Bunny Wailer - Blackheart Man Click here to see this CD at!

By Elena Oumano

Pure spine-tingling, heart-swelling inspiration from foundation Wailer Bunny Wailer (Neville Livingston)--with his ex-Wailer mates Bob Marley and Peter Tosh lending backup support on some tracks. This is one of the greatest reggae albums ever, a 1976 solo debut that virtually defines roots reggae as the musical vehicle for the "reasonings" of the amalgam of Garvey's pan-Africanism and Old Testament thunder that is Rastafari. Virtually every track elucidates Rasta "livity" and offers an intensely visceral portrait of the struggles endured by the international "sufferah dem." And it's all leavened by the Rastafarian vision of a just future world united by One Love. Reggae--hell, pop music!--doesn't get better than these 10 tracks--especially "Dreamland," "Fighting Against Conviction," "Fig Tree," and the title tune.

"Two elements separate the Blackheart man album from the vast majority of reggae alabums: its fidelity to the roots rock reggae sound and Bunny's committment to the vison of Rastafari. You cannot know or feel the mood of Rastafari and reggae music without knowing of the Blackheart man. For the Blackheart man gave authenticity to the deepest feelings of the poor, the downtrodden, and the dispossessed in the slums of the Caribbean and beyond. They understood that Bunny's voice was their voice, his pain their pain, and his hope of redemption the triumph that was theirs to come, and in Bunny's music, had already come. Those who write of reggae without knowing the sociological and spiritual context that drove this music cannot begin to understand why the Blackheart man album takes a position second to none in the annals of classic reggae albums. It is a work of genius, a genius that derives from an inspiration which is unrepeatable, and rightly so. For what is genius if it is not a unique contribution to knowledge, to art, to beauty? And that indeed is the Blackheart man."
