Beautiful Hymns to Positive Thinking
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 03/22/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some great stuff from the ska and rocksteady era by Desmond Dekker and the Aces. This is some really great stuff. Obviously influenced, as were most Jamaican groups of the era (1960s), by Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions. Many of these tunes such as It Pays, Keep a Cool head, Unity (the inspiration for Queen Latifah's early 1990s hit), and Young Generation, sound like upbeat hymns to positive thinking, with the Aces providing lovely background harmony to Desmond's lead and the backing of Beverly's All Stars. Of course there is also the classic "007" which is easily available elsewhere, but it certainly belongs on this collection. Good intro to Jamaican music immediately prior to what we now know as reggae. Enjoy some easy skanking with this."
