Re: Site update 2019: HELP WANTED!

How close do you think we are to the update at this stage? I have been wondering when this question would come. But it’s really more a question about how much time I have to do whatever is left. I prioritize kids, relations and exercise (and rest) this year, and right now my life is rather full wit...

Bunny Wailer’s ”Dream Land” is from 1971.
Isn't the 1971 version by The Wailers, with the 1976 version being a solo cover?
Aha, I guess it makes sense to keep it as 1976 then (even though Bunny sings on both recordings).
