007 (Shanty Town)
- Desmond Dekker and The Aces

Call me snobbish but I feel certain genres of music should be mixed like how they were done originally. Specially early rocksteady, ska, probably some jazz. It just sounds that much better. Just good melodies and words. I'm fascinated by the rudeboy and soundsystem culture from that period. This track by Desmond Dekker and The Aces is one of those that could just get you up and moving. The rhythm overlaying the political overtones of that period, laced with sharp clothes.

Got to give a shout-out to Wan Vegan for the the times Straits Records listening to these great tracks.
