The Wailers (1962-1972)
version 3.0
(August 2009)
INTRODUCTION
Like any Wailers fan, after acquiring the regular Island recordings, I aimed for the 1962-1972 material. But I was somehow lost in the quantity of
material available on the market. This is how I got involved, in 2001, in this never ending project. At first, it was only a personal list of songs with the
year they were recorded. But then I added the singles, the remixes... and the project just kept on growing bigger and bigger. As I spent over a
thousand hours on this research, it made no sense to keep this list private, so I decided to share it with all the Wailers fans around the world.
This list can never be consider finish, as new information always surface. Just in automn 2004, two major books were published, revealing tons of
crucial information. These books are The Definitive Discography (by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson) and His Musical Legacy (by Jeremy
Collingwood). So far, I haven’t got the time to check my list with these books. Many additional information can be found if you purchase them. My
intention is not to compete with these books, but to give an alphabetical list of songs recorded between 1962 and 1972, along with their versions,
dubplates, remixes and overdubs.
To the best of my knowledge, this list to includes all the studio songs and their versions. I made my best to include all the overdubs, remixes and dubplates,
but some may remain unknown to me. Some demo songs from the JAD recording sessions seems to be kept aside for further releases, a impressive list
of unknown titles have been registered in the Caymen Music Catalogue and can be found at page 165 in the book The Definitive Discography.
English being my second language, please excuse my grammatical mistakes. I will try to included a revised version of this list on my webpage at least
once a year. If you wish to contact me, you can do it at irieites72 (at) yahoo (dot) ca.
Enjoy,
Christian

NOTE: this track is a real dub version of SATISFY MY SOUL BABE. As “dub music” has emerge in the mid seventies, I suggest that this specific track was probably not released before 1975.

NOTE (WK): it was Bruno Blum who wrote in a mail that the pressing of the vinyl is made in Germany (for singles 006, 007, 008, 009). I do not know how he is doing it exactly. Pressing
vinyls in Germany, shipping them to Jamaica, maybe there the labels were added, and shipping back for distribution from France. Sounds crazy but seems to be a cheap way of
handling. Maybe it is easier to handle these singles as “Jamaican singles”. •

Danny Sims in the mid-eighties, which seems to indicate that it was once recorded. But Roger could not find a prove until now. He found out that nobody owns the tapes, nobody ever heard such a track
and no one could ever confirm it was recorded.

NOTE (WK): there are a few songs (NICE TIME, BEND DOWN LOW and HYPOCRITES) that are sometimes connected to Clancy Eccles, but in fact he isnt involved in any Wailers songs production. This wrong
info comes from a licensing deal of Clancey Eccles and Rita Marley. (info: DD)
NOTE: the first official single on the Wail’n Soul’m label. DEM A FI GET A BEATIN’ is the very first single released on Wail’n Soul’m, but only 3 copies have been found so far.
••• CORRECTION: I don’t know where I took the iformation that DEM A FI GET A BEATIN’ was the very first single... the song, according to my notes, was record in 1968. •••
NOTE: Jackie Jackson first session (4 songs): HYPOCRITES, NICE TIME, THANK YOU LORD and (?).
NOTE: the song will be re-recorded in 1968, produced by Johnny Nash & Arthur Jenkins. Three years later, it will be used for the medley produced by Lee Perry: ALL IN ONE. In 1974, Bob will record it again
for the album Natty Dread. And apparently, the song was also recorded with Lee Perry in November 1976, during the same session that brought us JAH LIVE and SMILE JAMAICA.This last take is still unreleased.
The information is coming from the booklet of the 4-CD boxset: I Am The Upsetter. Bunny Wailer will re-record it in 1994 for the album Bunny Wailer’s Tribute To Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary (1995).

SHORT VERSION (JC): The version included on the WIRL single last 2m40

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: It’s interesting to notice that the song BEND DOWN LOW is longer on the JAD Canadian and French singles compare to the WIRL single. The song MELLOW MOOD is shorter on the JAD Canadian and
French singles compare to the WIRL single. Weird.
NOTE: this song was not recorded twice for JAD, as the book The Definitive Discography may suggest. The session NICE TIME, SOUL ALMIGHTY and BEND DOWN LOW (page 31) is a mistake. NICE TIME and
BEND DOWN LOW were only recorded one time (see page 33 of the book for correct information). The song SOUL ALMIGHTY was not recorded for JAD, but only for Lee Perry in 1970. It is true that JAD
made a remix of the song in 1988, which was also included on the 1996 CD: Soul Almighty – The Formative Years.
NOTE: The song was previously recorded by The Wailers in 1966 and will also be re-recorded in 1974 for the Natty Dread album. Apparently, the song was also recorded with Lee Perry in November 1976,
during the same session that brought us JAH LIVE and SMILE JAMAICA.This last take is still unreleased. The information is coming from the booklet of the 4-CD boxset: I Am The Upsetter.
NOTE: A 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.
NOTE: In the beginning, I usumed that there was a Jamaican, a US and a French pressing for the single, but Roger writes that the single is from Canada and not USA.

