+-------------------------------[Release Notes]------------------------------+
| |
| Talkin' Blues is a crucial addition to Bob Marley's legacy. Like many |
| posthumous collections, the album is a motley assemblage of previously |
| unissued concert recordings & studio outtakes linked by short excerpts |
| from a 1975 Marley interview conducted by Jamaican journalist Dermot |
| Hussey. But the live material's uncompromised physical kick and the |
| narrative unity provided by the interview segments belie the album's |
| patchwork makeup. Actually, the seven tracks taken from the Wailers' |
| legendary October 1973 radio broadcast on KSAN, in San Francisco, are |
| sufficient cause to celebrate. These vintage, deliciously raw |
| performances, which feature Tosh and noted Jamaican vocalist Joe Higgs |
| (subbing for Bunny Wailer, who had just quit the band) are as vital as |
| those on the epochal 1975 album "Live!" and capture Marley's riddim |
| rebellion at a critical juncture, just as he began to take Babylon by |
| storm. |
| |
| The light, scattered applause on the KSAN tracks (there are only half |
| a dozen people in the studio audience) lends an air of poignant, |
| familial intimacy to the proceedings. The haunting clarity with which |
| Tosh and Higgs raise their voices in tortured harmony on the "weepin' |
| and a-wailin'" chorus of "Burnin' and Lootin'" evokes images of a |
| destitute family crying in the darkness of a Kingston tenement yard. |
| On that tune, and on ferocious readings of "Slave Driver" and "Get Up |
| Stand Up" from the same session, Marley's voice shivers with tangible |
| fear and wounded defiance, echoed by the argumentative chatter of Tosh |
| rhythm guitar, keyboardist Earl "Wire" Lindo percolating clavinet and |
| the angry drive of the sibling bass-drums backfield, Aston "Familyman" |
| Barrett and his brother Carlton. |
| |
| The result is 100-proof rebel music bristling with the same aggressive |
| spirit and embattled dignity that distinguished the original Wailers' |
| classic Jamaican singles of the late Sixties and early Seventies. One |
| Talkin' Blues number, "Walk the Proud Land," dates back even further. |
| First issued in the mid-Sixties as "Rude Boy," a brisk ska street-punk |
| anthem, the song is slowed down and torched Chicago-soul-style here, |
| with Marley, Tosh and Higgs singing like a rougher, Trenchtown version |
| of the Impressions. Higgs, who was the Wailers' harmony coach in their |
| schoolyard days lends a strong Smokey Robinson flavor to "Slave Driver |
| with his powerful falsetto while Tosh takes a smoldering vocal turn of |
| his own on "You Can't Blame the Youth," a sardonic black man's view of |
| revisionist white history ("You teach the youths about the pirate |
| Morgan / And you said he was a very great man"). |
| |
| The KSAN recordings effectively marked the end of Marley and Wailers' |
| first golden era. Within weeks Tosh and Higgs were gone and Marley hit |
| the crossover trail enriching his sound with bluesy lead guitar fuller |
| keyboards and the I-Threes' hearty female hosannas - all elements that |
| characterized later albums like Natty Dread, from 1974. The alternate |
| takes of "Talkin' Blues" and "Bend Down Low" that appear on the album |
| are a little less polished than the versions on "Natty Dread" but no |
| less fun. More interesting, though, is an unfinished song from those |
| sessions, "Ama-Do," a racy love song that juxtaposes corny lovey-dovey |
| cliches with the I-Threes' saucy rejoinder "Do it with your bad self!" |
| |
| The final track on "Talkin' Blues" - a searing and previously unissued |
| version of "I Shot the Sheriff," recorded during the historic 1975 |
| London shows that yielded the Live! album -simply reaffirms everything |
| that's already been said and written about Marley's mid-1970's concert |
| prowess. He is in full warrior vocal rapture here the band stoking the |
| rhythm fire underneath him with hardened aplomb. Though not as |
| revelatory as the KSAN material, it is a fitting finale to this album, |
