Reformed and sounding studio fresh, the vocal harmonies of the Original Aces, featuring Barry Howard and Carl St Clair plus new member Black Steel, first came to the world’s attention through their groundbreaking work with Desmond Dekker.

Desmond Dekker & The Aces were the first Jamaican reggae artists to achieved a Number 1 chart hit record in the UK and Europe with ‘Israelites’.  Hit after hit followed, including  ‘007’, ‘It Mek’, ‘Unity’ and many more, securing The Aces a unique place in Jamaican and world musical history.

“Desmond Dekker & The Aces, singing lyrics in a Jamaican patois, helped make his 1969 song “Israelites” an ode to the troubles of the poor, sold millions of copies, became the first purely Jamaican song to top the charts in the United States, and opened the ears of the world to the music of the island,” wrote Los Angeles Times journalist Jocelyn Y. Stewart.
