I am not an expert or specialist, and just very passionate about music, probably like you ... this album was released in 1971,can be recommended to fans of exotic underground progressive and the hard rock of the '70s. The CD reissue contains the entire scarce, original LP as well as five bonus tracks from the same session.

The highly obscure psychedelic rock group from Israel began life in the late '60s as the Churchills, who produced a string of beat/psychedelic singles before relocating to England, where they changed their name to Jericho Jones and later simply Jericho. They released this sole album as Jericho Jones on A&M; it bridges the group's transition from the Churchills' fuzz psychedelic sound into the more hard rock sound they produced as Jericho.
Jericho Jones is considered to be the first and most important Rock band in Israel ever. The band founded in 1965 and was active until 1973.
Among its members: Yitzhak Klepter, Stan Solomon, Robb Huxley, Haim Romano, Miki Gavrielov, Ami Traibetch, Roni Demol, Dani Shoshan & Selwyn Lifschitz

In 1968 they had a tour in Denmark and also performed with "Deep Purple". In September 1969 the band got a recording contract at "Hed Arzi" and released their first album.
Their self-titled 1969 album actually attracted some international attention, leading the group to relocate to England in hopes of wider recognition.
In 1971 the band signed with the British record company A&M, they released their 2nd album: "Junkies, Monkeys and Donkeys".
The album is a mix of hard rock with some psychedelic moments that recall the late 60's.
This album, unlike the second LP, characterized by greater diversity, closer to the influences of time, such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, among others.

Later, shortening their name to Jerocho, in April 1972 the band teamed them with producer Ellis Elias, released its 3rd and last album, simply called: "Jericho" and is pure hard rock. Launched in 1972, the eponymous album already has a more defined. Against the fact of not being so varied, the quality we listen to a recording heavier, denser and with the exceptional quality of the band. This third album was also reissued by Repertoire, a few years ago.

Interestingly, various reviews we've seen "Jericho" as being a breakthrough progressive effort,The "Jericho Jones" or "Jericho" may not have achieved a great success in his time, but it is undeniable recognize its quality, style and great ability to create great songs. Even listening to various bands of the era, surely this Israeli band can be classified as one of the best bas-band style. His strength is fantastic instrumental, in combination a vocalist with an amazing timbre voice.

@Alex:Thank you and I cordially greet!
