“The Israelite” – Desmond Dekker

The very first introduction to reggae in popular music. The lyrics were very difficult
for the audience to understand but that didn’t affect the success of this one. Wiki says
that Dekker wrote the song after overhearing a couple in public arguing about money.
Lou really cuts a groove on this one like coming down the Garden State Parkway in an
aircraft carrier.
