180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Numbered, Limited Edition Magenta Vinyl - 750 Copies!

Desmond Dekker recorded some of his best-known songs together with his backing group the Aces (consisting of Wilson James and Easton Barrington Howard). Their debut album 007 (Shanty Town) includes their single of the same name, which made him Jamaican music's first 'outernational' superstar, reaching #14 on the UK charts. You'll hear the ska music from the mid-'60s developing into the rocksteady sound. This is where it all started before Desmond became the international star, famous for his international hits, such as "Israelites" (1968) and "It Miek" (1969).

007 (Shanty Town) is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on magenta colored vinyl.
