If you are tired of the washed out sounds of the Def Jam Island remastered discs, get this one. The producers have managed to preserve the gritty sound of the original recordings. Every track here sounds like the version that Bob himself would have preferred. The opening track just blows you away. I have versions of Lively Up Yourself but this one just sounds like the real thing.

The DVD side packs extra tracks plus a very easy to follow history of the greatest band ever to play on planet earth.

Stand Alone is a short track that shows the diversity of Bob's lyrical talent. It is well put together with a slightly melancholic undertone that reflects the theme of the song. I don't know how this track managed to miss out on the limelight.

What I like most about this album is the authenticity of the sound but also the songs being produced with as fewer instruments as possible. The support or background vocals also sound superb.

At the moment it is my best album of this greatest band.

Personally I always found Marley to be the shmaltziest of reggae stars, sure he turned the West onto reggae, but sonically his music
isn't as great as his 'legend' most of the time. This Lee Perry produced collection is raw has a more rocksteady/ska type groove, and yet points the direction Marley would take via Perry's innovative and experimental production. It's a classic, this set really moves towards the Trogan/Studio One type raw style, and would rate up there with Culture's '2 7's clash' as one of the great, psychedelic, reggae albums! IRIE 100% DYNAMITE!!
