I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

Latest update on 16/08/2018

Artist: Alton Ellis
Author: Alton Ellis
Label: Studio 1
Year: 1967

Produced by Coxsone Dodd. On his lp Sings Rock & Soul (on the 7-inch label spelled: I Am Still In Love). The riddim is all Alton Ellis' (and the Studio One houseband to boot) and that riddim inspired Trinity and Althea & Donna. Nothing gets spilled in the third world.
