WAILING  SOULS

Talk about a triple threat: first you have the (by this point well-established and effortlessly professional) Wailing Souls, one of the greatest of the cultural harmony groups; then you have the Roots Radics, the studio band that almost single-handedly defined the new dancehall reggae sound in the early '80s; and to make everything perfect, you have the unassailable team of producer Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes (who can claim equal status with the Roots Radics as a dancehall pioneer) and engineer Hopeton ‘Scientist’ Brown. The result is 1991's firehouse Rock, one of the finest reggae albums of all time; one which combines the Wailing Souls top-notch songwriting and harmony singing with the absolute best in studio accompaniment.
