Trojan Essential Artist Collection
Trojan 608 - 2 LP set on limited Violet Transparent vinyl 

The original King of Reggae, Desmond Dekker introduced the sound of Jamaica to the world at large through a series of international hits, with his music gracing the UK pop charts on no less than 7 occasions between 1967 and 1975. This incredible run of hits included, ‘007’, ‘It Mek’, ‘Pickney Gal’, ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Sing A Little Song’ and the first Jamaican produced recording to top the British 7” singles listings, ‘Israelites’. All of these essential recordings feature on the ‘The ‘Essential Artist Collection’, which also includes the very best of his remaining work, with almost every track a major Jamaican best-seller. This collection is the latest in Trojan Records’ new stylishly designed series showcasing the most popular and influential recordings of some of Jamaican music’s most celebrated performers. And, as expertly demonstrated by this superb compilation, few reggae artists were more influential and celebrated than the legendary Desmond Dekker.