| vivid proof not only of Marley's commanding stage presence but of the |
| long distance he'd come in so short a time. In less than 2 years, Bob |
| Marley had changed the face and future of reggae. Talkin' Blues is the |
| sound of those changes in motion. It is also a tribute befitting king. |

+-------------------------------[Release Notes]------------------------------+
| |
| Released: 20 October 1979. Highest Chart Positions: UK: 20, USA: 70 |
| |
| "Survival" was the first in a planned three part series, together with |
| "Uprising" and "Confrontation". This was the first album that was cut |
| at Bob's "Tuff Gong" studios. The album was originally entitled 'Black |
| Survival'. Bob is very serious on the album, gone are the love songs |
| from Kaya, and in come Bob confrontating his own demons as well as the |
| worlds. "Ambush In The Night" confronted the assissination attempt on |
| him. "Zimbabwe" was an ode to the emergent nation casting off the yoke |
| of white Rhodesia. "Wake Up & Live" exhorted those who accepted a life |
| of poverty to rise. "One Drop" was a big favourite from the album and |
| infact makes it the most brought Bob album in the UK. A great album |
| with so many great tracks it is impossible to single one at as being |
| the biggest song from the album. |
| |
| Musicians: Bob Marley, Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, The "I-Threes": |
| Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths & Judy Mowatt, Tyrone Downie, Earl "Wya" |
| Lindo, Junior Marvin, Al Anderson, Alvin Patterson, David Madden, Glen |
| Da Costa, Vin Gordon, Anthony Davis, Errol Brown, Headley Bennett, Val |
| Douglas and Mikey Richards. |
| |
| * * * |
| |
| So Much Trouble In The Wolrd |
| |
| Bob talks about the way men can be sent into space - an ego trip, but |
| can't get things right on earth. Bob also uses the line: "Two Million |
| miles away from reality" to great effect in the song. |
| |
| Zimbabwe |
| |
| As Bob was soon to play at the 'Zimbabwe Independence Ceremony', Bob |
| comes out in support of the apparently imminent retaking of Africa by |
| black freedom fighters. |
| |
| Top Ranking |
| |
| Using a 1970's catchphrase Bob draws attention to a divide and conquer |
| mentality in Jamaican politics, and like Jammin implies you can not be |
| into reggae and be divided. "They don't want to see us live together" |
| cries Bob. |
| |
| Babylon System |
| |
| Another Rasta song. The lyric casts Babylon as a vampire "sucking the |
| blood of the sufferers". Bob urges to "Tell the children the truth". |
| |
| Survival |
| |
| Bob returns to a militant form with "Survival". Bob chants "We're the |
| survivors, the black survivors". It is performed on a rhythm that |
| ressembles Exodus. The lines about choosing the right way to live and |
| quickly as time is running out, were perhaps an indication that Bob |
| feels his time is draining away. |
| |
| Africa Unite |
| |
| Africa Unite as the title suggests, is a plea for the unification of |
| all black people and Africans, put in Rasta context. Great when played |
| live, with Bob often adding the line "Marcus Garvey said it, so let it |
| be done". |
| |
| One Drop |
| |
| One of my all time favourites. Reggae with unity and a great chorus |
| much like Jammin and Trenchtown Rock amongst others. Carlies excellent |
| one drop drum pattern is very evident. |
| |
| Ride Natty Ride |
| |
| Rasta on a mission, with some great harmonica from Lee Jaffe. The song |
| also throws in some lyrics from track "Cornerstone", it also promises |
| apocalyptic fire. Anoter great song from the album. |
| |
| Ambush In The Night |
| |
| The song refers to his own encounter with gunmen from 76. Bob attacks |
| those who keep the people ignorant and therefor malleable enough to |
| shoot at each other in the name of pollitical parties. This is yet |
| another one of my favourite songs. |
| |
| Wake Up & Live |
| |
| This is another sub "Exodus" song. Looping one riff with a skin tight |
| horn section offering some contrast. Bob urges the band forward in a |
| funky, James Brown style. |

