T he record is not perfect but then Jamaican records from the early sixties are primitive. The rumour that the vinyl sometimes came from re cycled tyres may even be true. There were only three or four studios and everything had to be done in one take. A voice both raw and beautiful comes out of the speakers. Here is a great soul singer. The song is ‘Shelter In The Storm’ and I want to know more. Dean say JACKIE OPEL played with his dad and the Skatalites back in Kingston when ska first hit and that for a few years Opel was a great star but that it didn’t last because he went home to Trinidad and never came to London like many of the early Jamaican singers such as: Laurel Aitken, Wilfred ‘Jackie’ Edwards, Alton Ellis, Owen Gray and Desmond Dekker.
