Pancho Alphonso & The Revolutionaries – Never Get to Zion

The under-recorded Pancho Alphonso served as both producer and vocalist for his Never Get to Zion set which saw the Revolutionaries backing him at the legendary Channel 1 studio in Kingston, JA. This set, from 1978, was the only full length he recorded and only a few other 7″s and 12″s can be found under his name. Disappointing as his voice shines atop these Roots riddims leaving one to wonder what could have been. This platter stayed on my turntable for months upon months in 2011 and, after writing this post, it is time to serve it up again!
