In "Judge Not" and "One Cup Of Coffee" became the first recorded efforts of Marley, who retained gratitude, respect and admiration for Dekker for the rest of his life.
Eventually in Kong chose "Honour Your Mother and Father" written by Dekker and the song that Dekker had sung in his Kong audition two years earlier , which became a Jamaican hit and established Dekker's musical career. It was during this period that Desmond Dacres adopted the stage-name of Desmond Dekker. His fourth hit, "King of Ska" backing vocals by The Cherrypies, also known as The Maytals , made him into one of the island's biggest stars.
Dekker then recruited four brothers, Carl, Patrick, Clive and Barry Howard, as his permanent backing vocalists to perform with him under the name Desmond Dekker and The Aces. The themes of Dekker's songs during the first four years of his career dealt with the moral, cultural and social issues of mainstream Jamaican culture: respect for one's parents "Honour Your Mother and Father" , religious morality "Sinners Come Home" and education "Labour for Learning".
In he appeared on Derrick Morgan 's "Tougher Than Tough", which helped begin a trend of popular songs commenting on the rude boy subculture which was rooted in Jamaican ghetto life where opportunities for advancement were limited and life was economically difficult.
Dekker's own songs did not go to the extremes of many other popular rude boy songs, which reflected the violence and social problems associated with ghetto life, though he did introduce lyrics that resonated with the rude boys, starting with one of his best-known songs, " Shanty Town ". The song established Dekker as a rude boy icon in Jamaica and also became a favourite dance track for the young working-class men and women of the United Kingdom's mod scene.
Dekker was the first Jamaican artist to have a hit record in the US with a form and style that was purely Jamaican. In Dekker took permanent residency in the UK. Dekker was initially reluctant to record the track but was eventually persuaded to do so by Leslie Kong. Kong, whose music production skills had been a crucial part of both Dekker's and Cliff's careers, died in , affecting the careers of both artists for a short period of time.
In "Israelites" was re-released and became a UK Top 10 hit for a second time. Dekker had also begun working on new material with the production duo Bruce Anthony in The s found Dekker signed to a new label, Stiff Records , an independent label that specialized in punk and new wave acts as well as releases associated with the 2 Tone label, whose acts instigated a short-lived but influential ska revival. Dekker's next album, Compass Point , was produced by Robert Palmer.
Despite declining sales, Dekker remained a popular live performer and continued to tour with The Rumour. Intensified 4. Rudy Got Soul 5. The More You Live 6. Israelites Tracks of Disc 2 1. Pickney Gal 2. Pretty Africa 3. Problems 4. It Mek 5.
