JDIZZY's 365 # 281: Buffalo Soldier

Buffalo Soldier - Bob Marley & The Wailers (1983)

Recorded right before his death in 1980 and released posthumously on Confrontation in 1983, this song tells the tale of African Americans who fought in the Indian Wars in the late 19th century. It is jubilant, heartbreaking, powerful and profound. Hence, it is in line with the rest of The Patron Saint of Jamaica's body of work, and should be revered with the rest.

.......And I've always loved the Banana Splits interpolation in the chorus!

Ladies and gentlemen, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly!