MIX DESCRIPTION (WK): With additional horns and strings.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: The single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD was marketed with different mixes than the one issued in The Complete Wailers catalogue and The JAD/Universal Remastered. The year when that
remix was made is unknown. I received samples of those two new mixes on MP3 in October 2006. So far I, I wasn’t able to find the comple songs. Some scratches can be heard in the background
confirming that they were recorded from a vinyl. Jeremy Collingwood wasn’t aware of the existance of these mixes. Werner mentionned them to him in January 2008. He owns the three JAD original singles
(Jamaican, French and Canadian). These three singles all have the same mixes, aka ‘The New York Mix’, (except some are shorter, see upper for more details). According to him, those new founded mix
would be posthumous remixes.

letters of their name they came up with P.E.G. as the production team”. According to him, that song is available on a 4-track promotional 12-inch single, which is probably the A-side of the single I have listed
above. Which would mean that the A-side might have two version of BEND DOWN LOW, one by UB40 and the other one by... (unknown). Any more information is welcome. He also mentionned that a 5-song
demo is circulating among UB40 fans. The whole demo was probably done for that BEND DOWN LOW session. DESCRIPTION OF THE DEMO: “The tape has some cut off versions, a total of 5 of which 3 are full
versions. One is the version as on Black Progress, one is the instrumental without Wailers/Marley vocals, one is an unreleased version of Bend Down Low by UB40 with Wailers vocals.”

But I Do (65)
NEVER RECORDED
(WK: Roger Steffens confirms that Bob wrote a song named “But I Do” in the Studio One period, but also confirms that it was never recorded)
(Marcia Griffths recorded a song (in 1971) with that title, is it the same song? Or would that be a cover song by Clarence “Frogman” Henry? It was included on an album named Pied Piper (Trojan TRLS 26).
That album also include a song named Your Love. A single for the song was released the following year, and the B-side was : I Don’t Care)
ACCORDING TO THIS WEBSITE, THERE WOULD BE A SINGLE FOR THE SONG BUT I DO (http://hem.passagen.se/ielbo/wail/wailers.htm).IT SEEMS TO BE A MISTAKE AS THERE ARE NO SUCH SINGLE IN THE TROJAN DISCOGRAPHY.

MUSICIANS (RS+LJP): Thin Leg (drums), Aston Barrett (bass), Peter Tosh (guitar), Peter Tosh (keyboards), Noel Simms (percussion), Peter Tosh (clavinet).
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: recorded with The Wailers. • NOTE: both songs NO MERCY and CAN’T BLAME THE YOUTH were recorded during the same session, in late 1972 (info: Honorary Citizen).
NOTE: there is various informations when it comes to the year the track was recorded. The boxset Honorary Citizen state late 1972, but I have witness a few mistakes inside the booklet... The Intelligent
Diplomat website state 1974. In my old notes, I had 1973, but the most reliable source to my oppinion, The Definitive Discography, place it in late 1972. There is a saying that this song was considered to
be included on the Catch A Fire album.... still the single might as been recorded in 1973. The Intel Diplo label was established in August 1971.
NOTE (AC): the single was issued in '73, but according to 2 other sources it was released in both 1974 (as stated in Distant Drums) and 1975 (a discography book I have). These are however re-presses of the 1972 recording.
NOTE: Distant Drums gives another matrix number, different than the one on the single I have: RRS PT 2259.
NOTE: this song will be recorded again in 1976 and again, released only on a 7-inch single.

NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson that mention the existance of a 1991’ Overdub in their book The Definitive Discography. I do not own the 7-inch singlle to compare with the original song, but they also say
that the song featured on the Heartbeat release The Toughest is the original without overdub. When I compare that version of the song to the the one included on One Love At Studio One, I do not hear any differences.
They say that there is additional drums and percussion on the Hearbeat releases.
NOTE: re-recorded by The Wailers for the album Best Of The Wailers (1970) and by Peter for the album Mystic Man (1978).

NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: the song was also recorded and self-produced by The Wailers on a different session, in April 1968.
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate lower were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: I ASKED MYSELF*, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, THE WORLD IS CHANGING*, THERE SHE GOES, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES, MELLOW MOOD,
CHANCES ARE, HAMMER*, THE WORLD IS CHANGING. Could these song all be from the same session? Probably not as Bunny is doing backing vocals on the song THE WORLD IS CHANGING and some of
the other songs from 1968 were recorded while he was in jail. That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972, before these ten songs: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE,
OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases, except the one with an asterisk.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: WK suggest that there should be a single for CHANCES ARE released around 1968, as he never read that this song was previously unreleaased.

••• NOTE (WK): it was Bruno Blum who wrote in a mail that the pressing of the vinyl is made in Germany (for singles 006, 007, 008, 009). I do not know how he is doing it exactly. Pressing
vinyls in Germany, shipping them to Jamaica, maybe there the labels were added, and shipping back for distribution from France. Sounds crazy but seems to be a cheap way of
handling. Maybe it is easier to handle these singles as “Jamaican singles”.

NOTE: both singles SMALL AXE and CONCRETE JUNGLE have been issued at the same time in Jamaica, same thing for MY DESIRE/BRING IT UP (The Soulettes). (GK124) That would logically be May 1971, if
The Wailers recorded the song after leaving Lee Perry, but SMALL AXE was released as a single in February in UK. Would CONCRETE JUNGLE be recorded for the Tuff Gong label while The Wailers were still
officialy working with Perry? • NOTE: The Tuff Gong singles BRING IT UP / MY DESIRE was released the same week as The Wailers’ SMALL AXE / CONCRETE JUNGLE: what a week (PP2) (to my knowledge,
there is no such single existing, unless Jeremy Collingwood referes to two separate singles).

