The Wailing Souls (originally The Renegades) are a Jamaican reggae vocal group whose origins date back to the 1960s. The group has undergone several line-up changes over the years with Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald the only constant members. They have been nominated for Grammy Awards three times.
But this fine mid-1980s set, recorded at Dynamic under the guidance of the relatively obscure producer Delroy Wright, is about as good as anything they had done up until this point.
Whoa yes, them a shake like leaf Whoa yes, them a shake like leaf. Stop being so cunie-cunie Stop being so jumpy-jumpy Why are you shaking so? Don't tell me that you don't know. Lay it on the line Me say you lay it on the line You've got to lay it on the line She said lay it on the line, whoa yes. Once and for all Want me or not It's now or never Or love me forever You are all I worth Don't you teach me no good
