Israel Vibration are three crippled lads (victims as babies of the late-50s polio epidemic in Jamaica) who grew up together in a Kingston residential rehabilitation centre. Kicked out into the streets of Kingston for being Rastafarians, they spent five years singing for food on the streets.
From being destitute on the streets of Kingston then, to the ecstatic energy of "Walk The Streets Of Glory" - "We gonna walk the streets of glory", they sing, exploiting the potential of roots harmonising to the full. The album is worth buying for this song alone, but there is lots more. The beautifully melodic "Why Worry", for example, the groups debut single, offers an alternative to the health-destroying materialism of our age: "I scratch my nuts and then I say: why worry? why worry, when you can pray?" The uplifting quality of the group's music is also strongly present in the beautiful "Lift Up Your Conscience" and the harmonies again are stunning.
"The Same Song" is a unique album, with three very distinctive voices combining beautifully to create a very special sound.

Israel Vibration are a three piece band that met after being struck down by the polio epidemic that hit Jamaica at the end of the 1950's. Overcoming their afflictions, Lascelles "Wiss" Bulgin, Albert "Apple" Craig and Cecil "Skelly" Spencer came together to create a masterpiece of rock steady reggae. Look out for the last track - a dub mix of "Crisis"...brilliant!
Pump it up and chill out!

When I purchased this album, on vinyl, nearly thirty years ago, I had no idea of its significance at the time.To me it was a rather strange mixtue of Nyahbingi music combined with roots riddims.Like a good wine it has matured well over the years to the point that it now stands as a true roots classic.It is difficult to pick a favourite track as the strength of the material is so apparent but I thinbk I would pick 'I'll Go Through'as a testamant to the commitment to rastafari at the time.This really is a special moment in the history of reggae where the world became aware that a conscious band could sell conscious lyrics and people would buy it!
At any price (despite the heavy discount ) an essentail purchase for any roots reggae fan!Beleif mi na!
