CD Reviews

Early stuff on cd...later stuff on dvd
J. Holmes | yokohama, japan | 11/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"i've always loved the old Wailers material, their rough and raw jamaican edge and slick sweeet vocal harmonies have such a powerful effect. this collection features some of the great Lee Perry produced stuff from 1970 and 1971 like "Duppy Conqueror" & "Mr. Brown." i'm sure all of this material has been released several hundreds of times throughout the years, but this compilation serves as a nice introduction to the early years of this musical giant. the dvd is a live show from 1980 on the Survival tour and is a nice addition to the set."
Classic!

"For any Bob Marley fans this is a must have. Listen to original versions of many classic tracks as well as some very rare material as well. The second disc features a lot of peter tosh songs. Anyway, for the price I saw this listed at, buy it imediately, you will not be disappointed."
