Desmond Dekker recorded some of his best known songs together with his backing group the Aces (consisting of Wilson James and Easton Barrington Howard). Their debut album '007 Shanty Town' includes their single of the same name, which made him Jamaican music's first outernational superstar, reaching the 14th place in the UK charts. You'll hear how the ska music from the mid-60s is developing to the rocksteady sound. This was "ska" or "blue beat" (or its new name for the slower tempo "rocksteady"), and the lyrics come from the calypso-mento method of telling about current events in music. So in a groovy way, Desmond, James and Barry (the Aces) have given a report of love, politics, nagging women, the celebration of the Fifth anniversary of Independence, and gang warfare. This is were it all started before Desmond became the international star. Coming on 180 gram vinyl.
