Image: 1610366 Two summers ago, Roy and Yvonne got together on a stage again
after 45 years dedicated to their personal lives away from their artistic
careers. Promoter and producer Mark Morales and Wally Caro, from
Los Angeles, were responsible for bringing Roy and Yvonne back to
where they belong, the stage, at an intimate and emotional concert
enjoyed by about a hundred people. During the following months
and until today, Roy and Yvonne continued what destiny had written
out for them since the day they were born: continue their musical
legacy worldwide. Roy and Yvonne have consolidated themselves
as generational musicians, able to adapt to changing times without
forgetting the roots or their music. They continue to please their
audiences here and there, often more committed and respectful than
their fellow islanders. No one is a prophet in his own land.
Speaking of the album, ‘Moving On’ invites us to dive deep into the
great sounds of Ska and Rocksteady music. For this occasion, Roy
and Yvonne worked with some fabulous studio musicians under the
direction of Teddy Garcia in Washington DC. Mixed by the renowned
producer Mike Mariconda, you can enjoy eight covers and two
original songs on this album that the artists have carefully selected
for your listening pleasure. The songs stand out for their intriguing
composition and arrangements adapted to Jamaican rhythms. Our
time travel commences with the first sounds in the album. The opener
shuffle ‘Surely I Love You’ is followed by ‘My Baby’ and ‘Ooh La La’.
‘My Jealous Eyes’ gives way to the lovely rocksteady ‘Someday’. ‘You
Brought Me Back To Life’ is another great Rocksteady track sung by
Yvonne Harrison. The two original songs ‘Moving On’ and ‘You Say
No’ deserve a special mention, with the former being the name giver
to the album. After this journey through different grooves, Mr. Panton
waves goodbye with the fearless reggae rhythm ‘I Dig You Baby’, he
did not have much opportunity to highlight this style in his career,
but it shows once again the courage, passion and dedication with
which he continues to exceed his fans’ expectations with new and
danceable rhythms.
‘Moving On’ is a talisman that will surely bring more and new success
to Roy and Yvonne. You hold in your hands the first studio album
recorded by the duo throughout their career. And from this day, it has
already become a classic and a collector’s item
