New from Desmond Dekker

Desmond DekkerAvailable any day now from Trojan is a strictly limited edition 7″ single release of two previously unreleased tunes by Desmond Dekker and the Aces. Only 250 are being pressed so expect this to disappear very very quickly, it should be available mailorder only via the Trojan website on or around 1 August.

Previously unreleased apparently means just that this time round; never released before in any format, either in Jamaica or the UK, the tunes Sentimental Reasons b/w Sugar And Spice are certainly new to me so unless anyone knows better, this seems to be accurate. Both are Lesley Kong productions circa 1969 with great uptempo rhythms and whilst not Dekker’s best ever vocal efforts are definitley worthy of a release. Check the sound samples below:

Sentimental Reasons
Sugar And Spice
