Artist Info

The Wailing Souls

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Wailing Souls started out as a three-piece - Winston 'Pipe' Matthews, George 'Buddy' Haye and Lloyd 'Bread' McDonald - known as the Renegades in 1965.

In the late 60s, Matthews and McDonald recorded on Coxsone Dodd's famous Studio One label with singers Oswald Downes and Norman Davis as both The Classics and The Wailing Souls.

The Wailing Souls then moved to Bob Marley's Tuff Gong label in the early 1970s and became known as Pipe and The Pipes to avoid confusion with The Wailers.

In 1974, Haye once again took over from Downes and Davis and the group worked with producer 'Jo Jo' Hookim on the Channel One label, before starting their own Massive label in 1977.

The Wailing Souls only became the familiar quartet when ex-Black Uhuru singer, Rudolph ‘Garth’ Dennis, joined. This lineup remained stable for around ten years, during which time The Wailing Souls recorded with notable producers such as Sly and Robbie, 'Junjo' Lawes and Linval Thompson before splitting up in 1984.
