Biography

Bob Marley was a hero figure, in the classic mythological sense. His departure from this planet came at a point when his vision of One World, One Love -- inspired by his belief in Rastafari -- was beginning to be heard and felt. The last Bob Marley and the Wailers tour in 1980 attracted the largest audiences at that time for any musical act in Europe.

The tracks are of historic import, the remastered sound is excellent, the booklet is packed with information and a good essay. Is there any Marley fan, though, who doesn't already own these tracks, perhaps even in triplicate? Anyway, if you don't, this is a great catch-up opportunity, although all these tracks can also be found remastered in their original context, the two CDs "African Herbsman" and "Soul Rebel" on Trojan Records. If you're thinking of the "Songs of Freedom" box set (a must-have), be aware that the best of these tracks can be found there in comparable sound quality.

After reading the Marley biography "Catch a Fire," I was primed to get into more of the Wailer's stuff, and this CD has become a personal favorite. I now listen to this CD as frequently as "Legend" and Jimmy Cliff's "Harder They Come" both of which are reggae classics. On "Best" you'll be able to pick up on the early reggae 'rock steady' influence of American pop, with plenty of falsetto harmonies coming from Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh. 'Soul Shakedown Party,' 'Mr. Brown,' 'I Know a Place' and many of the other tracks on this recording simply rock, and will make you feel great. A warning though: this CD is remastered from original recordings and sounds scratchy and old in some places. If you're an audiophile, this may bother you. For me, it only adds to the authenticity of the music, and makes me think of a more innocent time! I hope you enjoy this CD as much as I do!

One of my favorite Marley compilations ever! All of the tracks are with the original Wailers (Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, Carlton and Aston Barrett) and covers much of his work with Lee Perry and Leslie Kong in Jamaica before he recorded in England. I'm admittedly a bigger fan of Bob's older work, so this compilation is right up my alley.

If you're a fan of Bob's newer (mid 70's - 80's) music, and are starting to get interested in the older tracks, all I can say is BUY THIS! I owned the cd version of this compilation and It was stuck in my deck from the moment I started listening. You'll have to expect a more dated production value for these songs, but to me, this just adds to the nostalgia and mystery.

In my opinion, this is a must have for the real reggae fan.
