The 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes #20

Bus Dem Shut – The Wailers (Wailers Production)

What a tune! Released in the summer of 1967 this shows that the Wailers were every bit as good as the Uniques or the Sensations on their day.

Before starting their Wail N Soul M label the Wailers had recorded exclusively for Coxsone Dodd, though many artists were dabbling with self productions in the rocksteady era few made as much of a go of it as the Wailers did with more than a dozen singles released between ’66 and ’69. Bus Dem Shut is arguably the pick of the bunch.

Bus Dem Shut is available on the Universal CD, Wail’n Soul’m Singles Selecta.
