REGGAE / SKA
SECRET RECORDS (SECBSRLP920 01)
Edition for the first time in CD and 180 gram vinyl reissue of 1969 album.
First released 1969, the year Derrick returned to England to work with the three Palmer Brothers, Harry, Jeffrey & Carl, whose Pama Records were giving Trojan Records serious competition in purveying the brand new faster, more aggressive, reggae beat not only to the expatriate Jamaican audience but also to the music’s latest adherents… the skinheads.
A number of his greatest hits from the period were included on this classic ‘Derrick Morgan In London’ album, although actually all tracks (were) produced by Derrick Morgan in Jamaica.
The set was originally released on the Pama Economy subsidiary which is rather ironic considering prices
for an original copy of this excellent album now start at £100.
