Info copy from Top Ranking Sound:
Jamaican trio Israel Vibration are one of Reggae’s great vocal groups from the 1970s roots era. The trio re-formed in 1988, signed to the RAS label and set to work on a new album known as ‘Strength Of My Life’. Produced by Doctor Dread and backed by the mighty force of the Roots Radics, the I-Vibes returned to form and found a new strength and power. The Radics perfectly complement their songs, laying down bass driven rhythms to create a masterful backdrop over which the harmonies conjure up a wide spectrum of moods. Featuring on this Limited 12″ release is the crucial and perhaps more relevant to our current climate ‘Middle East’ plus ‘Greedy Dog’ with guest musician Augustus Pablo on melodica duties. Under licence and for the very first time ever with their Dub counterparts this release is one for the fans!
