Product Description
 
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.