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

SHORT VERSION: the version included on The UK Complete Upsetter Singles last 8 seconds shorte.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: it’s an instrumental but it opens with DJ U Roy. The instrumental is quite different than ALL IN ONE. It use the same riddim, but has a different flavour.
NOTE: on the CD Roots Of A Ledgend, the song is falsly credited to the DJ Sir Lord Comic And The Upsetter. Laurence Cane-Honeysett wrote in the liner notes of The Complete UK Upsetter Singles
Collection Volume 3: “U. Roy contribution to the track was limited to an opening introduction in which he pays homage to Sir Lord Comic, by citing some of the veteran DJ’s best-known phrases”.
NOTE: I compare the three version that I have: A) The Complete Upsetter Collection, B) The Complete UK Upsetter Singles Collection and C) Roots Of A Legend. The first one has a noise reduction that
affect quite the feeling of the song. Second one still have all the “isshh” for the master tape and third one is located in between, sometimes feel to be recorded from 7-inch single.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

information he gave me, the song would be exclusive for download on the Verizon website. ‘These are ‘digital only’ releases, at least for now’. (info received in early December 2007).

NOTE : I have no information on this dub plate. It sounds like it could have been made in early seventies. I put 1973, but it’s only a guess. The original track was recorded in 1971 and Big Youth’s DJ Version

NOTE (MS): the single is advertised with “Bob is back from London with a new No.1 Scorcher CRAVEN CHOKE PUPPY”. Did Bob went to London in 1971? In my notes I know he stayed in Sweden in 1971,
but it’s only in January 1972 that he moved to London. My notes also sais that he flew back to London in August 1972. Following this info, it would probably means that the single was released in February
/March (depending when he came back) or in August/September 1972. (GK127) (CW811)
NOTE: Bunny Wailer will re-record the song in 1994 for the album Bunny Wailer’s Tribute To Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary (1995).

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a Peter Tosh solo song, it was recorded without The Wailers. • NOTE: Honorary Citizen boxset says this song was recorded in 1970, but this a wrong info.
NOTE: The book The Definitive Discography place this recording in the summer of 1970.
NOTE: Interesting fact to notice: this is the instrumental version of LITTLE GREEN APPLES, with an extra organ track.
NOTE: according to the sleeve of ARISE BLACK MAN, this song was produced by Bunny “Striker” Lee, but when I learned that it’s the VERSION of Little Green Apple that is most likely produced by
Clive Chin (if I refer to the matrix initials), I think it’s relevant to conclude that it’s produced by Chin. If this is the case, the line up of musicians is probably different.
NOTE: this song was only issued in the UK in 1969. No jamaican single exist. This information was confirmed with Roger Steffens’ book: The Definitive Discography.
NOTE: according to Unity Record discography, the song THE CRIMSON PIRATE is a version of Slim Smith’s SOMEBODY TO LOVE (aka: EVERYBODY NEED SOMEBODY). The single on Unity (UN-515, UK) has
SOMEBODY TO LOVE (by slim Smith)/ CONFUSION (by Slim Smith). I also saw the Jamaican picture (released also on Unity Records), but I don’t know what song is on the B-side.

NOTE: The first Wailers recording session took place in late June or early July 1964. Older documents such as books or CD sleeves, sometimes refers to a late 1963 recording session, but this is not longer accurate. In 2005,
the recording session was clearly documented by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson in the book The Definitive Discography.
NOTE (RS+LJP): recorded during the thir session, in mid July 1964: TELL THEM LORD, CHRISMAS IS HERE and DESTINY.
NOTE (LJP): Blossom Johnson was the grilfriend of Joe Higgs. • NOTE (WK): she participate on two songs: DESTINY and TELL THEM LORD.
NOTE: in my previous notes, I had found a single sold on eBay with DESTINY/DESTINY VERSION, but this information is proven to be wrong: the book The Definitive Discography does not mention the single
and Gael confirms that such a single does not exist

NOTE (WK): I found that Tappa Zukie started recording in 1971. There is Trojan “best of Tappa Zukie” compilation starting 1974. The DJ versions of THANK YOU LORD, MELLOW MOOD and HYPOCRITES are
probably among the first songs recorded by Tappa Zukie. I would say (only guessing): recorded circa 1971/73.

is March 1969. (info: All Music Guide). This album include SAY IT LOUD (I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD), I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO CRY CRY CRY, LICKING STICK-LICKING STICK and I LOVE YOU, four songs that
inspired Bob in his writing process.

Danny Sims in the mid-eighties, which seems to indicate that it was once recorded. But Roger could not find a prove until now. He found out that nobody owns the tapes, nobody ever heard such a track
and no one could ever confirm it was recorded.

NOTE: the song featured on the CD Soul Adventurer turns too fast. The problem has been corrected on the boxset Man To Man, plus the sound is better. [Speed reduction: -5.7]
NOTE: usually Jeremy Collingwood use the way it was written on the Jamaican 7-inch for the proper title. In this case, he named the song I LIKE IT LIKE THAT. I haven’t found any 7-inch with this title so far
and Roger Steffens don’t mention any. So I will leave it as DON’T ROCK MY BOAT (ALTERNATE TAKE 2) until I found a picture with the title I LIKE IT LIKE THAT.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the “bonus track” DON’T ROCK MY BOAT (vocal mix), that I renamed “Vocal Channel”, to go alongwith the two bonus tracks included on Wail’N Soul’M Singles Selecta. Some of the Lee Perry tracks
were first issued on Trojan records in “Split Stereo”, meaning that the instruments are on the left side and the vocals are on the right side. They simply isolated the right track (which the vocal is louder than
the instruments) and made it stereo. Personal oppinion: this song istotally unnecessary in your collection. [TECHNICAL INFO: if you have amixer, you must accelerate the speed to 1.3 if you want to compare
it with the original track].

