Offered for sale is an original U.S. copy of The Israelites by Desmond Dekker and the Aces, with the cover still in the original shrink wrap.
About this copy: This copy of The Israelites is an original 1969 U.S. issue on the UNI label.
The cover retains the original shrink wrap. There is a punch hole in the cover, along with a couple of staple holes.
The record is M- and appears to be unplayed.
This came out of our own collection and we acquired it new. It’s likely been played twice at the most.
A nice copy of a terrific album.
Background: Desmond Dekker (born Desmond Dacres) was the first Jamaican artist to make a dent on the U.S. charts, with the title track from The Israelites reaching #9 in the U.S. and #1 in the UK.
The album didn’t sell nearly as well, and was quickly deleted.
