Israel Vibration recorded three albums; "'The Same Song'", "'Unconquered People'", and "'Why You So Craven'" before temporarily disbanding in 1981 after recording sessions for the latter were left incomplete. The three men moved to the United States to seek professional health care and escape the growing Dancehall movement in Jamaica.

In 1988, Gary "Dr. Dread" Himmelfarb, founder of RAS Records, urged the trio to reunite and record an album. Skelly, Apple, and Wiss were flown to Washington, D.C. to record a new album at Lion and Fox Recording Studios. "'Strength Of My Life'", the group's fourth album and first of 18 CD releases on the RAS label, was met with great praise and is considered one of the few post-golden era touchstones of the roots reggae genre.

See them at the Belly Up Taver with The Roots Radics and DJ Carlos Culture on Friday, August 8th.
