Format: Audio CD
Well, we have many albums that are called "Bob Marley & the Wailers" well this album features a variety of artists AND THE WAILERS, maybe it should be called A bunch of other people and the Wailers; often the Wailers nucleus of Bunny Livingston Wailer, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh adding harmony on the different tracks. In a few cases the Soulettes are added into the mix and lastly one duet of Bob and Marcia Griffiths is present too.

Now, I wish to make this point clear, vs. the track listing shown above with the audio samples, every song save tracks 5 and 13 which are duets have appended on each song as a certain artist's name "and the Wailers." I note above too, track 8 "Where's Sammy gone" does not even include the name of any artist. It is sung by Lord Brynner and the Wailers. Brynner hails from Trinidad and the liner notes state that whenever you see the name Lord used, it often means the artists comes from that other Caribean island.

I thought this CD would be like an old Bob Marley CD I had "Soul Shakedown", his early stuff, Trojan record label type of stuff, I was right in that it was some of the early Wailers music, but it actually involves a wide range of performers and has performances that expand approximately the years of 1964-1966 or so. It is rich in that context and I think any reggae/ska fan would find this to be a valuable collection even though song by song, I wonder if it is all that strong. Bob Andy's "I've got to go home" is one of the best reggae songs ever, but that one song does not make this collection the best of collections available. For Reggae Ska fanatics though it has historical value.

I had heard of Junior Braithwaite, an early Wailer but had not been exposed to any of his music previously.
