#IsraelVibration (formed - 1978 in Kingston, Jamaica)
Cecil 'Skeleton' Spence
Albert 'Apple Gabriel' Craig
Lascelles 'Wiss' Bulgrin
"Israel Vibration consists of three young men who met in a polio rehab center. Their voices are among the holiest of Jamaican trinities. Dr. Dread of RAS Records arranged their reunion following a mid-'80s period of breakup, and reggae fans have been thanking him ever since. Ever soulful, ever sure, their voices are so close to the roots you can hear the earth itself in their blending. After debuting in 1978 with Same Song, Israel Vibration recorded steadily throughout the 1980s and 1990s, issuing three sets -- Feelin' Irie!, Israel Dub and Free to Move -- in 1996 alone."

"Culture are a #Jamaican #RootsReggae group founded in 1976. Originally they were known as the #AfricanDisciples. The one constant member until his death in 2006 was Joseph Hill.
The group formed in 1976 as the vocal trio of Joseph Hill (formerly a percussionist in #StudioOne house band the #SoulDefenders), his cousin #Albert"Ralph"Walker, and #Roy"Kenneth"Dayes, initially using the name The African Disciples. They soon changed name to Culture, and auditioned successfully for the "Mighty Two" – producer #JoeGibbs and engineer #ErrolThompson"

Various sounds by #TheGladiators, with a little tribute to the King at the end of the mix...
"The Gladiators have been masters of the #reggae arena for the past 30 years. After the rise and fall of many reggae artists and bands, they remain one of the most influential reggae groups to date. The group's original leader, #AlbertGriffiths, formed the legendary band - whose name was suggested to him on a bus by a fellow traveller who had just seen the movie "Ben Hur." The concept of men who fought for their liberty against #Babylon immediately struck a chord with Albert and remains a testament today of the difficult life and struggle of #Jamaica."
