More Info:

Conscious and idealistic, the songs composing Gone Are the Days point to a better way to live, to a better world. "This CD, what it's really all about to me, is bringing things out that haven't been said," says Israel. "This is not a religious album. I'm just trying to promote the truth, and hopefully other people will want to hear it."

Reviews:

If ever there was proof of the universal power and appeal of reggae music, it's Gone Are the Days, the striking debut album from rising reggae star Joseph Israel.

Featuring sweet reflections of love, gripping, headline-torn news reports, moving tales of spiritual awakening and affecting calls for unity, Gone Are the Days is the first album from the Tulsa, Oklahoma-born, Arkansas-based singer, whose voice has for the past three years teetered on the edge of broader recognition.

Recorded in Kingston, Jamaica, at the fabled Tuff Gong studios (birthplace of iconic albums by Bob Marley and his sons), as well as Shaggy's Big Yard Studio, among others, Gone Are the Days features the stamp of approval from some of the genre's heavyweights: The disc features collaborations with leading second-generation roots reggae artist Luciano ("Ruff Times) and Mikey General ("Universal Love"), as well as the smooth voices of Erica Newell and Rochelle Bradshaw (backing vocalists for Ziggy Marley and Luciano, respectively).
