Wackies Rhythm Force - Free South Africa (1986)

Lloyd Barnes (born in 1944 in Jamaica), popularly known as Bullwackie, is the founder of the independent record label Wackies, specialized in Jamaican music.

Barnes was a protégé of Prince Buster, and recorded several singles during the 1960s. Lloyd Barnes worked for Duke Reid's Treasure Isle label as an engineer before emigrating to The Bronx, New York in the early 1970s. Here he founded the Wackie's House Of Music record store and behind this shop-front was the first significant reggae studio and label in the United States. The Bullwackie's and Wackies labels followed, along with other imprints such as Senrab, Hamma, and Senta, and during the late 1970s and early 1980s he produced artists such as Horace Andy, Sugar Minott, Junior Byles, Roland Alphonso, Tyrone Evans, and Lee "Scratch" Perry.
Later productions included work by Jackie Mittoo. Barnes also operated a sound system which he used as an outlet for the Wackies recordings.

The album "Wackies Rhythm Force - Free South Africa " , recorded and mixed in New York, was released in 1986.
