    “Sledgehammer-heavy masterpiece of underground British rock!” - Classic Rock Magazine

    “Big fat chords, wailing guitar, punch-drunk bass and straight-ahead solid drums all strutting in your face like some massive guy you just don't want to f**k with.” - Head Heritage

    "I made the record because they are bloody good and it seems a shame for their sound not to be recorded... right now there's a rawness and excitement..." - Ian Gillan, in Disc & Music Echo, January 29th, 1972

    Official 2024 vinyl reissue of this epic heavy UK hard rock album from 1972, produced by Deep Purple's legendary frontman, Ian Gillan, and originally released on the Decca/Deram label. It was Gillan who said of Jerusalem: “Not many bands really excite me. But this one’s so raw and completely unpretentious. They make the biggest, bloodiest noise you can imagine, tempered with moments of extreme emotion.”

    And, of course, he’s right—the music is a menacing combination of over-the-top vocals and screaming lead guitars that sounds ahead of it's time, yet clearly drenched in the rough, heavy sound of the early 70s UK underground. Jerusalem’s music could easily pass for something from the early British heavy metal scene — or something from the emotional hard core scene of the mid-1990's (the blistering throat-shredding raw emotion of 'Primitive Man').

    A favorite among vinyl collectors, the album is presented here in its ultimate glory, with all tracks direct from the original master tapes, housed in a high quality replica gatefold cover. Insert has liner notes written by bassist Paul Dean + rare photos.

    Highly recommended for fans of groups like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Leaf Hound, Iron Claw, Toad, Buffalo, Zior, Horse, Incredible Hog, Dogfeet, Elias Hulk, Ginhouse and the like. Rough, raw, and doomy!
