These really should be billed to the Wailers, not Bob Marley solo, but anyway it's very good ska and early reggae music from 1963-1966, showing their doo wop roots at its quaintest, but also going into full-bore ska on "Simmer Down" and "Dancing Shoes." The influence of group harmony early American soul is also heard to fine effect on cuts like "One Love," "I Made a Mistake," and "It Hurts to Be Alone."
