There are countless Bob Marley collections out there, and more each year, most of them made up of Marley & the Wailers’ pre-Island Records recordings done initially for the Jamaican market, and many of these are rather random, thrown-together affairs, possibly legally dubious, reshuffling the same tracks in various configurations, often without liner notes or much annotation. The recordings are generally rougher, grittier, and less sound-expansive than Marley’s more polished (and tightly copyright controlled) Island releases, and they’re definitely more Jamaican in feel. This two-disc set features tracks the Wailers recorded with producers Lee “Scratch” Perry and Bunny Lee (as well as some Wailers self-productions) between 1970 and 1971, a period that many feel generated the most free-flowing creative material the Wailers and Marley ever recorded.
