    This is the kind of African performance I really dig. Thanks for sharing.

      Rick,
      You are most welcome. It is one of my favorites.

      Kat, this is a great pick – I tend to associate Desmond Dekker with The Israelites, which had a significant impact on its release in 68/69 and became the theme tune of the Skinheads.

        Thanks, my dear Hedley

        I heard this song a long time ago and had to hunt in pieces for the title and the group. I was glad when I finally found it. I didn’t know of his later group, the Israelites.

        A horrible legacy that your song becomes the theme of the Skinheads.