• Don’t Rock My Boat (71) (2006’ dub remix) (REAL NAME: Don’t Rock My Boat Dub) (AVAILABLE ON: Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & The Wailers Band: Rare Dubs 1970-1971)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

NOTE: the same song was recorded for Coxsone in 1966 under the name of Sinner Man. Peter will also re-recorded it two other times: in 1972, issued on a rare solo single: Oppressor Man and in 1977 for
his second solo album Equal Rights, and it will bear a different name again: Downpressor Man.
NOTE: The three boxsets published by JAD/Universal in 2004/2005, coordinated by Jeremy Collingwood, seems to always use the exact titles of the songs as they appered on the 7-inches labels, which
was not always the case in the Complete Wailers collection ( I refer here as AMMUNITION, SATISFY VERSION, BABE VERSION). But there is an exception: he use the title DOWPRESSOR and the title that was
written on the single was DOWPRESSER. But there might be anothe single with the title written “DOWNPRESSOR” that I haven’t seen. (GK128)
NOTE: the sound is better on the CD: Arise Black Man. • NOTE: the following two singles were advertised at the same time in Jamaica: DOWNPRESSER and DREAMLAND, in February 1971. (GK1210)

OVERDUBB DESCRIPTION (RS): original recording with additional percussion and sound effect. • (WK): original recording with the addition of a bird-like sound effect on a new track.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson writes that the overdubs conatained on Marley Tosh Livingston And Associates are from 1988. This is a mistake, as the album came out in 1981. Three sources
confirm that mistake: Jeremy Collingwood writes circa 1981, Ian McCann writes 1982 and the excellent website RootsArchives.com says 1981. WK also remember purchasing his copy in the early eighties.

• Dutch Pot (67) (N. Livingston)
••• NEVER RECORDED •••
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (AC): both songs RESCUE ME and DUTCH POT were recorded for The Never Ending Wailers album in 1985/86, but never recorded by The Wailers previously. They were songs Bunny had written in the
Wail’n Soul’m period and the Wailers rehearsed but never actually recorded.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
• Dutch Pot (86) (AVAILABLE ON: The Never Ending Wailers)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this song was recorded in 1986 specifically for the album Together Again (aka:The Never Ending Wailers). To my knowledge, it doesn’t contain segments from previous Wailers songs.

NOTE: there is SCREW FACE (VERSION) and there is FACE MAN. They are both versions of the song SCREW FACE. The first one is from the first take, the second one is from ALTERNATE 2, the slowest take.
NOTE: logically there would be two different singles, one with SCREW FACE / SCREW FACE (VERSION) and the other one with SCREW FACE (ALTERNATE 2) / FACE MAN. That would make plenty sense as all
the “VERSIONS” related to the Tuff Gong productions of 1971/1972 have been issued on singles.

NOTE: this song was never recorded in a studio. • NOTE (WK): there is also a possibility that the song was co-penned by Margaret Nash, so the credits would be instead: (J.Norman/J. Venneri/M. Nash)
NOTE: coming from a session that has been circulating under the named of The 1967 Livingroom Rehearsal. According to the credits, the producer and the Freedom Time sleeve, it has to be in 1968, not before.

NOTE: a song named FALLING IN AND OUT OF LOVE was also recored and issued in 1970 by Johnny Nash. It is probably the same song. I found three singles for that song during my research:

• Fancy Curls (59) (also known as: My Fantasy) (according to the biography Catch A Fire, this is the very first song that Bob wrote. He never recorded it.)
(some of the lyrics: Hey Little Girl/With those fancy curls/You know you better treat me right!) (included on: Hall Of Fame: Bunny Wailer’s Tribute to Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary)
WK: Bunny Wailer tells at the sleeve notes of Hall Of Fame hearing Bob singing this tune as a child when first he heard him singing. Bob Marley moved to 19 Second Street where he met Bunny Wailer in late
1959. Bunny Wailer remembers that Bob Marley won a pound when he sang this track at his first public performance. Stephen Davis in his book Bob Marley “Conquering Lion Of Reggae” writes, that this
performance took place at Queen’s Theatre in 1959. Consequently the year of writing this first song is 1959 or earlier.
• Fat Dog (71) (ERROR)
••• DOES NOT EXIST ••• ••• SEE NOTES BELOW •••
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: according to the book The Definitive Discography, there is no remix named FAT DOG, it’s only a false name for HOT DOG
NOTE: on the Trojan CDs, the song is credited as: Joe Gibbs & The Love Generation.
NOTE (WK): I think FAT DOG is in fact HOT DOG, because both feature Bunny Flip, HOT DOG is originally released at the b-side of MAINGY DOG, and I find no 7-inch with FAT DOG. Both song startes
exactly with the words “hot dog, fat dog, maga dog” by Bunny Flip.

