1960s / The Israelites-Desmond Dekker
Desmond Dekker (July 16, 1941 — May 25, 2006) was a Jamaican ska and reggae singer and songwriter. Together with his backing group, The Aces (consisting of Wilson James and Easton Barrington Howard), he had one of the first international Jamaican hits with "Israelites". Other hits include "007 (Shanty Town)" (1967) and "It Miek" (1969). Before the ascent of Bob Marley, Dekker was one of the most popular musicians within Jamaica, and one of the best-known musicians outside it. n 1968 Dekker's "Israelites" was released, appearing on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Charts, and eventually topping the latter and (in June, 1969) peaking in the Top Ten of the former. He was the first Jamaican performer to enter U.S. market with pure Jamaican music, though he never repeated the feat.
