The veteran roots reggae duo return with  'Back A Yard' (patois for 'back in Jamaica'). The 10-song set features longstanding members, Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald,  in the studio with producer/ singer Alborosie, whose deep study of Jamaican music was heavily influenced by the Souls and their heyday at Channel One studio in the 1980s. The production features all-star musicians including keyboardist Tyrone Downie (formerly of The Wailers) and bassist Errol "Flabba" Holt (of the historic Roots Radics band). The first single is a re-make of "Shark Attack" one of the bands classic '90s hits, featuring a deejay verse by Alborosie.

    Wailing Souls - Back A Yard

    Posted by Karen Villesvik on 18th Mar 2021

    An absolute work of art! Pipe and Bread have never abandoned the message, and this album is true to the highest classic roots sound. It comes to us at the right time - a much-needed balm of hope for the wearied soul as we forward into 2021.
