Image: 1596786 Das neue Album der Roots-Legende Israel Vibration, die dieses Jahr ihr 40-jähriges Bestehen feiert! “Play It Real” erscheint auf dem französischen Label Utopia und wurde mit Musikern der Roots Radics Band im Mixing Lab Studio, Tuff Gong Studio und im Studio des Produzenten Clive Hunt aufgenommen. Israel Vibration wurde ursprünglich 1975 als Gesangstrio von Cecil “Skelly” Spence, Lascelle “Wiss” Bulgin und Albert “Apple” Craig gegründet. Alle drei waren in früher Kindheit an Polio (Kinderlähmung) erkrankt und hatten sich in Kingston im Mona Rehabilitation Center kennengelernt. 1976 erschien die erste Single “Why Worry”, und seither sind in regelmäßgen Abständen Longplayer bei renommierten Labels wie Top Ranking, Harvest, Ras, Greensleeves, Pressure Sounds, Blue Moon, Island, Mediacom erschienen, die jeweils von äußerst erfolgreichen Tourneen begleitet wurden. Seit 1997 sind Skelly und Wiss als Duo unterwegs und werden von der jeweils aktuellen Inkarnation der Roots Radics mit dem Bandleader Errol “Flabba” Holt live begleitet.
