Thankfully, after the breakup of the original Wailers trio, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh along with some of the group's favored musicians continued to collaborate. In 1976, both Tosh and Bunny Wailer released their debut solo LPs ("Legalize It" and "Blackheart Man", respectively), and both remain absolute tours de force of roots reggae. The roster of personnel on "Blackheart Man" is like the 1927 Yankees of reggae, and this may be the finest LP ever put out by any ex-Wailer, to include Bob Marley's endlessly esteemed releases. 

Distinctive, passionate, gorgeously arranged, voiced, and performed.
