Robert Marley and The Wailers… Classic –

Well, we’ve been stocking Reggae music on this site for a few years now, it was probably about time we got our hands on a Bob Marley record.

Say what you want about him, Bob Marley was – and still is an ambassador for reggae music worldwide, his talent as a songwriter is unquestionable.

First up, on the A Side – Burnin And Lootin, written around 1973, with it’s brilliant intro section, undeniable hook and song progression…. a great piece!

Flip it for ‘Rastaman Chant’ builds from a nyabinghi rhythm and Bob Marley’s vocals and his backing group sway over a slowly pulsing rhythm in an upful, yet solemn way.

Produced by Tuff Gong Records, 127 King Street, Kingston.
