Format: Audio CD
The bulk of this disc is actually a KSAN radio broadcast from October of 1973. The Band was kicked off the Sly and the Family Stone tour, but before they went back home to Jamaica they had one last comittment to fufill and it was this engagement at the KSAN Record Plant Studios. The only downside to this cd is that the running order is not that of the actual broadcast and the interview here is not from that same year but rather 1975 or those whereabouts. The I shot the sheriff included in this release is actually the version from the other night of the Lyceum concerts in London(Live! album from 1975). I actually prefer the version of I Shot the Sheriff on Talkin' Blues to the version on the Live! album. Another note is that not all the original Wailers are present for this recording at the KSAN studios. Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and the Barrett Brothers are on this recording but Bunny Wailer is not. Joe Higgs who originally taught the group how to sing in the 1960's in Jamaica takes the place of Bunny Wailer on this tour. Bunny Wailer grew tired of touring and someone was needed to replace him in the band, so Peter and Bob both called on Joe Higgs who happily agreed to join them for the 1973 American tour. In case you are wondering the real order of the KSAN setlist, it is as follows
1. Rastaman Chant
2. Bend down low (last track)
3. Slave Driver
4. You can't blame the youth
5. Stop that train
6. Burnin' and Lootin'
7. Kinky Reggae
8. Get up, Stand up
9. Lively up yourself
10.Walk the proud land

This cd introduced me to the Wailers and it is a classic that any Wailers fan should own.

This cd introduced me to the Wailers and it is a classic that any Wailers fan should own. Island records has remastered this and it now has 24 tracks, get that cd instead of this one and you will be able to get the full setlist I mentioned above.

Format: Audio CD
Of all non-studio (aka official) Marley albums this one is by far the best. Recorded at a live in-studio performance in San Francisco for KSAN radio in 1973. This album showcases Bob at his very best. Intercut between tracks is an interview Bob did in 1975 for JBC Radio. The interview is good although somtimes slow, however the music here is truely exceptional. The versions of 'Slave Driver' & 'Kinky Reggae' are simply amazing. They are faster than the album versions and are performed with much more energy. Talkin' Blues also features the previously unreleased "Am-A-Do' which is a fine song to play if you have that 'special lady friend over'. This album will be re-released (remastered) sometime in 2002 so if you don't already own this; hold out for that. The performance of these songs is taken from a longer session, so hopefully there'll be more to offer the second time around. Get it? Got it? Good.

This is without a doubt the best Robert Nesta Marley CD. It has love songs like am-a-do. Spiritual soung like Rastaman chant. The classics like Get up stand up and I shot the sheriff. It has two of the Wailers best slave driver and kinky reggae. If you like bob get this cd. It will change the way you look at Marley. JAH Rastafarai.

Talkin' Blues showcases what I believe to be the only live document of Bob Marley and the Original Wailers (minus Bunny Livingstone). The recording captures a live program made for San Francisco radio cira 1973, with a majority of songs coming from Catch a Fire and Burnin'. Additionally, there are a couple of good outtakes post-Original Wailers and a different live take of I Shot the Sheriff from the same London shows that produced the "Live" album.

As I said, the music is great, particularly the radio broadcast songs; the arrangements are a little tougher in my opinion, and they are leavened with some great harmonizing. What's maddening about this CD is that a 1975 interview with Bob Marley separates most of the tracks on the album. There is little context for the snippets and the songs that follow, plus it takes a while to become accustomed to Bob's accent. I think it would have been better to have the interview run in its entirety at the end of the disc.

However, in this iPod/programmable CD player age, the music can be focused on, and this makes it valuable for the Marley/Wailers fan. Given the recent pricing I've seen for this it a good pickup.
