In 1976, Bunny Wailer undoubtedly took stock of his career and his circumstances. In the wake of the release of "Catch A Fire," which would supposedly (and finally) begin the commercial ascendency of the Wailers, Bunny instead saw the Wailers in tatters. The political emergence of the Jamaican underclass, kickstarted by street musicians such as the Wailers, had been paid for in blood: the underclass now were being made simply to choose sides in Jamaica's near-civil war of '76-77, liberation deferred. But perhaps most daunting for Bunny was life in Kingston society as a marked man: police harassement (he did time in Kingston's notorious General Penitentiary) may have been the least of his problems. Sadly, the greatest danger probably came from his own: as Peter Tosh, Carly and Family Man Barrett, and King Tubby (all murdered in Kingston), and of course Bob (who survived when the gunmen came for him), so painfully attest, commercial success in the ghetto simply makes one a target for gangsters and gunmen.
But there was more: a deeply spiritual man, Bunny's predicament, difficult if not impossible in the secular world, would have to reconciled with Rasta doctrine. Unfortunately, this period in Jamaica witnessed the emergence of divisions between more well-to-do uptown Rastas and their shantytown brethren. It was certainly a time of false prophets, and Rasta doctrine was in confusion.
Praise Jah, Bunny Wailer was up to the task. Bunny could have simply ignored the obvious, insulated himself from Kingston society, and rested on his Wailers laurels. But Bunny came head-on. Instead of providing yet another chronicle of the drama of the moment, or choosing sides, Blackheart Man's songs are much more.

Like most of us, you'll start appreciating Bob Marley as the centralized, most public face of The Wailers. You'll study and love his music and his lyrics and his pop sensibilities. You'll read the various books chronicling his life and lyrics and you'll have a respectable collection of t-shirts and rare tracks.

Eventually, you'll become curious about Peter Tosh and learn to appreciate the steadfastness of his Pan-African political perspective and 'take no prisoners' musical approach that incorporates Rock and Blues. You'll learn to understand his deeper contributions to the original Wailers. After a few years, you'll be a learned student of Marley and Tosh.

If you are truly devoted to the subject you'll then graduate to Bunny Wailer and learn that he personifies the best of both Marley and Tosh and outshines them both with his spiritual perspective, musical voice, lyrical texture, sense of melody and the absolute 'Jamaican-ness' of the end product. You'll discover that Bunny Wailer was the true, understated ego-less visionary of The Wailers - his desire to stay in Jamaica while Marley was courting the African-American R&B audience, and Tosh was rubbing elbows with British rock stars will reveal itself as a prescient act of well-guided self-determination.

Each Wailer was perfect in their own musical right, and it would be foolish to say that any was more or less important than the others. However, as with any creative body, there's the obvious popular exoteric value and only a few will discern the less obvious esoteric qualities. What I've described above is the path to Wailers enlightenment (Bob to Peter to Bunny).

Only after considering the Wailers' canon can you call yourself a true student of The Wailers. If you're ready, start with Blackheart Man.

This is one of the top 10 recordings of all time without a doubt. All the songs have deep meanings, and if you listen quite carefully you will hear what I mean. This is Bunny's first solo effort and it is a must have. A real gem. Bob Marley actually loaned most of his band including the Barrett brothers to lay down "riddims" for this record, so the instrumentation is superb. This is a great great cd, and once you listen to it, you will listen to it over and over again. I have a 5 disc cd changer, and once I inserted this disc into it 3 years ago, it has never left. Check out the positive vibes on this disc even if you don't like reggae.

Bunny Wailer's first solo album, "Blackheart Man," from 1976 is by far his best album even if you haven't heard the others. All though his material is still spectacular, time shows him slipping more from his quality. Few of his other albums match this calibur, even if they are good.

The music here truly showcases Bunny's religious devotion and mystical mindset, particularly on the title track, his remake of "Reincarnated Souls," (originally done with the Wailers) and "Amagideon (Armageddon)". The album also showcases Bunny's lighter and happier side on "Dreamland," remake of the Wailers' single (of whom he was a member) with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh singing backing vocals.

This album is legendary and a crucial addition to any reggae collection. The album is not only Blackheart Man, it is also the best of Bunny Wailer.

You're right, this is the greatest Bunny Wailer album ever. And certainly among the greatest reggae albums of all time. The music is intoxicating: thoughtful, often poetic lyrics supported by a chorus (featuring Peter Tosh), and overlaid onto an amalgam of instruments, sounds and rhythms. Perhaps its my Catholic upbringing that draws me into these songs, with their chimes of the organ and messages of rebirth and redemption. Or maybe it's just really good music. I just have one question: Why haven't I heard these songs before?
