Editorial Reviews

This expanded, two-CD collection features 24 tracks, all completely remastered to the highest modern standards. Included in addition to the original 10-song release is the non-LP track Smile Jamaica (the original B-side to the 'Satisfy My Soul' single written for the people of Jamaica after the assassination attempt on Marley s life at the Smile Jamaica unity concert in 1976). The second disc features the highly sought-after, unreleased live show, Live at Ahoy Hallen. This rare, unreleased audio recording of a sold out performance at Ahoy Hallen in Rotterdam, Netherlands on July 7, 1978 had originally been planned to be released with the 'Babylon By Bus' album but never came out. The Wailers were in top form that night, with stellar performances of 'Is This Love' and 'Easy Skanking' from the recently released 'Kaya,' album plus some of Marley's most beloved songs including 'Concrete Jungle,' 'No Woman No Cry,' 'War/No More Trouble,' 'Jamming,' 'I Shot The Sheriff,' 'Get Up,' 'Stand Up,' and the closing track 'Exodus,' all leaving the packed house in a frenzy. Packaged with the original artwork, Kaya: 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition comes with a 23-page booklet that includes lyrics, rare photos, plus extensive liner notes.

Bob Marley Easy Skanking


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.

Customer Reviews

This is one of Bob Marley's best albums.
Josh Routhier
The remastered original album is awesome for someone like me who is upgrading from the original CD release.
To Be Simple
Time Will Tell is the highlight of the album for me but every song is really good.

Kaya, was recorded at the same time as Exodus. 25 or so tracks were recorded and 2 albums were to be made. Exodus contained many of the harder songs, but also had some softer songs, but not as many here. for the Kaya album there were 15 tracks left, and the 10 originally released in 1978 were Love songs, and Homages to the Power of ganja. The band shows a rare different side that is actually quite beautiful. Out of all the Bob Marley and the Wailers album's this album sticks out in my mind because it is so much different than the others. the entire catalogue is unique, but Kaya really leaves a long lasting impression. everyone knows the song "Is this Love?", but many of the other songs are classics and should not be over looked. Sun is Shining, Kaya, Time Will Tell, Easy Skanking, and Running Away are all very good songs. If you are looking for something more unique and different this album is most certainly for you. If you are going to have a reggae collection, you shouldn't pass up on this recording because it is a real treat.

The deluxe editions circa early 2000 were fantastic. Unreleased tracks, alternate versions, and high quality live material. Kaya Deluxe is the weakest of the bunch. There is nothing new here. Smile Jamaica was on the original remaster. The Rotterdam 78' concert, while good, has been circulating for years. A quick youtube search would get you the complete show (they removed Crisis from this release!?). Another gripe is sub par the sound quality. Far from professionally remastered.
There are outstanding dubs and demos from the album that should have made the cut. This is a disappointment for the hardcore fan. Don't be lazy Island.

First, I must say that I love the original album. I would give it a 4 stars, but rate it 1 because this Deluxe boxset is a total joke. Is someone sleeping at Universal? Who approved that project? The concert is not even complet as two songs are missing. Universal could have used the empty space on the first disc or AT LEAST replace Smile Jamaica with one or two more bonus tracks from that area. There is quite a lot of things that could have been included on this. The best choice would have been to include RASTAMAN LIVE UP (original mix from 1978) and BLACKMAN REDEMPTION (original mix from 1978). Another good addition àcould have been the unremix version of I KNOW A PLACE and WHO COLT THE GAME (both recorded in 1978). The latest was included on the double CD of One Love-The Very Best in 2001. If Universal didn't want to give anything new to the fans they could simply have included IS THIS DUB, SHE'S GONE (dub version), SUN IS SHINING (edit version) or TIME WILL TELL (1981 Alternate Mix) (included on the Countryman Soundtrack). Here is a few gems that are still hiding in the vaults and that are being circulating among fans: SUN IS SHINING (dubplate), RUNING AWAY (dubplate), MISTY MORNING (dubplate 1), MISTY MORNING (dubplate 2), I KNOW A PLACE (dub version), WHO COLT THE GAME (dub version). EASY SKANKING (monitor mix), KAYA (monitor mix), IS THIS LOVE (monitor mix), SUN IS SHINING (monitor mix), SATISFY MY SOUL (monitor mix) (five different versions), SHE'S GONE (monitor mix), MISTY MORNING (monitor mix), CRISIS (monitor mix), RUNING AWAY (monitor mix). Come on guys, this is by far the weakest Deluxe Boxset released in the Marley catalogue.

Kaya is with no doubt a classic album that has stood the test of time. I was more than a little disappointed with this 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition mainly because it pales in comparison to the other fantastic Marley Deluxe Editions. The one bonus song is just another "version" of "Smile Jamaica". We already have two other versions of that song on the Rastaman Vibration Deluxe edition. The second cd may capture a good performance of the band but it sounds like crap. It sounds as though it was mastered from a very weak audio source or poor recording device. I really think that this is a money grab and at this price point we deserve better.

Universal Records should be ashamed of themselves for such a shameful cash grab with this release.

Disc 1- The first disc is simply the 2001 remaster, no different at all. They left nearly 40 minutes on this disc completely empty of any bonus tracks when there are dozens of unreleased demo's, dubs, and songs from the Kaya sessions that could have easily been included, just as they have done with all of the previous Universal Deluxe Edition sets.

Disc 2 - This disc is an incomplete live show from Rotterdam, Netherlands on July 7th, 1978. They excluded two songs that are from (you aren't going to believe this) the KAYA album leaving only 1 track in the live performance from the actual album. Crisis and Running Away were removed from the live set making the relevance of the live set almost nill. Truly unbelievable and mind blowing as to how they came to this decision. The two tracks excluded total about 15 minutes and could have been added to the first disc, while still leaving room for at least a half dozen unreleased tracks! I had to go find the bootleg version of the show to get these two songs, burn them to CD and include them with my set. Additionally, the sound quality on the live album is worse than the bootleg recordings found online! They did not use the soundboard for this release, even though they have it and the whole show sounds ripped from an online source, and like the treble was tweaked. Bob's vocals do not sound as good as the bootlegs available.

Packaging - They have also really cheaped out on the packaging for this set. The legendary plastic slip cover, which displays the signature "Deluxe Edition" has been completely eliminated leaving the cardboard double disc case just flopping around openly.
