ISRAEL VIBRATION - SAME SONG
Israel Vibration's debut on the Reggae scene should be described and seen as a classic and the reasons for that are many.

Not only because the list of the session musicians reads like the who's who of Jamaican Reggae. Not only because of the harmony singing of Apple, Wiss and Skelly.

The story behind this album is at least as remarkable as the music it contains. For it is a document of strength and encouragement, as well.

Life wasn't friendly for the three members. Things didn't come easy and even when you struggled you might just not succeed. A situation wherein many Jamaicans find themselves. 

But things were even worse for Apple, Wiss and Skelly. As youths, they suffered from polio and therefore they were disabled. Sufferers among the suffers, you could say.

Sure, there's a little medical help available, but this too came with a price which the three men simply couldn't afford. And not just financially!

The three singers originally met in the Kingstonian "Mona Rehabilitation Center", a home for polio patients, of which they all suffered. There they had to suffer from politics too, as they were thrown out of the center because of their Rastafarian identity.

Trying to make the best out of their lifes, they soon found contact with the Twelve Tribe Of Israel Organization, who funded "The Same Song", the album we review at this page.

It's actually a spiced-up re-issue from the original vinyl album. This re-release comes with a Discomix (vocal and dub in one mix) of the title track, as well as a rare title called "Crisis", which the serious collector of Reggae music was definitely looking for.

It didn't even have to be spiced up. The music and the singing is amazing. This is as heartical as heartical can get!
