Birth Of A Legend (single LP version)

LP (Item 469777) Calla, 1960s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 18

Early, early Coxsone Dodd produced sides of groovy rocksteady, voiced by a young Bob Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. While we don't find this material nearly as compelling as his later work produced by Lee Perry and then his huge international hits, it's great Studio One rocksteady and an interesting portrait of a legend in the earliest stages of his career. 10 tracks, including "Simmer Down", "Maga Dog", "I Made A Mistake", "I Am Going Home", "Donna", "Nobody Knows" and "Love & Affection". (Calla/CBS pressing from the 70s. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
