Israelites - Desmond Dekker 1968

We've always loved this song. Just for the overall vibe. It was the first 'ska' record to hit internationally and reached the US top ten in 1969. Written and recorded by Desmond Dekker out of Kingston, Jamaica, the lyrics about a dude working hard for not enough money still ring true.
