CD Reviews

Long Live Desmond
Dave | Clover-tucky | 05/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Desmond Dekker was turned down in his first few attempts at breaking into the Jamaican music industry...thankfully for us he found Leslie Kong and Derrick Morgan.
Desmond brought Jamaican Music to the world well ahead of Bob Marley (Isrealites), and is a must for any collector. His early music is an outstanding example of the music that would eventually become Reggae (Ska and Rocksteady).
Anyway, Desmond just passed this week after 40 years of bringing music to the people- he will be missed...do yourself a favor and aquaint yourself with him quickly"
A Nice Collection

"
I find that really good reggae/ska collections are few and far between. This is one of them. There are some really nice pieces on this, such as: KING OF SKA, JESERINE, GET UP EDINA, 007, PERSONAL POSSESSION, MOTHER LONG TONGUE, PRETTY AFRICA, A IT MEK, COCONUT WATER, WRITING ON THE WALL and others. The man was quite prolific. FYI, it doesn't have his biggest hit: Israelites.

You get 46 songs for under $20. So, even tho a few are not among his best, there are plently to make it worthwhile."
