Editorial Reviews

1976 album from the Reggae legend. The album was a great success in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to reach the Top Ten on the Billboard 200 charts.

This cd was released in 1976, and was the first studio cd I heard by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Strangely enough, none of the tracks here appear on the greatest hits cd, Legend, although many are worthy. This cd has never left my 5 disc cd changer since I've owned it. This album also marks the first time Bob Marley and the Wailers made the charts in America. The band features 2 new guitarists (Donald Kinsey from Peter Tosh's Band, and Earl "Chinna" Smith a legendary Jamaican guitarist) and the guitar work is fantastic. This cd explores some new ground for reggae, and it is very good. From the opening notes of Positive Vibration, to the Speech by H.I.M transcribed to music in the song War, I was hooked as a Wailers addict for life. If you Want More Rastaman Vibrations, check out Live at the Roxy. Live the band gives off a huge vibe that is unmatched by anyone today and many of the songs on Live at the Roxy are Rastaman Vibration tracks. This cd is essential in any music collection.

Bob Marley & The Wailers-Rastaman Vibration *****

While this may not be Marley & The Wailers' most successful, best, or popular album it still holds a special place in my heart. More then any other album in his cannon Rastaman Vibration is more social conscious then all his other releases combined. Social issues was something he had always sang about but Rastaman Vibration seems to almost souly focus around that. Good, Evil, political, religious, and basically any other subject under the sun is covered by Marley here and this is why it is so near and dear to my heart. When people are brave enough to address issues it automatically gains my respect but when they can do it in such a intelligent way as Marley did they earn my respect for ever. Catch A Fire(the groups best album), Burnin' came close but couldn't match the subject matter of Rastaman Vibration.

I feel it also important to mention the addition of Donald Kinsey and Earl 'Chinna' Smith on guitar. This may not seem important but they are in my book one of the best guitar duo's in all of reggae.

From the almost chant of 'Positive Vibration' through the mellancolly 'Cry To Me' on through the semi-scat of 'Crazy Baldhead' to the anthemic 'War' and the final notes of 'Rat Race' Rastaman Remains a consitantly strong album. The bonus track 'Jah Live' is a great addition to this already fantastic album but it is the second and third tracks that take this albums to a five star level. 'Roots, Rock Reggae' is an unheralded classic. Truly one of the very best songs Marley & The Wailers ever pinned. 'Johnny Was' however may be the best songs Marley has ever written, if not it is among them. It truly must be heard to appreciate. It may take a few listens but once it hits you it does so like a ton of bricks.

The album, "Rastaman Vibration," is a very positive and legendary album. The lyrics of this album are not only strong, but they are also lyrics that are true and that you can relate to. If you love music with deep, meaningful lyrics and a catchy, interesting beat, you will definitely enjoy this CD. From the heavy bass to the well thought out lyrics, you will be begging for more and wishing for the songs to never end as you listen to each track. Each song is sure to leave Reggae fans happy and pleased. If you have ever listened to Bob Marley before or even as a first time listener, this CD is definitely one to be enjoyed by all.

Bob & the new incarnation of The Wailers had hit their creative stride prior to releasing this album and it shows. I agree with the reviewer who stated that this, of all of the post Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer version of The Wailers, is the bands, in particular Marley's, most socially conscious LP. It is also Bob's first album to give us glimpses of certain Rastafarian beliefs and this theme would carry on to the masterpieces soon to follow. RASTAMAN VIBRATION is a wonderful display of musicianship, creativity and production. The political, social and spiritual content, delved into, is nicely arranged and tied up neatly together over some of the best musical compositions he and the band ever accomplished, IMHO.

The range of topics displayed by Marley is truly incredible and his ability to go from singing about oneness and peace through physical manifestations of spiritual concepts as evidenced by the title track to the sadness of the all to real hatred causing tragic loss revealed in "Johnny Was" which is Marley at his poetic best. This album truly tackles all the of the emotions of the human experience, from the bigotry of "Crazy Baldheads' to the betrayal of "Who The Cap Fit" to the harsh consequences of not heeding the warnings of Emperor Haile Selassie in the classic "War."

And in all of that, he still has time to include a wonderful tribute to Reggae music with "Roots, Rock, Reggae." This is one of 3 solo albums released by the original founders of The Wailers in the year 1976. Reggae was here to stay thanks to the wonderful albums by Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers and others, the genre had taken firm root around the world as evidenced by this album reaching #8 on the U.S. charts at a time when R&B and Rock were the dominate genres in music.
