Jimmy "Preacher" Ellis

Two Tenors, A Tone and a Bone b/w (C'mon) Dance To The Drumbeat

An early cut from Jimmy “Preacher” Ellis’ illustrious career, “Two Tenors, A Tone and a Bone” b/w “(C'mon) Dance To The Drumbeat" is a crash course in all things blues. The Kris label single’s A-side flaunts Ellis’ rumbling baritone, accentuated by bona fide blues guitar licks and a trilling harmonica. “(C'mon) Dance To The Drumbeat" veers into northern Northern Soul territory, with driving drums that practically demand grooving and a saxophone that gallops to the Delta and back.
