Produced by Leslie Kong. Album The Israelites. The Israelites Lyrics. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor, poor me, Israelites. Aah. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor me, the Israelite. Musically, Israelites is all about Jamacian syncopation. A guitar and organ provide opening chords and counterpoints, but it’s the Jamaican reggae rhythm expressed by that jittery drummer, combined with those terrific vocals that defines the song.

Complete your Desmond Dekker collection. referencing Israelites, LP, Album, 73059. 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.

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.
