Bunny Wailer - Amagideon / Amagideon Dub

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

¥2180 (US$19.36)

Briefly available on a 12" Island single in the UK to promote Bunny's 'Black Heart Man' album but this is the first time it has been coupled with the awesome Sylvan Morris and Karl Pitterson mixed dub version that first appeared on Bunny's criminally neglected 'Dub D'sco' album. Here we have a totally different mix demonstrating the strength and ability of this authoritative rhythm to take any amount of interpretations. 'Amagideon' was also versioned by Augustus Pablo for his seven inch Message release 'Pablo's Armageddon'.

BUY

Wailers - Battering Down Sentence / Version

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1974

¥1280 (US$11.37)

One of the many spiritual and cultural classic lyrics that Bunny Wailer has written, and this is an exclusive single take. The lyrics - written soon after he was arrested due to the possession of Marijuana, can be heard as “Fight Against Conviction” on one of the most important roots reggae album to date, Blackheart Man, although this recording is an early take released in 1974 by the Wailers.

BUY

Bunny Wailer - Bide Up / Bunny Wailer, Big Youth - Bide

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1975

Bide Up

¥1480 (US$13.14)

Bunny followed 'Search For Love' with 'Bide Up' another emotional tour de force and with a message so different that it takes a while to fully assimilate. He would later recut the song for his classic solo debut album 'Black Heart Man' but this is the original cut in all its glory. The B-side features one of the two Big Youth versions to the song and the Youth is at his peak here as he reinforces Bunny's message with own his plea for greater understanding: "Be unto one another like a man to a brother…"

BUY

Bunny Wailer - Rasta Man / Version

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

¥1280 (US$11.37)

A classic Rasta Man song sung by Bunny Wailer, the most devoted Rastafarian out of all the Wailers. This unforgettable Rasta Man Anthem was released just before one of the most important roots reggae album to date, Blackheart Man dropped. Unlike the original release, this single take is backed with a dub cut.

BUY

Temporarily sold-out. Uncertain delivery time

Bunny Wailer - Rise & Shine / Solomonic Dub

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1981

¥2180 (US$19.36)

Bunny continued to release records throughout the seventies that were never less than excellent and, as the new decade got underway, he came forward with one of his best ever releases: the militant clarion call 'Rise And Shine'. Stretched over two momentous sides of a UK twelve inch release, the record was a huge hit, but has been unavailable ever since. Bunny returned to the song on his superb 'Liberation' album at the close of the decade but the original cut has remained one of the most in-demand records on the 'revival' circuit.

BUY

Bunny Wailer - Rule Dancehall / Rule Dancehall Version

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1987

¥1480 (US$13.14)

Bunny produced a string of hits during the dance hall explosion of eighties where, backed by The Roots Radics, he continued to show the new generation how it should be done. The greatest of his dance hall style records was the self explanatory 'Rule Dance Hall' from 1987 originally released on the album of the same name and subsequently issued as a seven inch single. "East, west north and south I rule the land. I play original style while others play version…"

BUY

Bunny Wailer - Searching For Love / Tuff Gong All Stars - Must Skank

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1974

¥1480 (US$13.14)

The first release on Bunny's Solomonic label was the reflective and ambitious 'Search For Love' credited to 'Heat, Air & Water'. Bunny sings this yearning song beautifully, the mournful horns play a variant on the traditional 'Waltzing Matilda' melody and an early incarnation of the I Threes provide the harmonious backing vocals.

BUY

Johnny Scar - United Africa / Dub It In Africa

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1986

¥2180 (US$19.36)

Bunny Wailer, respectfully called “The Blackheart Man”, produced Johnny Scar’s one-off recording ‘United Africa’. The mystic singer wrote this heavy roots song and sang with his unique chant like a voice of the roots reggae icon, Burning Spear. And the song appeared as 12”on the Solomonic Production imprint in 1986.

BUY

Peter Tosh, Solomonic Reggae Star - Anti-Apartheid / Solomonic Reggae Star - Solidarity

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

¥1480 (US$13.14)

Peter Tosh was the first reggae artist to realise the limitless possibilities of the melodica (listen to the Wailers' first Tuff Gong release 'Sun Is Shining') and here he adds its haunting power to one of Bunny's best ever rhythms the prophetic 'Amagideon' from 'Black Heart Man'. The melodica phrases and the subtle, restrained mixing on both sides of this single bring out all the brooding introspection and mystery in the track.

BUY

Wailers - Arabs Oil Weapon / Dubd - Version

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

¥1480 (US$13.14)

Prophetic, thought provoking and deeply disturbing Bunny pulls no punches on this release… nearly thirty five years later very little has changed. The chilling version echoes and expands the theme.

BUY

Wailers - Dream Land / Dubd Version

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

¥1280 (US$11.37)

In 1966, Bunny Wailer started singing spiritual lyrics before anyone else, and this masterpiece he sung about returning to Africa was written while he was still recording for Studio One. Although it was originally recorded for Studio One, it has never seen the day of light. Then Lee Perry recorded it again and released in 1971. This particular take was recorded especially for the album in 1976 and released from Island Records UK as a single.

BUY

Wailers - Life Line / Big Youth - Black On Black

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1976

B: Bide Up

¥1480 (US$13.14)

'Life Line' a gentle, haunting love song showcasing Bunny's sublime vocals over a subtle, restrained rhythm encapsulates in just over two minutes more than many lesser artists manage to express over an entire double album. Big Youth’s plea for tolerance and understanding, one of his two essential cuts of Bunny’s 'Bide Up', was originally released as a double sided single and is one of the hardest to find records on the Solomonic label. Search no more…

BUY

Wailers - Pass It On / Trod On

Solomonic / Dub Store Records JPN 1978

¥1480 (US$13.14)

A radically different take to one of the standout tracks on 'Burnin' the final Wailers album to feature the original line up of Bob, Peter & Bunny. The lyrics are profound without a hint of pretension "Be not selfish in your doing…" and the rhythm runs at a sprightlier pace than the album version. A third version exists with Bob Marley taking the opening verse but this is surely the definitive cut of a truly classic song. "Live for yourself you will live in vain…"
