Ellis were a fairly short lived band running from 1972 to circa 1974 and formed by Steve Ellis, previously vocalist for Love Affair who had several chart hits towards the end of the late 60s. The most notable being their No1 UK chart success Everlasting Love, quickly followed by a series of chart singles – A Day Without Love, Rainbow Valley and Bringing On Back The Good Times. The band remained almost the same for the second album with the only change being the departure of Jim Leverton and his replacement, ex Vinegar Joe’s Nick South. Although the liner notes reveal Colin Allen recorded the drum parts for the album opener. Both releases have fully restored artwork and interestingly Riding On The Crest Of A Slump has the original liner notes. Both releases have comprehensive new liner notes by Malcolm Dome.

Early ’70s didn’t come easy for Steve Ellis whose teenage dalliance with LOVE AFFAIR had been over in 1969 and who was looking for ways to prove himself as a rock singer rather than an Everlasting Love charmer. Pianist Zoot Money struggled too, what with the closure of his fave haunt Klooks Kleek and his solo records not being very successful. So the two naturally bonded and, once Mitch Mitchell helped them secure an album deal, this band came to be and deliver two LPs, the tellingly titled Slump – produced by Steve’s landlord Roger Daltrey – the first of them.
Ellis were a combo that he put together with Zoot Money in the early 70s. Their first album - 'Riding On The Crest Of A Slump' -was produced by none other than The Who's Roger Daltrey, and it is a cracker. It features the brilliantly moody rock ballad 'El Doomo' - played a lot on Radio 1 at the time, and should've been a hi. his is one of my favourite tracks of all time, when I checked out " Riding on the Crest of a Slump" this track it blew me away! the sound of the twelve string guitar is fantastic, with roger chapman. on backing vocals who could ask.
