CD Reviews

Idiots messed with the original version of this album. Unbel

"I got this a couple years ago when it was released and it's not even close, the overdubs and such crap covered up a gem of an album. Buy this double cd (hopefully on sale like me) or simply buy only the eleven jamaican tracks (cd 1) from itunes. It will be worth it, every song except for 'midnight ravers' (the only song Chris Blackwell had sense enough to leave alone) is extremely different from the "original"... and oh so much better. Fire this one up and you might never come down. Church!"
You have to get the original Jamaican versions of these song

"Seriously, listen to how good they sound & how bad the previously released reworked version is in comparison. The reviewer below me brings up a valid point about the length of the album overall compared to the price, however you would not benefit to search for a bargain priced version of the previously released aka watered down version. You have to get the originals and not even listen to the reworked version because it's not even close to how good the real album truly is. And that goes for a lot of Marley material, which is why the bootleg & rare albums are so good, as well as these original Jamican mixes."

"Having the Tuff Gong release remastered from the original master tapes and now this, I can say that the remixing adds clarity and lowers the bass boom somewhat...The wonderful Jamaican release is the key to getting this CD for lovers of Marley..the music is roots, simpler,harmonies somewhat more prominent in places,less rock effects than the the second CD with 2 tracks not released on original "western" release...no filler here...truly a totally different album in sound and atmosphere..indeed the length of both cd's is a real issue,way too short,the artwork and lyrics are nice but again it is a historical document from an amazing star for dedicated lovers only."
