This digital transfer got such a huge response on SoundCloud that I thought it was worth sharing here. “Yitzhak Rabin” from the album of the same name. My favorite Alpha Blondy tune since “Jerusalem.”
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.
