Israelites is a great song. Other than that I havent`d heard much else by Dekker.

Dekker is alright, but I think as far as traditional ska goes, there are artists and ensembles better musically (Although possibly not as influential as he happened to be). But Dekker's voice was absolutely incredible.

Dekker was a pioneer, i'm sure he's turning in his grave at what 'ska' has become. Planet Smashers, Less Than Jake etc., please just quit already.

A great starting point for his stuff is the Greatest Hits package "Rudy Got Soul"...always gets a good reaction for me.
