Volym 2 (Prim LP 570.650) 1980 Sweden *
These are the original Swedish pressings of Jerusalem’s first two albums with all lyrics sung in Swedish. If there’s any difference in the instrumental backing from the US releases it didn’t stand out to me. Still the boys seem to sound much more at home in their native tongue. ‘Jesus Is The Most Fantastic’ is ‘Jesus Ar Det Underbaraste’, ‘Daddy Who Has Made’ is ‘Pappa Vern Har Gjort’, ‘High Tide’ is ‘Hog Tid’. The debut includes an extra track that didn’t make it on the US Volume I release: a harmonica boogie rocker called ‘Fangsang’. Cover is the more or less the same as the Lamb & Lion version, right down to that inner sleeve pic of Ulf screaming his head off. Volym 2 also has the same front pic as the US version, but the Prim issue comes in a superior gate-fold cover. Track these babies down and experience your Jerusalem closer to the source.
