Bob Marley & the Wailers' early recordings have been reissued so many times and in so many inferior packages that it's hard to tell which compilations are worthwhile, but Jad/Koch's three-volume The Complete Bob Marley & the Wailers 1967-1972 is the one to get, whether as a box set or as individually packaged volumes.

Overview

Bob Marley & the Wailers' early recordings have been reissued so many times and in so many inferior packages that it's hard to tell which compilations are worthwhile, but Jad/Koch's three-volume The Complete Bob Marley & the Wailers 1967-1972 is the one to get, whether as a box set or as individually packaged volumes. Although it's technically not complete, since a handful of tracks ("Hammer," "High Tide or Low Tide," "Soul Shake Down Party," "Caution," "Back Out & Do It Twice") could not be included due to legal reasons, it contains the great majority of the main recordings the group made, including unreleased cuts, alternate takes and dubs. Furthermore, the liner notes are exhaustive and authoritative, helping make the series the one definitive source for fans. Selassie Is the Chapel is the second volume of the three discs, spotlights the years 1968-70, and features such highlights as the ultra-rare title track (a Rastafarian adaptation of "Crying in the Chapel"), "Tread Oh," "Don't Rock My Boat," "Give Me a Ticket" (aka "The Letter"), and a funky medley of "Black Progress"/"(Say It Loud) I'm Black and I'm Proud."
