Desmond Dekker :1945 - 2006

Desmond Dekker ~ Ska King!
Desmond Dekker passed away yesterday so I thought it appropriate to post a tribute here to the man that introduced myself and countless others to the wonders of Reggae when he charted with his hits 'The Israelites' & 'Itmek'. The track here is a lesser known one taken from the Trojan Ska Box set.

Rock steady in Heaven Desmond ......
