Swedish rockers Jerusalem began their long and varied career as a blues-rock band. Their translations to English and pronunciations were a bit awkward at this point in time, but the music is fairly fun and glad spirited, ranging fiom the loud blues jamming of ‘If You Only Care To Listen’ to the sofler moods of ‘Come To Me’. Chief songwriter Ulf Christiansson provides lead guitar and vocals, while Dan Tibbel’s organ adds some classic rock touches. They’d go on to do much greater things than the average material presented here (their early ‘80s Deep Purple derived hard rock classic Warrior comes to mind) – still tracks like ‘Jesus Is The Most Fantastic’, ‘Daddy Who Has Made’ and ‘Mr. Ego’ consistently manage to put a smile on my face. Originally released in Sweden on the Prim label. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
