An independent Reggae label from 1977, Bam-Bam appears to have issued only a couple of singles; one of them, 'Tricked' by the Ansel & the Meditations (BAM-01) proved popular enough to merit reissuing on United Artists in 1978. Numbering was in the BAM-00s. Distributed By Mojo. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info. Alton Nehemiah Ellis  (Born September 1, 1938 in Kingston's Trench Town district. Ellis died on 10 October 2008 at Hammersmith Hospital, west London, of cancer) was a Jamaican musician best known as one of the innovators of rocksteady music and was often referred to as the "Godfather of Rocksteady". In 2006, he was inducted into the International Reggae And World Music Awards Hall Of Fame. The Meditations were formed in late 1974, when Danny Clarke left The Righteous Flames, recruiting Ansel Cridland (previously of The Linkers) and Winston Watson. After releasing singles credited to the individual members, they began recording as The Meditations in late 1976, shortly after which they released their biggest hit, "Woman Is Like a Shadow", which sold over 45,000 copies in its first month of release.