• Feel Alright (69) (alternate mix 1) (AVAILABLE ON: Man To Man 4-CD boxset)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this mix surface for the first time on CD in November 2005, on the 4-CD boxset Man To Man. Very similar to the regular mix, but they removed the bells ringing in the background. It was taken from a
7-inch single. This specific single seems to be a new dicovery for collectors in 2005, as Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson didn’t ncluded it in the regular chapter of their book The Definitive Discography,
but only in the last minute addition, at the end of the book.
NOTE (WK): Jeremy Collingwood shares the info, that the mix without the strange percussion absent is from matrix DYNA NL 824-1, found on a blank 7´´ reissue with b-side HURTING INSIDE. The reissue has
a mix not findable as an original. Somewhere else i read, that many tracks from the Wail’N Soul’M and Tuff Gong were rereleased in 1973-75. This is where I came to knwo about this different mix. I think I
read the “1973” date on Gael’s want list.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Werner initially wrote: “The song was recorded in 1970 but only released in 1975. It’s hard to know the real title as the 7-inch singles were always released with blank labels”. But the recording date for that
song differes from Roger Steffens and Jeremy Collingwood. Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson are writing that this song would be recorded approximately in Summer 1970 (The Definitive Discography). In
January 2008, Jeremy Collingwood wrote me that according to him, the song would be from 1975: “It clearly has a drum machine on it & therefore it’s 1975 – to my ears anyway! My understanding was that fits
with some other FAMS produced drum machine tunes from 1975 (see Max Edwards) & is linked to the rhythm beneath Shineheads BILLIE JEAN (which is a Fams dub plate) & the legendary Chim Cherry, same
period as NATURAL MYSTIC / MR MUSIK”. When Jean-Louis asked back: “Would it be possible that only the drum machine would be added in 1975?” Jeremy aswered: “I’m sure it’s one of Fams drum machine
tracks from 1975. That’s what I was told when I bought the repress. It also sounds so like the other tracks I’ve mentioned (see upper). Also Fams solo recordings started in 1971 and most of his stuff wasn’t until
after he got some money from The Wailers Island deal”.
NOTE: The following information needs to be confirmed, but there seems to be nine Peter Tosh songs that were produced by Clive Chin: LITTLE GREEN APPLES (69), YOU CAN’T FOOL ME AGAIN (69), STICK UP
(69), WARFARE (69), MAN’S GREATEST ADVENTURE (69), PEPPER POT (69), THEM A WICKED (70), FIELD MARSHALL (70) and A LITTLE LOVE (71). They have to be recorded at different sessions. The single A LITTLE
LOVE was in the Jamaican charts in Sept.1971 (refering to a newspaper clip found in the Grooving Kingston 12 boxset), so was probably recorded in 1971. Unfortunately, very few information exist on these songs.
NOTE (WK): I read, that one of the nick-names of Aston Familyman Barrett in the early seventies was "Field Marshall". I think Peter called this instrumental in respect to Familyman "Field Marshall" This would
be a good argument that the right spelling is "Field Marshall" and the spelling "Field Martial" seems wrong.
NOTE: These facts are coming from Distant Drums Issue 4 (February 1995): FACT 1: The matrix of 1995 is mentioned as AB 3123A / 3122B, the orginal matrix was used for this second pressing. FACT 2: The
use of the ‘Jah Guidance’ label in 1995 “due to a lack of printed ‘Impact!’ and ‘One Way’ labels”. FACT 3: "it is interesting to note the use of an early drum machine which also appears on The Wailers tracks
SO JAH SEH and NO WOMAN NO CRY, featured on the album Natty Dread. FACT 4: A year later, Peter Tosh worked with The Wailers for the Legalize It album (I would like to correct this one: several of the
tracks featured on Legalize It were recorded in 1975). FACT 5: Matrix stamper indicated Aston Barrett production (means Aston paid for the stamper and released it via randy´s label (company) using some
stamper found. FACT 6: Responsible for the repressing: Bob Brooke from Reggae Revive.
NOTE (WK): On the white sleeve used for my copy of the Jah Guidance 7-inch, the British seller wrote the following note: ‘1975 Randy´s. FIRST: 6 test press only. SECOND: 100 were made for the Jah
Guidance pressing’. Funny is, i am sure i bought my copy at Reggae Revive in London UK. I am convinced I got it from Bob Brooke. According to my information, it would be limited to 100, while Distant
Drums writes 200 copies...

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (John Bundrick): Bob Marley arrived in May 1971 in Stockholm, helping to compose the music for the film North Scene (Love Is Not A Game) that was to star Christina Scollin and Johnny nash. The
experience was daunting for him, a child of the tropics whose love for chilly weather was less than zero. He shared a storeyed house and basement on Sigurdsvagen Street, Aljik Village, a suburb
ofStockholm. The place was a constant bustle of musicians, businessmen, housekeepers, groupies and assorted hangers on. Many women were present. Suffice to say, it was not the most conductive
atmosphere in which to create, but Marley did end up with a couple of instrumentals on the aborted soundtrack album that features Johnny Nash’s voice and the strings of arranger Fred Jordan. The film
closed within days, and was never heard from again. (Keep On Skanking 10)
NOTE (WK): the song FIFTEEN MINUTES would be part of the Sweden movie North Scene (Love Is Not A Game) that Bob worked on the soundtrack, in 1971. It is said that Bob plays the guitar. I have it from
JLC and he has it from the web. Neither Roger Steffens, Jeremy Collingwood or anyone else do mention this song.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

NOTE (WK): considering the name THE LETTER VERSION, this is not the usual “version” you would be expecting. In other words, this is not an instrumental.This variation is the same as mentioned before with
Peter Tosh lead scrubbed, so that it sounds as if Rita Marley sings lead, although he shares harmonies with Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer.

