Desmond Dekker & The Aces. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor me, the Israelite, ah. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor me, the Israelite. My wife and my kids, they pack up and leave me Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen Poor, poor me, the Israelite. Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are go I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde Poor me, the Israelite

This issue uses numeric side indicators (1, 2), other uses alphabetical (One, Two). I'm a little embarrassed to admit this is the only 'proper' Desmond Dekker album I own (I have a couple collections and his album with The Specials), but for that it's a perfect little bundle of work. Featuring the opening title track, the classic 'Israelites,' as well as other top numbers like 'Rude Boy Train,' 'It Mek' and 'Nincompoop,' this album is largely material written by Dekker himself and producer Leslie Kong

Album: The Best Of Desmond Dekker (1969). Charted: 1 9. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Dekker (born Desmond Dacres) was raised in Kingston, Jamaica and trained as a welder before singing. He formed the Aces and teamed up with hit producer Leslie Kong in 1966 (with whom he worked until Kong's death in 1971). He has over 20 Jamaican hits and 2 other UK Top 10 hits: "It Mek" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want. He enjoyed a revival in the UK in the early 1980s thanks to the two-tone movement. Dekker died of a heart attack in 2006 at age 64. More songs from Desmond Dekker & the Aces. More songs from 1969. Lyrics to The Israelites

Desmond Dekker has been well served by the reissue labels, with the shelves buckling under all the compilations dedicated to his music. The bulk, however, invariably draw from the same limited pool of songs, with most ignoring the singer's early years entirely. One of the best one-disc roundups around, the compilation top-loads the set with Dekker's international hits (the only one missing is 1975's "Sing a Little Song"), with the other 20 tracks drawn willy-nilly from the Kong years (1963-1971). There's no attempt at chronology - and ska numbers rub shoulders with reggae tracks - nor any sense of sequencing, so the tempos and moods shift dramatically at times.

Fun to see the original label spinning but B side is edited and reverted recent version, not the original instrumental, as I was hoping.