+-------------------------------[Release Notes]------------------------------+
| |
| Released: 30 April 1976. Highest Chart Positions: UK: 15, USA: 8 |
| |
| Having acheived a considerable coup with "Live!", Bob returned to the |
| studio for his next album, full of songs that would be entirely new to |
| his now burgeoning white audience, even if some were familiar to |
| Jamaican listeners. The spirit of the album was very different from |
| that of "Natty Dread", the previous studio set, less upbeat and more |
| mellow. The album produced the classic song "War". Again the album was |
| record at Harry J's but this time Joe Gibb's studio's in Kingston was |
| also used. |
| |
| Musicians: Bob Marley, Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, Tyrone Downie, |
| "The I-Threes": Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt, Alvin |
| Petterson, Earl Smith, Don Kinsey, Al Anderson, Tommy McCook, Glen Da |
| Costa and David Madden. |
| |
| * * * |
| |
| Positive Vibration |
| |
| Bob declares arguements are prayers to the devil. A nice way to start |
| the album. This track was also used to open shows, always a great way |
| to start the show off and no different here on the album. |
| |
| Roots, Rock, Reggae |
| |
| Roots, Rock, Reggae borrows a couple of lyrics from "Rainbow Country" |
| here. It seems as though this is an appeal from Bob to the US music |
| business, with the line "Play I on the R&B" asking to be a part of the |
| US black radio programming. |
| |
| Johnny Was |
| |
| "Johnny Was" offers a lyric about a son's death. The story behind the |
| song is that a Jamaican ghetto rudie is show in the street leaving his |
| mum wondering where she went wrong, "Wondering how she can work it out |
| / Now she knows that the wages of sin is death / Gift of Jah is life". |
| Bob seems to be implying that if the kid had been brought up a Rasta |
| none of this would have happend. The man in question is rumoured to be |
| Carlton Wilson, brother of singer Delroy, though there is no hard |
| evidence to confirm or deny this. The song was only played live once |
| at Tower Theatre in 76, and after listening to it, it makes you wonder |
| why, as it was such a great performance. |
| |
| Cry To Me |
| |
| Again Bob returns to the mid 60's era. This time with a cover of the |
| Wailers song from 1966. A great "Cry To Me" acoustic version of this |
| song is featured on "The Complete Wailers 67-72 Part3 Box Set". A must |
| have song. |
| |
| Want More |
| |
| A slowbeat onedrop examines greed and jealousy. Some great guitar work |
| from Don Kinsey is featured. Another one of my favourite songs, |
| especially live. |
| |
| Crazy Baldhead |
| |
| With the banshee wail at the start, Bob is again in militant style. |
| Lyrics were taken from The Wailers track Freedom Time (circa 1967) and |
| reworked into Crazy Baldhead. The song was segued into "Running Away" |
| during live concerts, which like War/No More Trouble made sense. |
| |
| Who The Cap Fit |
| |
| Who The Cap Fit is a remake of an obscure Wailers single "Man To Man" |
| (1971). Bob sings: "Your worst enemy could be your best friend / And |
| your best friend your worst enemy". |
| |
| Night Shift |
| |
| Another reworking of an old song this time It's Alright (1970/71). The |
| song casts Bob as a forklift driver he is refering to his days working |
| nights at The Chrysler motor plant in Delware, USA 1966, combined with |
| a warehouse job operating a forklift which he took in the city. |
| |
| War |
| |
| Another Marley classic. The lyrics were taken from speech from Emperor |
| Haile Selassie's UN 1968 speech. This album version doesn't quite seem |
| to have the fire & fierceness of the live performance. This was sequed |
| with No More Trouble in concert, producing a wonderful song. Bob felt |
| strongly ebough to make this an anthem. |
| |
| An interesting note is that the album version is missing 30seconds and |
| an extra verse, the demo includes the extra 30 seconds and why the LP |
| version is missing the extra verse is a mystery and crime. It enhances |
