Bunny Wailer’s “Battering Down Sentence” 7-inch Original Press Vinyl (Solomonic) 1976

Included here is something special.  Bunny Wailer’s “Battering Down Sentence” (Solomonic) 1976 7″ original press vinyl 45rpm.  Most will know this tune as “Fighting Against Conviction” from the Blackheart Man album, which many consider to be the greatest reggae album ever pressed.  This earlier version of the tune has a different mix.  The version on the flip side is outstanding.  Big up to the MIDNIGHT DREAD for maintaining this original pressing in mint condition.  It will never leave the sleeve again!
