Personal appreciation of the product

design: 5/5
note: 'We blubbling on the top 100' Bob Marley sings on the song ROOTS, ROCK, REGGAE. Well, the album even made better than this: it went straignt in the Brithish Top Ten and after an intensive marketing campaign, it reached No.8 in USA. Bob Marley & The Wailers were now reaching international recognition.

The album contains new versions of two songs that were previously selfproduced or recorded for other producers: CRY TO ME (1965) and WHO THE CAP FIT (aka: MAN TO MAN (1970). The bonus track JAH LIVE was issued on a 7-inch single not long after Haile Selassie passed away, it was Bob Marley's answer to people who were saying that Rastafarian God had died. This song was available on CD since 1992, when the 4-CD boxset Songs Of Freedom was issued.

The singles that were issued in Jamaica for this album are: RAT RACE and ROOTS ROCK REGGAE (backed with EAR). The singles that were issued in UK are: JOHNNY WAS (with CRY TO ME on the B-side) and ROOTS ROCK REGGAE.

The remastered edition has a very nice 12-page booklet that inlcude the lyrics. It replace the initial CD release dating back from 1988, that came with a 8-page black & white booklet.
The last colum represent the song number on my checklist