| what is already a powerful and classic track. The missing verse is as |
| follows: |
| |
| |
| "Until bigotry and pejudice, malicious, |
| inhuman self-interest, |
| Have been replaced by understanding and tolerence and good will, |
| yeah, war, |
| Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, |
| Equal in the eyes of The Almighty, war, everywhere is war" |
| |
| |
| |
| Rat Race |
| |
| The closing song on the album is another gem. "Rat Race" examines the |
| arms race and finds it a Rat Race. Mentioning collective security on |
| the road of sudden destruction. Bob declares that "Rasta dont work for |
| no C.I.A". |

| |
| Released: 25 October 1974. Highest Chart Positions: UK: 43, USA: 99 |
| |
| 1974 and Bob is now an official solo artist for the first time since |
| his debut couple of singles for Leslie Kong in '62. Gone are Peter and |
| Bunny who went off to start their own solo careers, and so Bob enlists |
| the help of The I-Threes. The three members of the all female backing |
| trio were Rita Marley Marcia Griffiths & Judy Mowatt. Bob also brought |
| in Bernard "Touter" Harvey on keyboards and Al Anderson on lead guitar |
| The album was again recorded in Jamaica and again at Harry J's Studio. |
| |
| While the "Natty Dread" album was not a huge commercial breakthrough, |
| it was undoubteadly several steps in the right direction. Natty Dread |
| appeared in the UK album charts for 5 weeks, it's highest position |
| being 43. Again Bob went back to some old classics but reworking them, |
| Lively Up Yourself, Them Belly Full and Bend Down Low. Natty Dread is |
| a must have record for all Bob Marley fans, with every song being a |
| timeless classic. Alittle known fact is that there are different album |
| releases, as while the album was being mixed in London, provisional |
| mixes of certain songs were put to acetate including some half a dozen |
| alternate mixes of "Natty Dread" itself, and are now in the hands of a |
| sound system owner in London |
| |
| Musicians: Bob Marley Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, Bernard "Touter" |
| Harvey, Al Anderson, The I-Threes (Rita Marley Marcia Griffiths & Judy |
| Mowatt), Earl "Wya" Lindo, Tyrone Downie, Glen Da Costa, David Madden |
| and Tommy McCook. |
| |
| * * * |
| |
| Lively Up Yourself |
| |
| Bob opens his first solo LP with an updated version of the old classic |
| Lively Up Yourself. Like Get Up Stand Up was an appeal for involement |
| as an opener only without the militancy style. |
| |
| No Woman No Cry |
| |
| This was it, the song the world had been waiting for. The best alltime |
| rock classic, never mind reggae or Bob classics. In a recent poll done |
| by a music magazine, No Woman No Cry crept in at number 7 in the best |
| single of all time. If you were to ask anyone to name a Marley song - |
| this would be their first response. A absolute belter when played live |
| non-english speaking crowds would sing in unison. This version however |
| is thiner sounding. It's a short skank and high on spirit. Bob recalls |
| the suffering of his past. And how "Georgie would make the fire light" |
| The writing credit goes to that of Vincent Ford. |
| |
| Them Belly Full (But We Hungry) |
| |
| "Them Belly Full" was about physical and spiritual hunger. It had been |
| prviously released as "Bellyfull" & "Belly Full" on "Tuff Gong" 7inch |
| singles. The LP version retained much of the rootsiness of the earler |
| pressings. Bob urges: "Forget your weakness and dance / Forget your |
| sickness and dance". |
| |
| Rebel Music (Three O'Clock Roadblock) |
| |
| Emphasising reggae's place as a music of the Jamaicans poor, a role it |
| still plays today even if it is not Bobs music that performs it. Rebel |
| Music presents a picture of a Rasta being stopped by the police in a |
| land where everyone in theory is free. |
| |
| So Jah Seh |
| |
| Bob unleashes his Rasta consciousness in a way he hadnt done on record |
| too often in the past few years. Bob offers the word of God as a proof |
| that his kids, and by extension, the other children of the poor, shall |
