CD Reviews

The Complete good stuff from D.D.
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 07/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD contains the COMPLETE good stuff that Desmond Dekker recorded. While most CD's of his work contain the wonderful 'Israelites," It Mek," and "OO7 Shanty Town." This is the only one that I know of that actualy includes the legendary "Sabotage" which was VERY popular in JA and the UK in it's day, but nearly impossible to find now. An added treat for DD fans is the beautiful medley "Live and Learn." Sort of a "greatest hits" collection in one tune. Desmond's heartfelt imitation of Louis Armstrong that ends that particular tune is worth the price of admission alone! Satch would have loved it and you will also."
