✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The Aces007 Shanty Town (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The legendary debut LP from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – trailblazing recordings that are masterfully laid the groundwork for the international ska scene, popularizing the rude boy style and paving the way for coming reggae phenomenon that was still years down the road! Desmond Dekker's impeccable voice was always so strongly rooted on earlier soul, both Jamaican and global, and the tight rhythms under it laid down by the appropriately-named Aces is aces indeed. Includes the classic title track, "Rude Boy Train" and "Rudy Got Soul", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Keep A Cool Head", "Mother Long Tongue", "Personal Possession", "Unity" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The AcesAction/Intensified (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beverley's/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early albums from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – both done right before the Jamaican group exploded with global fame – and were completely at the top of their powers! Actually, Dekker never seemed to falter at all – and right from the start, he's tremendous – this sweet-voiced, richly soulful singer who might have been Jamaica's answer to Sam Cooke – save maybe for the sharper edge he achieves working here with his classic group. The mix of Desmond's lead and the group's harmonies are set up in rocksteady rhythms throughout – on titles that include "007", "Sabotage", "Ah It Mek", "Rude Boy Train", "Sweet Music", "Coconut Water", "Wise Man", "Intensified", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Mother Young Girl", and "Keep A Cool Head". Both albums come with loads of bonus tracks – and the 2CD set features 52 tracks in all! CD