| not starve for want of the monies class charity. Once again a popping |
| machine drum takes precidence over a live kit, and set against a tight |
| dry horn section and the light, skipping melody. Bob urges everyone to |
| come together and unite "Cause Puss and Dog, they get together / Whats |
| worng with loving one another". A born stormer live and one of my all |
| time favourites. |
| |
| Natty Dread |
| |
| The titletrack is the next classic that Bob delivers. Similar to Kinky |
| Reggae in the sense that Bob moves from street to street, hearing kids |
| shouting "Natty Dread" at him, which he does not take as an insult by |
| merely a statement of glorious fact. The song was released as a "Tuff |
| Gong" 7" single as Knotty Dread, that version is different to the that |
| of the album |
| |
| Bend Down Low |
| |
| Bob return to rockstready for another look at one of his more enduring |
| 60's hits. Very similar to the original. |
| |
| Talkin' Blues |
| |
| Another song with a rock-solid skank behind is like Them Belly Full. |
| Bob depicts himself as a sufferer no roof over his head and only rocks |
| for his pillow. Also featured is the mind blowing line "Cause I feel |
| like bombing a church / Now that you know the preacher is lying". That |
| one line cause the song a considerable controversual reputation. The |
| last verse may well have been cut at a later date and pieced in due to |
| the fact That Bob's voice seems to change conciderably. Take a listen |
| and see what you think. |
| |
| Revolution |
| |
| A slow chunky skank closes the album. Bob also tells you to "Never |
| make a politician grant you a favour /They will always want to control |
| you forever". Great song to close Bob's first solo album. |

+-------------------------------[Release Notes]------------------------------+
| |
| Released: 4 May 1973. Highest Chart Positions: UK: -, USA: 171 |
| |
| The Wailers produced their first album for Chris Blackwell in 1973. |
| Blackwell had given 4,000 to The Wailers to make the album. Many |
| thought that he would not see any return for his investment, Wow were |
| they wrong. Blackwell presented The Wailers as an alternative to |
| mainstream rock. Bob's locks were really growing and their rebel image |
| was being played up to help captivate the white audience of hippeish |
| rock. |
| |
| The sleevenote that accompanied the album was littered with mistakes, |
| managing to spell Peter and Bunny's name incorrectly (Mackinntosh and |
| Livingstone as opposed to the correct spellings McIntosh & Livingston) |
| Though the mistakes in the sleevenotes were all but forgotten as this |
| was the only reggae album to come in a flip-up sleeve shaped like a |
| Zippo lighter. The album was recorded at Dynamic, Harry J's, Randy's |
| and Kingston Studio's. Originally the album was scheduled to be a low |
| key affair it was meant to be a rare LP that was to be released on the |
| Blue Mountain label. The matrix was to be BML 2001. 'Baby, Baby We've |
| Got A Date was released on the Blue Mountain label and received strong |
| reviews in the UK music press. |
| |
| Musicians: Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Livingston, Aston Barrett, |
| Carlton Barrett, Earl "Wya" Lindo, Tyrone Townie, Winston Wright, Glen |
| Adams, Alva Lewis, Willy San Francisco, Chris Karen, Rita Marley and |
| Marcia Griffiths. |
| |
| * * * |
| |
| Concrete Jungle |
| |
| This is how you introduce yourself to the world. "Concrete Jungle" was |
| the first song on the album and it starts it off in fine fashion. The |
| Wailers sounded much more together and much better produced. |
| |
| Slave Driver |
| |
| The LP title was derived from this song: "Slave driver, catch a fire, |
| so you can get burned". Peter Tosh produces a great scratchy guitar |
| performance. The Wailers harmonies are again in great force. Is there |
| a better indictment or a more succinct indictment of Capitalism? The |
| lines in the song where he says: 'Good God this illiteracy / is just a |
| machine to make money'. Keep 'em stupid, keep 'em illiterate. |
| |
