We had the original Trojan 1984 audio cassette and wore it + 2 dubs to shreds, never knowing that Trojan re-released a digital remastering in 1987. 2 weeks ago when when our last dub no longer played, we found this '87 CD - NOW BACK IN HEAVEN AGAIN. What a difference in sound! Sentimentality for the old tape held us back for a long time. But there is just no comparison in sound with this disc - Trojan had some good recording engineers! Haven't bought or heard the later 1991 release but can't imagine it could be any better.
About the music itself: it's the height of early reggae artistry, it's been top-shelf for us for 26 years. It can't get any better.
CRANK IT UP!
It is as good an example of how the Wailers developed their style as you are likely to find. The songs are splendid to listen to, and can be appreciated on their own merits even without considering the future that Marley and the Wailers had.

Unmatched. Never has a compilation of music been so educational to a genre. Lost my album in the '80s. Amazon samples attribute all songs to Bob Marley .... Why?Published on December 19, 2010 by thurmonster
This is a mind blowing collection, a real jewel and a must have in any music library. No wonder the price is off the wall. Read morePublished on August 26, 2006 by Doc Schreiber
