‘Walk the Proud Land’ by the Wailers

Here’s a gem from the early music of the incomparable Wailers (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer). The song is called ‘Rude Boy’ and alternatively, ‘Walk the Proud Land’. This early version is ska and worth a listen.

In the 1970’s the Wailers recorded the song in a powerful, Roots Reggae variation. Click here to listen. It’s one of my all-time favorite Bob Marley and the Wailers songs. Unfortunately, unless you want to see a baby learn how to walk there is no video available for this song, but you can settle for an entertaining, live version (6/23/07) from Bunny Wailer below.
