For any Bob Marley fans this is a must have. Listen to original versions of many classic tracks as well as some very rare material as well. The second disc features a lot of peter tosh songs. Anyway, for the price I saw this listed at, buy it imediately, you will not be disappointed.

i've always loved the old Wailers material, their rough and raw jamaican edge and slick sweeet vocal harmonies have such a powerful effect. this collection features some of the great Lee Perry produced stuff from 1970 and 1971 like "Duppy Conqueror" & "Mr. Brown." i'm sure all of this material has been released several hundreds of times throughout the years, but this compilation serves as a nice introduction to the early years of this musical giant. the dvd is a live show from 1980 on the Survival tour and is a nice addition to the set.

Let me make it clear my man like this music and I really dont listen to rap or reggae, So when ever I buy this type of music it is for him. He is a very big fan of this artist and he plays this album all the time so from him to you this cd is great :).
