Overall, even though about half of this album is included on the couple of Dekker compilations I have, this is still a wonderfully laid-back and well representative slab of vinyl. And, of course, that album cover is gorgeous. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

Produced by Leslie Kong. Album The Israelites. The Israelites Lyrics. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor, poor me, Israelites. Musically, Israelites is all about Jamacian syncopation. A guitar and organ provide opening chords and counterpoints, but it’s the Jamaican reggae rhythm expressed by that jittery drummer, combined with those terrific vocals that defines the song. The song is rooted in the ideas of the Rastafarian religion, which borrows the idea of the twelve Tribes from Judaism: the Israelites. Rastafarians see Ethipoia as the home of the Falasha or Beta Israel; the home of the Lost Tribes of Israel, and they see themselves as their decendants.
