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
