Despite heated protests from his parents, Alpha Blondy abandoned his studies in education to establish himself as a singer, a move influenced by his discovery of the Rastafarian faith and the music of international reggae star Bob Marley. A longtime dream was fulfilled in 1986 when, five years after Marley's death, the singer's backing band, the Wailers, supplied the rhythms for Blondy's third album. Recorded in Jamaica, Jerusalem remains one of Blondy's most satisfying song collections. Lyrics alternate among English, French, and Blondy's own Dioula, a mix the singer.

It was his 4th album in 3 years, and perhaps Blondy needed a rest. Whatever the reason, "Jerusalem," despite its title track, lacks the fire that its predecessor did. It is still a fairly good album, but "Apartheid is Nazism" is the quintessential Alpha Blondy lp. "Jeruslaem" will be appreciated by long time Blondy fans (as I a. .I have grown to appreciate this lp) for the effort given, but newer fans should stick to "Apartheid Is Nazism".
Recorded in Jamaica, Jerusalem remains one of Blondy's most satisfying song collections. Lyrics alternate among English, French, and Blondy's own Dioula, a mix the singer attempts to unite through the rhythms of reggae music. Aiding him in his pursuits are some of the island's finest. Under Bob Marley, the seasoned rhythm team of brothers Aston and Carlton Barrett (bass and drums), Junior Murvin (guitar), and Earl Lindo (keyboards) refined reggae music to the slick, near-universal pulse Blondy was seeking. Though their former mentor's success distanced the Wailers somewhat.
