BUNNY WAILER - SINGS THE WAILERS
When you check most reviews on Bunny Wailer's material, they will not speak highly of the man's rub a dub/dancehall productions that he did in 1980 and 1981.

They will say it is too lightweight, they will miss all kinds of things and usually claim that it has to do with some kind of compromise.

We completely disagree, and think that both his album "Rock 'n' Groove" as well as this one belong to the strongest episodes in the long carrier of this original member of the Wailing Wailers.

The vocal harmony group that he had formed together with Peter Tosh and Bob Marley had already been changed into Bob Marley and the Wailers, while Peter Tosh had his own success as a solo artist, too.

Bunny released a couple of Roots albums, but then in 1980 things changed. As Roots Rockers was gradually replaced by Rub a Dub (early dancehall), he introduced his own specific sound in the genre too.

And with success, as we would say!

Both "Sings the Wailers" as well as "Rock 'n' Groove" capture Bunny Wailer as he rides over extremely catchy riddims, mixed in a fresh and upfull way. 

A special way, too. 

Ten crucial tracks, of which the -equally strong- DUB counterparts can be found on "Dub D'sco volumes 1 and 2". 

No matter what the critics say, this sound leads the way!
