Synopsis

Album Description
Years before Bob Marley had made his mark as an international artist, Desmond Dekker was the undisputed King of Reggae. His first cross over hit, "0.0.7. (Shanty Town)" became the first Jamaican produced single to reach the UK top twenty. Two years on, "Israelites" proved even more popular when it became a number one hit around the world. These two sides, along with successful follow ups UK "It Mek", "Pickney Gal" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want", are featured on this 50 track 2 CD set tracing the output of the Third World?s first superstar, from his debut disc to his most recent recorded work.