NOTE (WK): I found that Tappa Zukie started recording in 1971. There is Trojan “best of Tappa Zukie” compilation starting 1974. The DJ versions of THANK YOU LORD, MELLOW MOOD and HYPOCRITES are
probably among the first songs recorded by Tappa Zukie. I would say (only guessing): recorded circa 1971/73.

NOTE (GD): This song was not recorded during the REGGAE ON BROADWAY session in 1972. It was recorded in 1969 or 1970. The following songs were all recorded during the same studio session:
GONNA GET YOU, STAY WITH ME, MILK SHAKE AND POTATO CHIPS, LONESOME FEELING... He owns the tape to prove it.
NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: SOUL REBEL, GONNA GET YOU, LONELY GIRL, LONESOME FEELING, STAY WITH ME, MILK SHAKE AND POTATO CHIPS. Could these song all be
from the same session? That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972 at the end: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE, OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are
the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases.

NOTE: from the sound sample made available by the seller on eBay, I think it’s a different take than the one recorded by The Wailers. But it is quite possible it was recorded at the same session,
as it sounds quite similar. That’s why I wrote 1965, but I could be wrong.
NOTE: Werner read somewhere that there was a 1973 version of the song JAILHOUSE, this might well be this one. It sounds like a 1966 recording, but might as well only surface in the seventies.

after October 1971.

NOTE: all the songs recorded in 1967 were released on singles. There is no know singles with Hammer on it, so that raise a doubt for the recording of this song in 1967.
NOTE: It will be re-recorded in 1968 for JAD, (than possibly in 1971 on the Tuff Gong label). Peter also recorded it in 1976, but that version was only released four years later, on a rare Jamaican single.

SESSION (RS+LJP): recorded circa October 1971*, at the same session: I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that this song was recorded in October 1971.I voluntary placed these 5 songs in 1969 on my list, as when I listen to MUSIC LESSON or I’M STILL WAITING
from that session, Bob Marley voice doesn’t look as much mature as it is on the other 1971 recording. To me, it sounds more like these songs were recorded in 1969 or 1970 the latest. If they are right, it
would be a Wailers production.
NOTE: in the book The Definitive Discography, Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson confirm the existance of a 1971 recording of the song HAMMER. It’s this take that was used by Bunny Wailer for the remix appearing on
the album The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: about the studio, following the theory that the song would be recorded in 1971 and that The Wailers were using Randy Studio 17 or Harry J Studio at that time, it would make more sense that these songs would
have been recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as these were recorded on a four track (TDD60). Harry J Studio have an eight track.

to me in 2007 or early 2008. It might have been circulating among fans before that.
NOTE: the liner notes of the sleeve Man To Man only state: “an alternative mix that features Sly & Robbie providing a new rhythm to the original vocal and was recorded in the early 1980’s”. I search the
internet and couldn’t find any additional information on that remix. I tentatively place this remix from 1982, but that is only a guess.
NOTE: the take used for that remix is not the one from 1968. It is the take from 1969 (see upper))
NOTE: the source used for the boxset Man To Man comes from a vinyl, So probably a 7-inch single or a dub plate was issued.

NOTE: Anya McCoy: “There have been lots of versions of Satta over the years. One of the first HERE COMES THE JUDGE by Peter Tosh, (with the instrumental flipside titled AH SO) recorded for Joe Gibbs.
How did it get over to Joe Gibbs?” Donald Manning: “That is not the original, they played that over. We had no control over that. I went to Joe Gibbs because I hear it on the radio. And I go to the studio
and ask him and a woman named Chin who used to work for Dynamics, and Joe Gibbs tell her to look in the box mark AH SO. So she play both sides for me, and I tell her I never wanted to buy, I just
wanted to hear the version. And I went home and tell my little brother Linford who we call Skarly, after y'know Boris Karloff cause him have scar like Boris Karloff: "Joe Gibbs make a version of our song."
So then we make a new version called AH NO SO. (Also released under the title MABRAK.)” Interview made by Anya McCoy in September 1996

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Songs Of Freedom liner notes states that it was recorded 1969, than mixed in 1972 at Harry J’s for possible inclusion at the Catch A Fire album. Jeremy Collingwood follow this theory by including it on the
boxset Man To Man and writes: recorded in 1969 and never released. To my ears, this song is far from sounding like it was recorded in 1969. The Definitive Discography, published by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie
Pierson confirms my doubt by placing this song only in the 1972 sessions for Catch A Fire. It is note list in this document, as it I consider it being part of the ISLAND area.
NOTE: it’s interesting to notice that collectors and wrtiers such as Roger Steffens, Ian McCann and Richie Hardins all believe there was an earlier recording for this song, that took place around 1969 or 1970.
NOTE: the version included on the 4-CD boxset Man To Man was recorded in 1972. It is the same take, but 35 seconds shorter than the version included on the Catch A Fire DELUXE Edition., but the sound is not as sharp
as the one included on the DELUXE edition. Plus the mixing of the instrument is slightly different: the guitar skanking is far more present in this one such as the piano.

