    ‘The Cool Operator’ gathers together 28 sure shots from Delroy Wilson blending the very best of his all-conquering hit run of forty-fives for Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee alongside a handful of crucial cuts recorded at Channel One and Federal. The hits featured here like ‘Better Must Come’ ‘I’m Still Waiting’ ’It’s A Shame’ are among the defining releases of this golden age of Reggae music.

    Delroy, immortalized by The Clash in their song ‘White Man in Hammersmith Palais, had a long successful run of hits recordings with ‘Striker’ and the best of them are included on this one essential package.
