Rastaman Vibration is a reggae LPea by Bob Marley & The Wailers released on 30 April 1976.. The ElP was a great success in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to reach the top 10 on the Billboard 200 charts (peaking at number 8), in addition to releasing Marley's most popular US single "Roots, Rock, Reggae," the only Marley single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 charts, peaking at No. 51.. Synthesizers are featured prominently on this album, adding a breezy embellishment to otherwise hard-driving songs with strong elements of rock guitar.. This is one of the 3 Wailers solo albums released in 1976, along with Blackheart Man by Bunny Wailer and Legalize It by Peter Tosh..Vincent Ford was born around 1940..He used a wheelchair, having lost his legs due to diabetes. Despite his disability, he was still able to save another youth from drowning when he was a teenager.. He ran a soup kitchen in Trenchtown..The Valley of Decision is a name given to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and the scene of Jehovah's signal inflictions on Zion's enemies...Well, the Blackheart Man is a very serious fable; when we were kids, we all grew up hearing about this Blackheart Man, and we were told that you had to be careful of strangers who might walk up to you and invite you into a situation, or you might be found in the lonely countryside, or in the gullies, or anywhere that this individual might have shown up, and then he would take your heart out.. So it brought fear on all the youths of that time when they heard the name, Blackheart Man...

Jehoshaphat ascended the throne at the age of 35 and reigned for 25 years.. He spent the first years of his reign fortifying his kingdom against the Kingdom of Israel.. His zeal in suppressing the idolatrous worship of the "high places" is commended in 2 Chronicles 17:6.. In the 3rd year of his reign Jehoshaphat sent out priests and Levites over the land to instruct the people in the Law, an activity that was commanded for a Sabbatical year in Deuteronomy 31:10-31:13).. The author of Books of Chronicles generally praises his reign, stating that the kingdom enjoyed a great Measure of peace and prosperity, the blessing of G resting on the people "in their basket and their store"..The king's name in the oath jumping Jehosaphat was likely popularized by the name's utility as a euphemism for Jesus and Jehovah.. The phrase is first recorded in the 1866 novel The Headless Horseman by Thomas Mayne Reid.. The longer version "By the shaking, jumping ghost of Jehosaphat" is seen in the 1865 novel Paul Peabody by Percy Bolingbroke St. John..Another theory is that the reference is to Joel 3:11-12, where the prophet Joel says, speaking of the judgment of the dead..Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about..Jehosaphat is one of the "mighty ones" who has come down to judge the wakened heathens (or he is one of the wakened himself, thus, a Ghost)... there were anything wrong, you'd tell me, wouldn't you?..What could be wrong with our child,. Robert? We're beautiful people, aren't we?..Look, I'm not just some bystander...
