Prince Alla – Lot’s Wife (Freedom Sounds)

Like Norman Grant and Vivian Jackson, Alla is one of the classic voices of the “Fire & Brimstone” Old Testament and Revelation influenced era of the 70s. This Freedom sounds reissue is one of his finest, recorded at King Tubbys, complete with a cracking dub on the reverse. A warning against temptation from the book of Genesis, telling of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, it’s a superb piece of judgemental roots that will take you back thousands of years. Go forth and buy.
