Album · 1976 · 10 Songs. Despite their heavy lyrics, The Oppressed Song and Rasta Man have a bluesy, bittersweet quality refined by crisp brass arrangements and earthy hand percussion. On par with Marley’s best mid-'70s work, Bunny’s solo steps were giant. Blackheart Man Bunny Wailer.
Bunny Wailer has a sweet if not powerful voice, and some of the tunes are a little lacking, but this is a crucial album, with fantastic story telling and intoxicating rhythm. My highlights are "Blackheart Man", "Dreamland", "Armagideon", and "This Train". Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. Marketplace 0 11 For Sale from €. 0.

Bunny Wailer's Blackheart Man is one of the ultimate Reggae masterpieces from the former member of the Wailers. His solo debut album is both complex as attractive and critics have been praising this record for many years. Bunny explores themes like repatriation, marijuana, and his childhood in Jamaica. The title is based on the fable of the Blackheart Man, who would take the heart out of every person he meets on his way. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Gatefold sleeve with lyrics printed on inside. Includes Blackheart Man, Dreamland and Amagideon.
This initial release is a classic roots-rock-reggae album that features alot of the Wailers (Peter Tosh, Carlton & Aston Barrett, Bob Marley) and Robbie Shakespeare, Earl "Chinna" Smith and Skatalite Tommy McCook as his backing band. Bunny's music and message was/is hard hitting, powerful and soulful, but what set Bunny's music apart from Peter Tosh's and Bob Marley's was Bunny's soothing vocals and peaceful tone. Bob could be very forceful and Peter was in-your-face, but Bunny was more laid-back in his approach.
