Desmond Dekker

YOU CAN GET IT IF YOU REALLY WANT: EXPANDED EDITION

Doctor Bird



cd

Released: 13th Jul 2018

£11.99


ISSUED on CD for the first time ever, this features three of his major UK hits: ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Pickney Gal’ and ‘Sing A Little Song’ and is augmented by 11 bonus tracks comprising Dekker’s complete early 1970s output for Creole Records.

Soon after Desmond Dekker’s ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’ had climbed to number 2 in UK’s pop chart in summer of 1970, Trojan released an album of the same title, which quickly became one of the company’s biggest ever selling long players. Yet, despite its popularity, the LP has, until now, remained unavailable on CD. this is a must for all fans of the much-missed singer-songwriter and of classic reggae sounds.
