Ellis and Parkins recorded for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One , initially in the R&B style, having a hit in 1960 with "Muriel" (from Dodd's first commercially oriented recording session at Federal studios), [11] a song Ellis had written while working as a labourer on a building site. [7] This initial success was followed by the release of "My Heaven", which like "Muriel" was a slow R&B ballad with the instrumental triplets and vocal harmonizing common to the ballads of that period. Further releases in the R&B style followed: "Lullabye Angel", "I Know It All", "I'm Never Gonna Cry" and "Yours". [7] The duo also recorded R&B tracks for Vincent Chin 's Randy's label including "Let Me Dream". The duo split after Parkins won a major talent contest and moved to the United States. [10] Ellis remained in Kingston, working as a printer and after losing his job, he restarted his music career, initially forming a new duo with John Holt . [7] When Holt joined The Paragons , Ellis formed a new group, The Flames. Ellis continued to work for Dodd and also recorded for his arch-rival, Duke Reid on his Treasure Isle label . [10] At the start of his career Ellis recorded with his younger sister Hortense ; early tracks with Hortense like "Don't Gamble With Love" (1965) were still in the R&B style.

The earliest credible evidence of coffee-drinking appears in Yemen in southern Arabia in the middle of the 15th century in Sufi shrines. [5] It was here in Arabia that coffee seeds were first roasted and brewed in a similar way to how it is now prepared. Coffee seeds were first exported from East Africa to Yemen, as the coffea arabica plant is thought to have been indigenous to the former. [6] Yemeni traders took coffee back to their homeland and began to cultivate the seed. By the 16th century, it had reached Persia , Turkey , and North Africa . From there, it spread to Europe and the rest of the world.
