About PUMPING IT. Original Release Year: 1970. Sometimes mistitled 'Puping In', this song original release is a bit of a mystery... As far as we can track, it was published for the first time on the 2013 compilation Alton Ellis 'Mr Soul Of Jamaica' on the Treasure Isle label and on two CD compilations on the Doctor Bird label and that's it. 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.
