#themusicologist [#804] Wailers– Bend Down Low

The Upsetter’s [Lee Perry] BURIAL version of the Wailers 1966 Studio 1 classic…

 

“Fighting to preserve things as they are inevitably becomes a battle to think and speak of things in certain ways, either defensively or preemptively. We face the future empty-handed, language-wise; we are dumb in the face of the future.” George Orwell

John Holt – I See Your Face

“No truth can cure the sorrow we feel from losing a loved one. No truth, no sincerity, no strength, no kindness can cure that sorrow. All we can do is see it through to the end and learn something from it, but what we learn will be no help in facing the next sorrow that comes to us without warning.”
– Haruki Murakami
