Originally released in 1976, Walls Of Jerusalem: Yabby You Meets King Tubby was a high point of several collaborations between the two, who worked together regularly throughout the ’70s.

Fiendishly hard to come by, the original has sold for approaching £1,000 on Discogs, while reissues have been few and far between.

For this edition, Pressure Sounds will pair the album – mastered from the original tape – with a series of studio mixes and outtakes, showcasing the breadth of their work together.

Walls Of Jerusalem: Yabby You Meets King Tubby is set to be released on 24th May. Pre-order a copy here and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
