Reggae Wednesday

Bunny Wailer - roots reggae pioneer, original member of the Wailers, Bob Marley's stepbrother... yeah yeah yeah, we all know who he is and his standing in reggae circles. I'm not going to write any more about that. Instead, let's just have a tune.

Bunny's fourth solo album, 'In I Father's House', was a six-track effort released in 1980 in Jamaica only. A couple of years later it was given a worldwide release, though with a rearranged track order, two additional songs and a new title. Both versions of the record opened with the same track. On the original it was called Roots Raddics; on the reissue, it was dubbed Roots Radics Rockers Reggae and became the title track.

Bunny is still performing. Last year he toured performing his solo debut album 'Blackheart Man' to mark its 40th anniversary. He is one of only two surviving original Wailers. Anyone know who the other is?


  1. Love Bunny. The 'Rock 'n' Groove' LP is a big favourite in this house.
