Fine roots from 1986, with a dose of Burning Spear in the singing. Produced by the Blackheart Man, favoured by Shaka.
Next Bunny Wailer installment from Dubstore Tokyo. You know the drill: silkscreened sleeves, beautiful labels, and out of this world selecting, like this limber, jazzy gem, still wiser than Solomon.
A gorgeous horns arrangement, with sublime close harmony singing, of their masterpiece of spiritualized socialism (by way of Curtis), with a typically fine Solomonic dub.
Lovely, upful roots, with signature Bunny Wailer trimmings.
The flip is a brilliant, dubwise, rare Big Youth, massive with life and creativity.
The Stepping Razor’s inspired melodica cut of Armagideon has the dreadest atmosphere of the lot.
Heavyweight, apocalyptic Bunny, with a burial b-line, burning horns, masterful dub. By a mile the best thing on Blackheart Man — and in its full glory here, and beautifully presented by Dub Store in Tokyo.
The finest of his dancehall interventions with the Roots Radics, as the eighties progressed. This is taut and simple, tough and atmospheric, triumphant.
Beautiful sufferers music, so fluent in feeling, concern and hurt — with an inspired Big Youth. Way deeper than the Blackheart Man version.
