    • Alton Ellis – Knock On Wood
    • 1. Pumping In
    • 2. Knock On Wood

    Never released before on 7”

    This cracking up-tempo track from 1970 has a heavy guitar work, a killer organ and some real gutsy vocals to boot.The sound and rhythm are quite different from Ellis previous songs and, sign of time, have a distinctive Boss Reggae feel and it really rocks! “Pumping In” is an absolute gem that has been badly overlooked up to now. 1972 "Knock on wood", the Eddie Floyd mega hit, has been covered several times by Alton previously, in a brilliant but rather conservative way. This version though was produced by Joe Gibbs and is totally different. It featured on 2 compilations LPs in 1969 and 1973 but was never issued on a 7" vinyl previously. In the same vein as "Pumping In" but slower, this killer track is a rough, tough reggae cover of the Soul anthem featuring unbelievable vocals from Alton, and a distinctly Boss Sound production from Joe Gibbs. A Must Have..
