Performer Notes
  • Audio Remasterer: Simon Murphy .
  • Desmond Dekker was one of the first reggae stars to enjoy international success when his song "Israelites" became a Top Ten hit in America and Great Britain in 1969, and like many pioneering figures in ska, rocksteady, and reggae, he experienced a significant career boost in the early '80s when the Specials and the 2-Tone scene revived interest in the first era of Jamaican ska. The pioneering British indie label Stiff Records signed Dekker to a new deal, and he cut two albums for the company, which are included in full on this two-fer. 1980's Black and Dekker features Dekker accompanied by Graham Parker's backing combo the Rumour and young ska upstarts the Akrylykz (featuring a pre-Fine Young Cannibals Roland Gift), and the album finds him re-cutting several of his old hits (including "Israelites"), as well as a few other ska and reggae perennials; Dekker is in fine voice and the taut ska grooves make this a fun set suitable for dancing. For 1983's Compass Point, Dekker went into the studio with famous fan Robert Palmer as producer, and the results found Dekker experimenting with contemporary pop and reggae sounds rather than the ska and rocksteady rhythms that were his trademark. Since both Black and Dekker and Compass Point are out of print as individual titles, The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980-1983 should be a welcome find for fans eager to find either one or both of these albums. ~ Mark Deming
