There's some weakness here at times in the instrumentation and the backup singer on Get Up Stand Up is a little over-aggressive (keep out of the way of Peter Tosh and do not step on his big lead voice, please) and may as well on I shot the Sheriff, where the backup sounds a bit much like Earth Wind and Fire, but when you get to No woman no cry, you better stand and deliver with no crying, like Iron, like a human heart.
I got this basically for Get Up Stand Up; Tosh's low rumble is about the best I can do nowadays, and that is a great tune in any case. Just get up and rumble, old man. A lot of the cuts on here are not the better known Marley tunes. Where is Exodus? Where is Redemption Songs? Where is Kaya?
But with got here a possible version (if brief) of Jammin to close out your night with. And we got Get Up. We got Buffalo Soldier, thank God (and with horns - good instrumentation here)! We got a version of One Love without People Get Ready. Well, you can read the list on another review here from the vendor. Is this Love is not too bad a version. Some of these cuts have cheesy keyboards on them, and the bass does not boom as it must.
But then you get to No Woman, No Cry, and it cuts like ice. For twenty or thirty years this song has stood up for me, and meant much, and here it is just as it ought to be. But just like Otis Redding's Lovin' you too long (to stop now) like on Sing Otis Redding & Commitments Hits (Karaoke), you better practice and practice and practice to get smooth enough to do it without crying. Cause this song means much and speaks much, to yourself and everyone else. Deliver it and let everyone else cry, ease their pain, heal.
Two songs here make this disk worthwhile Get Up and No Woman.
