While "Live!" and "Babylon By Bus" are recorded proof of Bob's magnetic live shows, this performance at The Roxy captured in ten songs is by far the best sounding and most explosive Bob has ever sounded. Hearing "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)" followed by "I Shot The Sheriff" is nothing short of a spirtual experience.
But make no mistake about it, "Rastaman" as an album stands triumphantly on its own merits, but the inclusion of Bob's 1976 Roxy show makes this reissue a must for anyone who calls themselves a Bob Marley or reggae fan.
The album is laden with hits, from the joyous "Positive Vibration," and the danceable "Roots, Rock, Reggae," to the enigmatic and powerful "Crazy Baldhead," and the anti-racism statement "War". Each song is a Marley classic and an essential to any collection. The alternate mixes and the rare bonus track, "Jah Live" are all amazing. The second disc, contains a concert from the U.S. "Rastaman Vibration" tour at the Roxy in Hollywood in May. The second disc also includes two bonus tracks, the delightful "Smile Jamaica," and a remix of it, both recorded after the sessions for the main album.
This album is sure to delight any listener and is crucial to every Marley or reggae collection. Pick this up and you'll be listening to it non-stop for weeks on end.
Possibly the best song on this collection is ~ "RAT RACE", hard hitting cue with amazing lyrics and Marley & the Wailers offer a truly amazing message. A two-disc package loaded with extras, which include six previously unreleased mixes of past album tracks. A great treasure is the nine previously unreleased live performances from the May 26, 1976 Concert at Roxy in Hollywood, California. Much of this is digitally remastered with bonus tracks inclusive, a very moving album. Probably one of the best old school reggae albums with lessons for all of us to learn and grow by---this album is a keeper!
Total 2-CD-Set ~ Island Def Jam Music 440-063-446-2 ~ (2002)
The live cd is very good with a special note to Donald Kinsey on lead guitar & some good dubs too.
My favourite Bob Marley album , so I’m absolutely suspect on this one.
Highly recommended. Even better than Exodus in my book.

Get the Deluxe version of this album! Filled with new bonus tracks and a extra disc of Live at the Roxy, not the full 2 CD version you can buy but close to the complete show. Read morePublished on July 18, 2014 by </><
