Wow, no review for this one yet? I guess it's only been out for 35 years. A pretty nice outing for the Wailers...yes, that WAILERS, this was before Livingston and Tosh had left, and before the unit was renamed Bob Marley & the Wailers. Since they recorded under this name, it seems appropriate for that unit to have their own band page, but I guess that's too confusing for sputnik.
Anyway, the album has some memorable hits on it (I Shot the Sheriff, Get Up, Stand Up, Duppy Conqueror...) and is good launching ground into the more mainstream Marley music that would come to follow. It's nice to hear the additions of other song-writers on these early recordings, although I still find myself partial to Marley's compositions. Still, while the original Wailers were still a whole, they definitely brought their own brand of sound to the recordings.
Oh excellent, thanks for taking my review down cause your system didn't work.
