OLDIES SUNDAY: @ThirdWorldBand – Always Around (1979)


It’s February, and it’s a month where some of us celebrate love. February 6 is a day that celebrates a Music Icon that’s named Marley, the late Bunny Rugs. Bunny Rugs was the Lead Vocalist of the legendary Third World Band. Today, we recognize him with an Oldies Sunday selection. We go back in time to check out, “Always Around“.

Written by the late Irvin “Carrot” Jarrett, “Always Around” was released through Island Records in 1979. The song featured mostly Bunny Rugs vocals throughout as the song spoke of having that special love around, and every good thing can come from that. The song features smooth production that was handled by the Band, and was one of the songs that was a part of the Band’s transition from Roots Reggae, to more Pop-oriented singles. “Always Around” was featured on Third World’s “The Story’s Been Told” album from 1979. The song never charted, but has been considered one of Third World’s best songs.

Happy Birthday to the LEGENDARY Bunny Rugs!