NOTE: this is one of the very first song to appear on the newly established Tuff Gong label, in summer 1970.
NOTE: two songs emerged from the first recording session with the Barrett brothers: BLACK PROGRESS and HOLD ON TO THIS FEELING.
NOTE (MS): going by the artwork on the label, the single HOLD ON TO THIS FEELING/VERSION is probably the first Tuff Gong single and SUN IS SHINING/RUN FOR COVER is probably the second. The artist
that created the logo, Guy Coombs tell that the first 250 copies of the record pressed (HOLD ON TO THIS FEELING) were sold so quickly that Guy had to wait a second pressing before he could obtain a
copy which he now keeps as a souvenir. (GK126)
NOTE: initially in my notes I tought there was two different versions: one take is sang by Bob alone and another take is sang by Bob and Rita. This is how I interpreted the liner notes in The Complete Wailers
Volume 3: Best Of The Wailers. But after reding the book The Definitive Discography, this information prove to be wrong.

great example ofhow songs that many “Marley-ologists” consider lightweight, were actually popular at grass roots level. (MTM15)

remix of the song MAGA DOG named FAT DOG.
NOTE (WK): I think FAT DOG is in fact HOT DOG, because both feature Bunny Flip, HOT DOG is originally released at the b-side of MAINGY DOG, and I find no 7-inch with FAT DOG. Both song starts
exactly with the words “hot dog, fat dog, maga dog” by Bunny Flip.

NOTE: The first Wailers recording session took place in late June or early July 1964. Older documents such as books or CD sleeves, sometimes refers to a late 1963 recording session, but this is not longer accurate. In 2005,
the recording session was clearly documented by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson in the book The Definitive Discography. (RS old notes: 63)
NOTE (RS+LJP): the first session includes the following songs: SIMMER DOWN, I DON’T NEED YOUR LOVE, I’M GOING HOME, DO YOU REMEMBER and STRAIGHT AND NARROW WAY.
NOTE (WK): featured on the 1964 compilation This Is Jamaica Ska. According to the liner notes, this compilation was released around March 1964. The sleeve says: “Take the dynamic new group, "The
(Simmer Down) Wailers". This inimitable group has been on the scene on record for less than three months....”

the other songs from 1968 were recorded while he was in jail. That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972, before these ten songs: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE,

NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.
NOTE: the version included on the demo tape has a tape problem, which was corrected once released in the JAD/UNIVERSAL serie.

SESSION (RS+LJP): recorded circa October 1971*, at the same session: I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that this song was recorded in October 1971.I voluntary placed these 5 songs in 1969 on my list, as when I listen to MUSIC LESSON or I’M STILL WAITING
from that session, Bob Marley voice doesn’t look as much mature as it is on the other 1971 recording. To me, it sounds more like these songs were recorded in 1969 or 1970 the latest. If they are right, it
would be a Wailers production.
NOTE: in the book The Definitive Discography, Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson state that It’s this take that was used by Bunny Wailer for the remix appearing on the album The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: about the studio, following the theory that the song would be recorded in 1971 and that The Wailers were using Randy Studio 17 or Harry J Studio at that time, it would make more sense that these songs would
have been recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as these were recorded on a four track (TDD60). Harry J Studio have an eight track.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the song s (I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON) were extensively overdubbed and remixed in 1989 and were intended for inclusion on an
album tentatively called Together Again. This album was not released for legal reasons, but was subsequently remixed in 1993 and finally released under the title The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: according to the book The Definitive Discography, the 1993’ remix was made from the recording made in 1971. There would also be three other unreleased mixes: HOW MANY TIMES (DEMO MIX),
HOW MANY TIMES (1985’ MIX), HOW MANY TIMES (12 TRIBES MIX).
NOTE: in my old notes, I wrote that the tapes used by Bunny Wailer for the 1985 & 1993 remixes were from the 1968 session, but according to Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson, Bunny used a later
recording of the song for the remixes.

NOTE: production is sometimes wrongly credited to Clancy Eccles. • NOTE: Jackie Jackson first session (4 songs): HYPOCRITES NICE TIME, THANK YOU LORD and ?
NOTE (WK): there are a few songs (NICE TIME, BEND DOWN LOW and HYPOCRITES) that are sometimes connected to Clancy Eccles, but in fact he isnt involved in any Wailers songs production. This wrong
info comes from a licensing deal of Clancey Eccles and Rita Marley. (info: DD)
NOTE: I believe the song included on Freedom Time, Fy-ah, Fy-ah and Wail’n Soul’m Singles Selecta is the take that appeared on the single. The version that appears on Songs Of Freedom is the remix
(made in 1992?). But I’m not 100% sure. Only someone who owns the original single could confirm. What brings a doubt is the fact that the version included on Songs Of Freedom has never been issued
on the JAD remasteres so far. I took some times to compare both songs. They are coming from the same take. The main difference occures in the last 40 seconds of the song: in the version included on
Songs Of Freedom, you can hear Bob skatting at the end. Plus the “Man-go” has been erase at 1m21.
NOTE: Bunny re-recorded that song in 1980 for his solo album: Sings The Wailers. A dub version this 1980 recording will be included on the album Dubd’sco Vol.2 (1980)

Hypocrites (67) (1992‘ remix)
(AVAILABLE ON: Songs Of Freedom CD-01)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: I believe the song included on Freedom Time, Fy-ah, Fy-ah and Wail’n Soul’m Singles Selecta is the take that appeared on the single. The version that appears on Songs Of Freedom is the remix
(made in 1992?). But I’m not 100% sure. Only someone who owns the original single could confirm. What brings a doubt is the fact that the version included on Songs Of Freedom has never been issued

Songs Of Freedom, you can hear Bob skatting at the end. Plus the “Man, go” has been erase at 1m21.
NOTE: according to the book The Definitive Discography, the song included on Songs Of Freedom is the same take as the one found on the 7-inch singles. The authors write that the song HYPOCRITES
appearing on Freedom Time is an alternate take, but it’s not true, it is a remix of the same track.

