Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer

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.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Natty Dread captures Bob Marley's decisive transition from Wailers band member to auteur, his singing and writing now front and center, and the revamped band securely reined in to his defiant, Rastafarian worldview. This 1974 release mirrors the lineup's more sinewy sound, carved by Al Anderson's spidery guitar fills, Touter's telegraphic keyboard, the I-Threes' female vocal choruses and vamping horns--a potent brew that bubbles under his then most openly political songs. A position paper on the daunting ghetto realities of Jamaica's Trenchtown, the album reels off a series of enduring Marley classics and kicks off with the giddy, sexy reggae anthem, "Lively Up Yourself," with its hilarious but mysterious spoken fadeout ("What you got in dat bag, dere?"). It continues with the uplifting pep talk in "No Woman No Cry," the grim dispatches of "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)" and "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)," as well as the exhortations of the title song and "Revolution." Marley's own dreadlocks were still just growing in then, but this is nonetheless fully matured, riveting reggae at its most focused, righteous, and rhythmically irresistible. --Sam Sutherland

"Talkin' Blues": The instrumental work is excellent; the percussion sets the beat nicely.
Steven A. Peterson
I love Lively Up Yourself, plus Dem Belly Full; Rebel Music; So Jah Seh; Talkin' Blues and Revolution are good too.

After Bob Marleys recent split from the oringinal 3 Wailers, Bob had to come up with some way to get him back on track.

So by joining together his wife Rita Marley and Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt known as the I-Threes and an American Guitarist Al Anderson he made his new Wailers with Familyman and Carly Barret still on Bass/Percussion. The band was now named,

"Bob Marley & The Wailers."

And about 10 months later they produced Natty Dread releasing October 25th 1974.

The album was not a huge succes unlike it is today, as the likes of Queen releasing Bohiem Rhapsody and Abba firmly in the charts, did not give Bob Marley a decent chance.

Natty Dread however was still a solid albym.

The album kicks off with the groovy Lively Up Yourself, Bobs humour brings the song alive, along with Familymans amazing bass playing. 10/10

The second song No Woman No Cry is a studio version of the legendary live version, nethertheless the song still is a very decent effort. 9/10

Third brings the inspiring Them Belly Full(But We Hungry) it is a rebel on how the rich greedly flash there money while the poor poeple are shunted to one side and left there to starve. 9/10

Forth brings Rebel Music(3 O'clock Road Block) this is a very well produced song with a strong reggae feel. Bobs talking about his ambush in London. 8/10

Fifth brings So Jah Seh, which was one of the singles, a very underated song, written by Rita Marley and Willy Francisco. 10/10

Sixth brings Natty Dread a brilliant song, a catchy beat, talking about life in Trench Town. One of the many highlights of the album.

"Natty Dread," was released in the aftermath of the breakup of the original Wailers in the Fall of 1973 when Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left to pursue solo careers. At this point, Bob Marley had replaced Bunny and Peter with the his wife, Rita, Judy Mowatt, and Marcia Griffiths, collectively called the "I-Threes". Also added was American rock guitarist Al Anderson, formerly with NRBQ. With this new line-up and the release of the "Natty Dread" album in 1974, the group was no long collectively "the Wailers," like before. Marley had dubbed it "Bob Marley & the Wailers".

The album starts off with Marley's delightful "Lively Up Yourself," (originally done with Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh in their years with Lee "Scratch" Perry from 1969-1972). The remake would soon be made one of the most famous songs of all-time with its delightful blues guitar and Marley's joyous singing. Next on the list is the original cut of the legendary "No Woman, No Cry," co-written with Vincent Ford. Though the original version would not become as popular as the version from 1975's "Live!" it is just as good and heartfelt. The tempo and sound are different, but this only makes the song more enjoyable.

Third in line is the solemn, but empowering "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)," written by drummer Carlton Barrett and Logan Cogil. The song's title says it all; the song sings of the evils of money and the inescapeable suffering of the poor. Number four is one of Bob Marley & the Wailers' best known songs: "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)," which was actually written by Hugh Peart and bassist Aston Barrett. The song is about Marley's harrassment by the police while in London.

The demise of the original Wailers was certainly tougher on Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh in terms of later success than it was on Bob Marley, who saw the value in spreading his beautifully defiant messages in music that meant crossing over to reach white audiences at the risk of alienating his core Rastafarian audiences at home.
As it turned out, Bob successfully reached everyone, and "Natty Dread," his first crossover success, proved it. There is little I can say about this lp that hasn't been said hundreds of times before, but here goes. It is one of the most perfect reggae lps made. Bob, now the undisputed leader, shines his visionary lights on high beam for the world to see. His was a message of defiant unity- a message that Peter Tosh also embraced, but in a much more radical way.
The key to Bob's success was that he understood moderation. His protests were subtle, poignant, yet you still knew they were protests, whereas Tosh's protests were blatent, in your face accusations (which I admire to no end) that left little to the imagination..
Bob's protest/love songs, such as "No Woman No Cry," are true tearjerkers, while "Revolution" leaves no doubt where Bob is at. The mix of love and protest on "Natty Dread" is a perfect yin/yang balance that Bob, no less anyone else, was ever able to reach again. It's a beautifully frozen moment in time that can be relived again and again- and should.
One of the most important reggae lps ever made, and one of my top 50 lps of any genre, any time period, and one I always seem to go back to for inspiration, "Natty Dread" is simply incomperable.
