African Herbsman (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 587925) Trojan, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

Great early work by Bob Marley & The Wailers – some of it produced by the legendary Lee Perry, too! Some of the tunes are early takes on later famous versions – but in a way, they're actually more definitive – in that they tie Marley back to the rich Kingston culture, instead of making him some beatific figure who emerged to greatness on his own. The rougher edge is a great contrast to Marley during the Island years – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Lively Up Yourself","Small Axe", "Duppy Conqueror", "African Herbsman", "Sun Is Shining", "Keep On Moving", "Don't Rock The Boat", and "Kaya".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Babylon By Bus
Island/Tuff Gong, 1978. Used
A classic double live album from Bob Marley & The Wailers – presented and packaged at a level that's really a cut above the usual set of that nature from the time! The group's in excellent form in a concert setting – and there's more than enough magic here to warrant the extended ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used 2CDs
Some of Marley's finest work, most of it cut in collaboration with Lee Perry, who many argue coaxed some of the best material from Marley and the Wailers. The earliest sides here were produced by Bunny Lee, from 1969, and include classics like "Stop That train", "Mr Chatterbox" ... CD

Trojan, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD
Classic work from one of the coolest Jamaican trios at the end of the 60s – a group who certainly take their harmonic inspiration from American soul – but also fuse their vocals nicely onto rocksteady and early reggae rhythms! The Pioneers are certainly well-named – as their ... CD

Maytals

Monkey Man
Trojan (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used
One of the greatest trio albums ever from the Jamaican scene – a classic set that kicked off the sound of reggae for the 70s, while still holding onto the rocksteady sound of the years before! The vocals of the Maytals are tied together tightly, but still have a rough edge that's quite ... CD
