I love Desmond Dekker. If you've never heard his music before you are in for one helluva treat. Desmond's vocals are absolutely delicious accompanied with these up-beat smooth skankin' classics. Besides Bob Marley, this is my absolute favorite from Jamaica. I don't make a habit of posting greatest hits compilations, but I'll make an exception here because this is truely a great collection.
