    "Born Desmond Dacres in 1943, this awesome performer began his career almost by chance due to his very low profile and shy character which made him keep his day job for a while in his early days, fearing he could not make it in the music business. Instead he soon began recording for the famed Beverley's label of former ice cream parlour owner Leslie Kong who allegedly stopped a rehearsal session to hear this new talented singer who was rumoured to have won several singing contests at various dancehall Saturday nights. This double LP set presents all the major successes by Dekker, both as solo singer and with the Cherry Pies and the Four Aces (then just Aces) from 1963 to 1968. 46 classic hits from one of the most beloved rocksteady legends."
