Delroy Wilson Selections

Like many Jamaican singers of his generation Delroy Wilson began his career at Studio One.  He cut his first record at the age of 13 singing Ska.  He went on to record throughout the rock steady and reggae eras.  The songs I'm presenting in this post were recorded during the mid to late 1970's when Delroy was working with producer Bunny Lee.  Bunny Lee's studio band was the Aggrovators and every song that Delroy sang with them was reggae gold.  Delroy Wilson died in 1995 at the age of 46.  Way to young.
