A touchstone LP from the beginning of Reggae's post-Bob Marley era, Wailing Souls’ Fire House Rock was released by Greensleeves in 1981, to enduring acclaim. The title track became Wailing Souls’ most popular, anthemic song. It featured production by Henry Junjo Lawes, backing by the Roots Radics, and mixes by Scientist.
For the Record Store Day 2022 edition, the original mixes were transferred from reel-to-reel to a pristine 24-bit/96k digital master. These are paired in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a bonus 12-inch single disc of alternate, extended mixes originally released through VP’s Jah Guidance imprint.
