This Is Desmond Dekkar (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition Green Vinyl
2021 marked a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, with July 24 seeing us celebrate our 100th birthday, in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our continuing birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce this year's additions to our 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday June 18th and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
Coming hot on the heels of Desmond Dekker's 1969 international chart-topper hit, 'Israelites', the best-selling Trojan LP, 'This Is Desmond Dekkar' comprises the best of the singer-songwriter's work from the preceding two years. The album was among the first Jamaican-produced albums to breach the UK album charts, and in so doing, introduced a global audience to the sound of rock steady.