| 400 Years |
| |
| Peter Tosh goes back to a track from the "Soul Rebel's" album. Though |
| this rendition is of a much slower tempo, and the attitude is a lot |
| more laid-back and meandering. |
| |
| Stop That Train |
| |
| Again Tosh goes back to an old song, this time the version is much |
| slower and of a gospellish style. |
| |
| Baby, Baby We've Got A Date (Rock It Baby) |
| |
| This was the first Wailers single on the Island label (UK BlueMountain |
| it was given the name of "Baby, Baby We've Got A Date"), though on the |
| US Island label it was known as Rock It Baby The song was also pressed |
| for Tuff Gong as "Rock It Babe". Female vocals are added most probably |
| from Rita and Marica. |
| |
| Stir It Up |
| |
| This one was from the rocksteady era that has been remade. A year |
| previous to the release from The Wailers, Johnny Nash had a hit with |
| it. This version is very neat and precise. |
| |
| Kinky Reggae |
| |
| 'Kinky' was a catchphrase in the early 1970's in Jamaica. Very similar |
| to "Natty Dread" in the sense that Bob wanders through various places |
| meeting various people. During the song Bob is unable to decide if he |
| wants to live in a kinky part of town or not. |
| |
| No More Trouble |
| |
| Carlton Barrett's one drop drum style is particularly magnificent here |
| This song was eventually segued into War during live performances, was |
| always a part of the live shows whether it be on it's own or coupled |
| with War. Seguing the two together made perfect sense too. |
| |
| Midnight Ravers |
| |
| A rootsy track to close out the album. Magnificent harmonies on this |
| version. The apocalyptic vision of confused sexes and 10,000 horseless |
| chariots must have seemed stranged to people not familiar with Bob's |
| Book ofRevelations imagery. The song is absolute magic when Bob played |
| it live. A brilliant song to end The Wailers debut album for Island. |

+-------------------------------[Release Notes]------------------------------+
| |
| Arguably the most influential live reggae album ever, "Babylon by Bus" |
| captures Bob Marley and the Wailers during the European leg of their |
| "Kaya" tour in the spring of 1978. The success of this set was not |
| entirely unexpected, however. If the universal and widespread acclaim |
| of Live!, their first concert recording was an indicator, all involved |
| knew that a Bob Marley and the Wailers performance contained unique |
| energies and a vibe all of it's own. Sharply contrasting the somewhat |
| pastoral grooves of the "Kaya" album, Babylon by Bus possesses a more |
| aggressive sound which was a trademark of this particular band. Tyrone |
| Downie's progressive rock keyboard flavors on "Exodus," as well his |
| judiciously located percussive clavinet accentuations during "Punky |
| Reggae Party" lock in with Aston Familyman Barrett's viscous basslines |
| to create something akin to psychedelic reggae or even along the lines |
| of Parliament / Funkadelic. Likewise, "Heathen" highlights Anderson's |
| explosive guitar leads which are distinctly reminiscent of Eddie Hazel |
| from his early days with Funkadelic. The lead guitar solos on "Rebel |
| Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)" & "Is This Love" also define Al Andersons |
| innovative and decidedly Western guitar style, as it is seamlessly and |
| thoroughly integrated with Marley and the Wailers. As with their first |
| concert album, "Babylon by Bus" highlights material from the band's |
| history up to that point. "No More Trouble" is placed in an entirely |
| new context when linked with "War," which features lyrics taken from a |
| United Nations speech given by Haille Selassie I the Ethiopian emperor |
| considered the father of modern Rastafarianism. Other early tracks, |
| such as "Kinky Reggae" and "Stir It Up," prove to be not the only |
| favorites of concert attendees. More recent offerings of "Is This Love |
| "Jammin'" & "Exodus" actually garner the most audible support. Without |
| question, Babylon by Bus is an integral component of any popular music |
| collection. |
