The Wailing Souls have a lot in common with Bob Marley. First they are from the infamous ghetto Trenchtown. Second their lead singer Winston "Pipes" Matthews was too a pupil of Joe Higgs. Lastely, they produced some of the most heartfelt reggae of the 70's. This best of collection covers the Wailing Souls work from the 70's throught the mid 80's. Some classics here are "War" "Bredda Gravalicous" and "Fire House Rock". Besideds those songs ALL the other songs are solid as well. While The Wailing Souls prime was in the 70's they are still making great music in the current time. They just released Equality which is another good choice.

This disc pays for itself after the first few tracks. Really nice vocals and instrumentation, great roots reggae! Jah Give us Life and Bredda Gravalicious are worth the price of admission alone. The rest of the disc is great to. It has a real smooth Dub feel to it which complements the relaxed yet passionate vocals. Highly reccomended.
