Alpha Blondy feat. The Wailers “Jerusalem” (HQ vinyl transfer) 1988

Alpha Blondy’s 1988 album ‘Jerusalem’ is an absolute stunner.  The album, recorded at Tuff Gong, features Alpha Blondy backed by the Wailers band, including Junior Marvin on lead guitar, Chinna on rhythm guitar, Tyrone Downie, Wire Lindo, and Touter Harvey on keys, Carlton Barrett on drums, Family Man on bass, Scully and Sticky on percussions, and the Wailers brass on horns.  The album was released in the US on Randall Grass’s Shanachie label.
