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 length of the set – as Marley and the group really open up on some classics, as well as some other gems that maybe even sparkle more on this album. Titles include "Exodus", "Stir It Up", "Rat Race", "Concrete Jungle", "Lively Up Yourself", "Is This Love", "Punky Reggae Party", "Heathen", "Jamming", and "Kinky Reggae".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

The Meditations first full length LP, actually issued first in the US, then later in Jamaica. Some of the work here was initially released as singles and then collected for this release, but all of it features their strong roots harmonies. Includes "Woman Is Like A Shadow", "Do ...

Reggae Greats
Island/Mango, Early 80s. Very Good+
A nice collection of Pablo Moses sides from the early 80s. To us, Moses never really achieved the stardom his talent merited, one of the finest of his era's songcrafters, typically recorded by Geoffrey Chung with a sympathetic production style, nice and spare, highlighting Moses light falsetto ...

Reggae Got Soul
Island, 1976. Very Good+
A classic moment from Frederick "Toots" Hibbert – a set that's maybe his equivalent to some of the key Island Records albums of the 70s from Bob Marley & The Wailers! Like those, the production here is top-shelf – handled partly by Joe Boyd, who brings a very respectful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Exodus
Island, 1977. Very Good
One of our favorite Wailers LPs – as solid a statement as Marley had made, and to our ears, the finest moment of his later career. The album features classics like "Natural Mystic", "Three Little Birds", "One Love/People Get Ready" and the excellent, driving ... LP, Vinyl record album
Axiom/Island, 1997. Very Good+ 2LP
A collection of dub instrumentals and extended mixes of 11 classic tracks from The Wailers. Titles include "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)", "No Woman No Cry", "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)", "Exodus", "One Love (People Get Ready)", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Protest
Island, 1977. Very Good+
Late 70s solo effort from this founding member of the Wailers, self-produced on his own Solomonic label and then licensed to Island for worldwide distribution. A solid roots effort from one of the most significant moments in Jamaican music history, this album maintains Livingston's nicely crafted ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1982. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A mighty mighty tribute to the great Bob Marley – served up here by a host of former associates, family members, and Jamaican contemporaries – all in some lively concert performances that really open things up! The double-length set was a great seller at the time, and continues to be a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Walking On Sunshine
Epic/Ice, 1978. Very Good
The purist reggae lover side of us wants to dismiss this is a largely commercial crossover record, but the electro loving side of us can't get enough of the title track, which was also covered to great effect by Rocker's Revenge. Much of the rest of the record hews closer to traditional reggae and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Follow My Mind
Reprise, 1975. Very Good+
Strange & sublime reggae from Jimmy Cliff, cut during his mid 70s turn with Warner Brothers. A little more than half of the record was cut in Jamaica at Channel One and Tubby's, and features a cast of Jamaican greats like Sly & Robbie, Horsemouth, Ranchie and Prince Buster, but there's a ...

Equal Rights
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+
Peter Tosh's great, militant, second solo LP, one of the best of his career! Equal Rights is up to par with the finest Wailers LPs, although this is a bit heavier than the groovy, mellow Legalize It, the predecessor. A vital, hugely important, essential set of mid-to-late 70s reggae on Columbia. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Anthem
Mango, 1982. Very Good+
The cream of the crop of early 80s reggae. Fusing militant, political lyrics with the excellent harmony vocal arrangements of Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson and Michael Rose and the unrelenting electrified rhythms of Sly & Robbie, Black Uhuru represented the zenith of the modern Roots era. This ... LP, Vinyl record album
