Product Description

·A legend in Jamaican music, Desmond Dekker was the island’s first ‘outernational’ star, scoring huge hits in the late 60s with the likes of ‘007’, ‘It Mek’ and ‘Israelites’.

·This 2-CD set boasts all of Desmond’s recordings for Stiff between 1980 and 1982, including two albums plus stray B-sides and a brace of exclusive tracks from the rare ‘Hot City’ 12”. This was a successful period for Dekker, who enjoyed renewed popularity on the back of the 2 Tone movement.

·The majority of these recordings are currently unavailable on CD. In fact, the two albums have only been issued before as rare Japanese imports!

·Black And Dekker was self-produced with help from Vic Keary and Stiff boss Dave Robinson and engineered by the likes of Sid Bucknor (like Keary, a Trojan Records veteran). The album boasted reworkings of several of his classic 1960s singles. Also included here is ‘Juliet’, which was omitted from the UK/European edition.
