Alton Ellis, the sweet-voiced giant of Jamaican music, put the Treasure Isle label on the map with his buoyant, soaring vocals, dancing along the grooves of the label's greatest hits. Cry Tough is crammed full of classics like 'Ain't that Loving You,' 'Breaking Up,' 'Willow Tree,' 'Can't Stand It,' and 'Baby I Love You,' and the title track. Also includes some outright soul takes of songs like 'I'm Just a Guy.' All songs were taken from the original Treasure Isle master tapes, whose long-lost delights shed new light on Alton's history-making career.
