Reseña de álbum

Now that 40 years have passed since he first arrived at the top of the Jamaican music charts, it can be easy to forget what a popular and artistically influential singer Derrick Morgan was from the 1950s into the 1970s. There was a moment in 1960 when Morgan's recordings actually held the top seven places on the pop charts; more impressively, though, he managed to change and develop with the music, dominating the music scene throughout the ska, rocksteady and early reggae periods.
