- ELLIS, NOEL - (LP)
LIGHT I/T ATTIC
BACK IN PRINT AFTER A DECADE!! Recorded in 1979 by studio wizard Jerry Brown for the pioneering Summer Records, Noel Ellis features six dub heavy ethereal tracks with contributions from OG reggae maestros Jackie Mittoo, Willi Williams, and Johnny Osbourne. The eponymous lost full-length evokes a transcendent majesty with its essential echo, conquering dub changeovers, and Noels impeccable mic control, giving an otherworldly twist to Summers remarkable drum and bass sound. Includes both the original version of "Dance With Me" (most recently sampled in Kanye Wests "All Day") as well as the classic "Rocking Universally," whose rhythmic influence was Willi Williams "Armagideon Time" (covered by The Clash).Noel Ellis evoked a transcendent majesty, and the albums economical performances were a blessing compared to certain overproduced recordings of the era. Tasteful keys, varied percussion, essential echo, conquering dub changeovers, and Noels impeccable mic control gave an otherworldly twist to Summers remarkable drum and bass sound. It was an end-to-end burner for midnight tokers and cool rulers alike.
