You Can Get It If You Really Want" is a famous late rocksteady song written and performed by the Jamaican reggae singer songwriter Jimmy Cliff. A version was recorded by Jamaican singer Desmond Dekker, becoming a hit in its own right as a single released in a number of markets, reaching number 2 on the UK Singles Chart. It was classified as number 27 on the 1970 Year-end Chart in the UK. Jimmy Cliff - vocals. The UK's Jamaican origin reggae band The Cimarons released it as a single in 1974.

Expanded reissue of Reggae star Desmond Dekker's big selling 1970 LP on Trojan, plus some sides from his stint with Creole Records. After this success he clocked up another sizable hit in It Mek and Pickney Girl (which was the first single extracted from You Can Get I. also achieved a minor chart placing. The LP’s title track cover of Jimmy Cliff’s song (as featured in the 1972 film The Harder They Come) very nearly restored Dekker to the top of the charts, stopping tantalisingly short at number 2 in 1970. It is a reasonably straight take with some nice female backing vocals, a sonic trend that would pleasantly pervade the album as a whole. That song and another Cliff effort That’s The Way Life Goes aside, Dekker penned.

Desmond Dekker tribute act regularly performing live at significant venues around the UK through-out the year. At long last, the oversight has been addressed with this long overdue set, which is augmented by 11 bonus tracks comprising Dekker’s complete early 1970s output for Creole Records. Including three major UK chart hits in ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Pickney Gal’ and ‘Sing A Little Song’ this is a must for all fans of the much-missed singer-songwriter and of classic reggae sounds

Dekker runs through a jaunty cover of the Beatles' "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da" (who do you think the "Desmond" in the song is?) and his generosity slips a bit of the haunting, gorgeous "Wise Man" on the outro. On Disc 2, unexpected string flourishes play off the gentle ecstasy of Dekker's vocal on "Perseverance"; if this is commercialization, then it's a kind I can appreciate. Jimmy Cliff's "You Can Get It If You Really Want" is such a classic it barely needs mentioning. You Can Get It probably could have been trimmed back to a more listenable single disc. That disc is still lurking in here and it's one of the great Jamaican albums. How many of you can say the Beatles wrote a song about you?
