Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 126/500! The major label debut for Marley & The Wailers was originally released on Island Records in 1973. The album established the group as international superstars with its socially aware lyrics, confrontational subjects, and optimistic view for an oppression-free future. The recording features classics like "Concrete Jungle", "Kinky Reggae" and "Stir It Up". "Catch A Fire hit the white rock audience with the force of revelation. At the time, the Wailers were truly a band, fronted by three extraordinary singers in Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston, and the rhythm section of Aston and Carlton Barrett defined the power and sensuality of the reggae beat (anchored by the kick-drum thumping on the two and the four). "Stir It Up" and "Kinky Reggae" sway like hammocks under the Jamaican sun. Island boss Chris Blackwell subtly overdubbed and remixed the original Jamaican sessions for international ears without diluting the band's exotic power." - Musicians: Bob Marley, lead vocals, acoustic guitar Peter McIntosh, piano, organ, guitar, vocals Bunny Livingston, congas, bongos, vocals Aston (Family Man) Barrett, bass guitar Carlton (Carly) Barrett, drums Features: • 180g Vinyl • Resealable clear plastic protective cover • Made in Germany Selections: 1.
