A righteous classic from the legendary Bob Marley
– and a set that really pushed the roots reggae sound strongly into the mainstream – almost making the mode the defining global understanding of Jamaican music, thanks to the power and presence of the album! All the Marley
Tuff Gong modes are gelling perfectly here – bad-stepping rhythms from The Wailers
, sweet backup from the I-Threes, and even some great guitar lines from Chinna Smith – all to complement Marley
's tremendous vocal power in the lead – rising here with majesty on tracks that include the classic "Roots, Rock, Reggae", plus "Crazy Baldhead","Rat Race", "Night Shift", "Positive Vibration", 'Who The Cap Fit", "Cry To Me", "Johnny Was", and "Want More".
