"Bredda Gravilicious" was recorded by The Wailing Souls ca. 1977. The same year it was released in Jamaica on their own Massive label.

Island Records representatives recognized the single and offered a project resulting in the band's LP Wild Suspense, released in Europe in 1979.

The song was overdubbed in the UK with horns by Rico Rodriguez and Dick Cuthell as told by Garth Dennis in an interview with David Katz. (see: David KATZ 2003, pp. 319/320)

The dub version of the song, released in 1995 on the CD reissue to Wild Suspense, features prominently the trombone sound of Rico.
