ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Irie Greetings to all friends and fans.

This is Whispering Lion and I want to to say "Thank You" to all the musicians, engineers, artists, fans, friends and family who helped guide me through the making of "REAL REVOLUTION". I especially want to thank my loving wife, Fireball Sistah (Teena) and my up-and-coming singing star son, Jah Z (Joshua)- major superstar there! They have lived and breathed these tunes and now it is time to share the music and the message with all of you. Also "Thank you" to all the writers and fans and dj's who have played and enjoyed my music throughout my career. Special thanks to Irie Lion (Maddoc) who created and manages my web site, whisperinglion.com, keeping it fresh and current. And a very special "thank you" to Jon Bendich and Ralston Grant for keeping the project and the vision moving forward.

My new CD, "REAL REVOLUTION" and my previous release, "TRIBUTE TO THE SPIRIT" are both available right here on CDBaby. Below, is the important info about "Real Revolution."

"REAL REVOLUTION" is a positive and passionate collection of 10 original songs plus a bonus of 5 deep dub trax. "REAL REVOLUTION" is being distributed by World of Rhythm at CDBaby, I-tunes and many other download sites.

The critics have raved:

Whispering Lion's Real Revolution is "an impassioned personalization of reggae with a California spin... The arrangements are tight with
sweet female backing vocals to offset Lion's roar, Ten songs and five dubs that don't sound quite like anything else you've ever heard..."
CHUCK FOSTER, THE BEAT

"The latest release from Whispering Lion- "Real Revolution"-is the best yet. Tunes will have your feet moving and your brain reasoning at the same time. This is roots music with heart behind it
DJ BAHILMON, SKY.FM ROOTS REGGAE

"You can feel it from the harmony, from the melody, from the chorus,
from the lyrics, the stereophony, in each vibe of every track."
DJ GUSMATTI "Under Presssure", TPN ITALY,"Caribbean Vibes", USA

"Every track and dub essential to the max and the mix. Classic, progressive roots rock reggae sounds can never be denied."
DJ DOUG WENDT at www.midnightdread.com

"Just heard the track "Real Revolution" on the radio (SKY.fm) and it is a true masterpiece!"
Dan Strba, SWITZERLAND

"Whispering Lion... what a fitting name for this soft-voiced singer outta California. Some excellent guitar-work on that album too".
DJ TOM KRISZ, Orange 94 -das freie Radio in Wien, AUSTRIA

"I love how the I sounds like Dylan playing reggae. JAH bless thanks."
DJ RAS AARON, "Revolution Soundz", KPSU, Portand, Oregon

"This is a great record... nice singing, the important lyrics, and the real cool riddims and dubs."
DJ TAL GRUBSTEIN, live 365/ISRAEL/

Whispering Lion's son, Jah Z, makes his vocal debut on "REAL REVOLUTION."

Every track and dub essential to the max...
The REAL REVOLUTION is the real deal for what Marley called 'the  real revolutionaries'. I am so freakin' impressed but it's no surprise since Whispering Lion has been delivering the goods to Midnight Dread for 20 years. This musical/lyrical bomb was built over many moons and it shows and glows like a Harvest-sized ghost-buster. Every track and dub essential to the max and the mix. Classic, progressive roots rock reggae sounds can never be denied.  From 1984's "Don't Blame Your Pain On Me" to "Better Days" in 2005  it's all crucial me lion. It's made my short list of 'Currently on endless play in the Midnight Dread cd changers' at my website. Go deh. -Doug Wendt at www.midnightdread.com

Crucial modern roots reggae!
The latest release from Whispering Lion- "Real Revolution"-is the best yet. Some tight musicianship rides beneath the conscious lyrics, most pertinent in these times. Tunes like "Better Days," "Bob, Peter, Bunny," "In This House," "Sweet Salvation," and the title track in particular will have your feet moving and your brain reasoning at the same time. This is roots music with heart behind it, from an artist who truly cares about what's happening in today's world. Nuff Respect!
