To pick a truly essential Desmond Dekker collection from the myriad best-ofs, box sets, and period anthologies that dot the musical landscape would be almost impossible; many of the Dekker compilations currently on the market are practically interchangeable in terms of both content and sound quality. There are the songs of Biblical warning ("Honour Your Mother and Your Father," "This Woman"), the rude boy anthems ("007 (Shanty Town)," "Rude Boy Train"), the topical admonishments ("Keep a Cool Head," "Unity"), and, of course, the immortal "Israelites," which introduced most of North America to the ska sound.

The Cherry Pies's The Best of Desmond Dekker album. The Cherry Pies Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.

Desmond Dekker was the first Jamaican reggae artist to break through in the United States, when his powerful and anthemic tune "Israelites" rose to number nine on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart in 1969

He collaborated with The Specials on the 1993 album, King of Kings, which was released under Desmond Dekker and The Specials. King of Kings consists of songs by Dekker's musical heroes including Byron Lee; Theophilus Beckford, Jimmy Cliff, and his friend and fellow Kong label artist, Derrick Morgan. He also collaborated on a remix of "Israelites" with reggae artist Apache Indian Dekker died of a heart attack on 25 May 2006, at his home in Thornton. Greatest Hits (1988) – Streetlife. The Best of & The Rest of (1990) – Action Replay. Music Like Dirt (1992) – Trojan. Rockin' Steady – The Best of Desmond Dekker (1992) – Rhino. Crucial Cuts (1993) – Music Club.

So this collection contains the important international hits of Desmond Dekker, together with the best of his other recordings. It would take a lot more than a single CD to include all his Jamaican hits, but this is enough for most people. But enough of that rant. As for Desmond Dekker, if you only need a single album this is the one to pick up. Every song is a classic, showcasing his emense songwriting talents.

Dekker veritably disappeared from view for the rest of the decade, with only Trojan's 1987 Officially Live and Rare album breaking the drought, which was recorded during an enthusiastic live club appearance in London. A new version of "Israelites," utilized in a Maxell tape ad, brought the singer back into public view in 1990. The following year, Dekker released King of Ska, again featuring re-recordings of past glories. Two years later, he entered the studio with an equally revitalized Specials for the King of Kings album. In 1996, Moving On appeared, not one of Dekker's best. However, the Trojan label has continued to keep the singer's back catalog to the fore. Beginning back in 1974, when they released the humorously titled Double Dekker, across Sweet 16 Hits (1978), The Original Reggae Hitsound in 1985, and 1992's Music Like Dirt, there's never been a dearth of excellent Dekker material for fans to revel in.
