The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
First ever CD issue of one of Trojan Records’ best-selling albums.
Features three major UK hits: ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Pickney Gal’ and ‘Sing A Little Song’.
Desmond Dekker tribute act regularly performing live at significant venues around the UK through-out the year.
Soon after Desmond Dekker’s ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’ had climbed to number 2 in UK’s pop chart in summer of 1970, Trojan released an album of the same title, which quickly became one of the company’s biggest ever selling long players. Yet despite its popularity, the LP has, until now, remained unavailable on CD.
At long last, the oversight has been addressed with this long overdue set, which is augmented by 11 bonus tracks comprising Dekker’s complete early 1970s output for Creole Records.
Including three major UK chart hits in ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Pickney Gal’ and ‘Sing A Little Song’ this is a must for all fans of the much-missed singer-songwriter and of classic reggae sounds.
