Love Joys “All I Can Say” (Extended)

A Wackies classic no matter how you slice it, the Love Joys’ “All I Can Say” is Bullwackie at his absolute best.  Atmospheric vibe, deep, thunderous bass, stupendous keys, and that “dank” Wackies basement sound all of us have come to love.  Featured on their outstanding debut album ‘Lovers Rock,’ this tune is tremendous in every way…a perfect recording in my opinion.  Filled with that tuff Wackies New York Shitty vibe, the song is dreada than dread, however, the cousins are hopelessly optimistic, wishing for a better world one day.  The Wackies sound, and the music that characterizes it, is vastly under-rated, and basically unheard of to the average reggae fan.  As I told Bullwackie recently, Wackies is my Motown.

The Love Joys were a short-lived female duo based in New York who recorded two albums for Lloyd James’ legendary Wackies label. Comprised of cousins Sonia Abel and Claudette Brown, the twosome was one of the few female reggae groups to make any sort of splash, so it’s a shame that their unique sound wasn’t recorded more. (Nowadays, Abel has teamed with her husband to form the group Natti Love Joys, based in Tennessee.)

This is the extended version of the song, which is not featured on the album.  A real special treat for all the MIDNIGHT RAVER readers…

All I can say, all I can say,
All I can say, all I can say, all I can say.
I hope and pray, that this world,
Will be a better world one day.

Too much, killing to socialize, that not right my brother.
Stand on his right hand, you’re sure to be a better man.

So, all I can say,all I can say, all I can say,
This world will be a better world one day.

What is your cause, disobeying Jah law?
Distroying his kingdom, do you wanna burn?
Children will play now, grow up and go astray.
Look behind the corner, Babylon is gonna take them away.

So, all I can say, all I can say,
This world is going be a better world one day.

(..)

Too much, killing to socialize, that not like my brother.
Stand on his right hand, you’re sure to be a better man.

So, all I can say, all I can say,
This world will be a better world one day.

(..)

Children will play now, grow up and go astray.
Look behind the corner, Babylon is gonna take them away.

So, all I can say, all I can say,
This world will be a better world one day.
Yeah! A better world one day.
Yeah! A better world one day.
