1 in stock


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.
