Desmond Dekker - The Israelites (live)

I love this song but have never seen this totally disco-fied version. Swing it!

I distinctly remember falling in love with this song (the original) while watching "Drugstore Cowboy" on video in my parents' basement. Rad.

LOL so true!! I've heard of Desmond Dekker, but I'm not familiar with his music...I'm one of those people that hears a song but doesn't know who sings it and then if I find out years later, I'll be all surprised.."Oh! I never knew HE/SHE sung that song..." Is music edumacation available in a pill format?
