Delroy Wilson’s rich vocal tones always added magic to any song put his way.
The ‘Cool Operator’ as he was affectionately named, after a tune he worked on
with the legendary Jamaican producer Bunny Lee. A match made in heaven as you
will hear on the album where he was put against some of the finest rhythms made
in what would be a high point in Reggae’s history, the 1970’s.

Delroy Wilson ( b.1948 Kingston, Jamaica )began his musical career at the school
that was Coxonne Dodd’s Studio One label. His first release at the tender age of
thirteen was the Lee Perry produced ‘Joe Liges’.This Ska enhanced tune gave
the young singer his first hit and the follow up single ‘Spit In The Sky’ also flew out
the record shops doors. Other hits followed including ‘One Two Three’, ‘I Shall Not Remove’
and ‘Look Back Again’ to name but a few. As the sound of reggae turn from Ska to Rocksteady,
Delroy Wilson hit with the time defining ‘Dancing Mood’ as well as other classic cuts such as
‘Once Upon A Time’, ‘Rain From The Skies’ and ‘Feel Good All Over’.

After a brief stop in 1969, Delroy began working for producer Sonia Pottinger’s Tip Top label,
again producing more hits including ‘It Hurts’ and ‘Put Yourself In My Place’. The 1970’s saw
Delroy Wilson’s arrival at producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee’s door and what would turn into a
winning formula, scoring hit after hit. It’s from this great period in Delroy’s career that we
have compiled this selection of killer tracks, cut with the drum and bass rhythm kings
themselves Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. A great dub set mixed at the legendary
King Tubby’s studio….

Hope you enjoy the set.
