Press Release :
As a young teen, Delroy Wilson got his start at Studio One under the tutelage of Clement Dodd and surrounded by Jamaica's top musicians - the Skatalites and the Soul Vendors, and artists like Bob Marley & the Wailers, Alton Ellis, Marcia Griffiths, Ken Boothe, the Heptones, and other luminaries. He recorded his first songs while standing on a Red Stripe beer box, but while at Studio One, he developed into one of Jamaica's great soul singers and one of reggae music's most beloved artist and songwriter. Delroy's prolific career spanned the musical eras of ska, rock steady, and modern reggae and was only cut short when he tragically passed away in 1995.

Originally reissued on Heartbeat in 1991, this album is considered one of the key components for a great record collection per its inclusion in the book, Reggae: 100 Essential CDs (Rough Guides). Now, with extra tracks, new liner notes, and improved sound quality, 'The Best Of: Original Eighteen' returns to CD.
