeana in Soho: Alton Ellis at Gossips, London
Penny Reel, NME, 27 April 1985
ROCKING STEADILY to the dogged rhythms of Studio One spiced with ska, the crowd tonight are in appreciative mood to welcome Alton Ellis onstage, where accompanied by the solid Brimstone foundation he responds to the moment with an exacting display of songmanship. Mister Skabeana breaks no new ground here, but treads nimbly still.
