Desmond Dekker, R.I.P.

I've just recently become a big Desmond Dekker fan. Just wednesday I was out having a pint, chatting with a member of Mustard Plug and his name came up. Dekker's reggae was a simple yet infectious sound infused with a refeshing optimism. Check out his hits "Israelites," or "0.0.7. (Shanty Town)." Itunes has a good comp called "Desmond Dekker: Israelites - The Best of Desmond Dekker," which was released by reggae giant Trojan records and features 25 lovely Dekker tunes. Well worth your ten bucks. I'll listen today and feel good.
