Bob Marley and the Wailers' dictum: "If you are a big tree, then we are the small axe." This upgraded edition of Countryman's original soundtrack is packed with eight Wailers tracks, mostly from their '70s Island albums but also including the faster, pre-Burnin' "Small Axe." The world-reggae fusion of then-new Chris Blackwell signing Wally Badarou also fills many minutes here, mostly going in one ear and out the other, but pleasantly. Better are offerings from Lee Perry, Toots and the Maytals, Steel Pulse, Aswad, and Dennis Brown. The lesser-known Fabulous 5, Jah Lion, and Human Cargo push the upbeat mood along, contributing to a generous 75-minute disc that ultimately builds a mood of its own. --Rickey Wright

"This soundtrack is great because it includes all the full versions of the songs that are in the movie only for a few seconds. There's a song on here that I've been looking for everywhere called "Ooh! Aah!" by the Fabulous Five. And to the best of my knowledge you can't find that song anywhere else. I've been looking for that song ever since I heard it on ksbr in the late 80's(!) The whole cd's bomb tho' & there are so many classic tracks that you can't go wrong with this selection."
This is a true classic

"whether you've seen the movie or not(it's a must)the music serves admirably as the perfect reggae primer for new reggae fans.of all the reggae collections(except,perhaps,'various reggae refreshers'(island)(incl 'night nurse').this is a cd i return to daily.i also listen to tool and panjabi mc.i believe that in one of the bob marley tracks, the artist is weeping for a moment.ain't no filler here.incidentally,wally badarou is a genius.long live toots n the maytalls!"