• Hypocrites (67) (2005’ vocal channel mix) (AVAILABLE ON: Wail’N Soul’M Singles Selecta)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the two songs HYPOCRITES (VOCAL CHANNEL) and THANK YOU LORD (VOCAL CHANNEL), released as a bonus tracks for the CD Wail’N Soul’M Singles Selecta, are totally unnessary in anyone’s
collection. The original songs were recorded on a two-track recorder. They simply isolated the right track (which the vocal is louder than the instruments) , removed the left track , and made the final result
in stereo. The four “A CAPELLA” tracks issued in 1997 in the Complete Wailers serie were interesting as the voice was completey isolated (as recorded on a four-track), but the result of these two Vocal
Channels is unpleasant.

NOTE: The first Wailers recording session took place in late June or early July 1964. Older documents such as books or CD sleeves, sometimes refers to a late 1963 recording session, but this is not longer accurate. In 2005,
the recording session was clearly documented by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson in the book The Definitive Discography. (RS old notes: 63)
NOTE (RS+LJP): the first session includes the following songs: SIMMER DOWN, I DON’T NEED YOUR LOVE, I’M GOING HOME, DO YOU REMEMBER and STRAIGHT AND NARROW WAY.
NOTE (WK): If the guitar player is Peter Tosh, this is his first playing guitar at a Wailers record, but this is not sure.

QUESTION: is SOULTOWN really the Johnny Lover version, or the alternate take 2 of DON’T ROCK MY BOAT? If it’s the second option (which make sense to me), that should be the same thing for the Jamaican single.

MUSICIANS: –
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (WK): This song is mentioned in Timothy White’s book Catch A Fire, in his Marley Discography. I asked Roger Steffens and he replied that this title was listed in a master catalogue printout made by
Danny Sims in the mid-eighties, which seems to indicate that it was once recorded. But Roger could not find a prove until now. He found out that nobody owns the tapes, nobody ever heard such a track
and no one could ever confirm it was recorded.

NOTE: the info included in the liner notes of Climb The Ladder state the band to be THE SOUL BROTHERS, but according to the recording date, the band should be THE SKATALITES (they played until
August 1965). which information is true? Plus by stating that the drummer is Lloyd Knibbs, it confirms the band being The Skatalites.
NOTE: Roger Steffens once wrote that this song was recorded in 1964, in a discography made in 1995 (available on the Enhanced portion of the CD Soul Almighty). But probably additional informations
were found, as in the liner notes of Climb The Ladder (2000), Leroy Jodie Pierson comes up with specific details as ”recorded in January 1965... mastered and released in late February”.

better on Songs Of Freedom. The version featured on Another Dance: Rarities From Studio One was recorded from the 7-inch single and last 10 more seconds. The same take wasincluded on the double LP

SESSION (RS+LJP): recorded circa October 1971*, at the same session: I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that this song was recorded in October 1971.I voluntary placed these 5 songs in 1969 on my list, as when I listen to MUSIC LESSON or I’M STILL WAITING
from that session, Bob Marley voice doesn’t look as much mature as it is on the other 1971 recording. To me, it sounds more like these songs were recorded in 1969 or 1970 the latest. If they are right, it
would be a Wailers production.
NOTE: this version of the song was released for the first time in 2004.
NOTE: This song was a hit single recorded for Coxsone in 1965. Bunny Wailer also recorded it in 1985 for the project The Never Ending Wailers, and renamed it I’M STILL WAILING.
NOTE: in the book The Definitive Discography, Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson state that It’s this take that was used by Bunny Wailer for the remix appearing on the album The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: about the studio, following the theory that the song would be recorded in 1971 and that The Wailers were using Randy Studio 17 or Harry J Studio at that time, it would make more sense that these songs would
have been recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as these were recorded on a four track (TDD60). Harry J Studio have an eight track.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: different song than: I Need You, a song recorded by The Wailers in 1964.
IMPORTANT: this song might be the B-side for DONNA, but I’m really not sure. It seems that Don’t Ever Leave Me is the B-side, but the handwriting on the picture of the blank label says: DONNA / I NEED YOU SO.
NOTE (WK): the single I NEED YOU/BABY I DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU CRY (Coxsone, 1967) would have the song I NEED YOU SO on the A-side. Info unconfirmed. (waiting to know where WK find that info)
NOTE (MS):let me try this hypothesis: I NEED YOU was never released as a single. I NEED YOU SO was released as a single with Ken Boothe's song on the B-side, but the A-side was always mis-identified which now
leads to confusion today as we now know both songs. The first one I NEED YOU was recorded in 1964 and left in the vaults up until the released of ONE LOVE in 1991. The second one, recorded in 1966 would
make even more sence to be the one included on the single, as the UK single was released in 1967. The only thing that doesn't work with that theory, is that Gael's 7-inch singles pictures are identified as I NEED YOU
and not I NEED YOU SO. Only someone that owns the single can clarify this one.

NOTE (WK): This song is mentioned in Timothy White’s book Catch A Fire, in his Marley Discography. I asked Roger Steffens and he replied that this title was listed in a master catalogue printout made by
Danny Sims in the mid-eighties, which seems to indicate that it was once recorded. But Roger could not find a prove until now. He found out that nobody owns the tapes, nobody ever heard such a track
and no one could ever confirm it was recorded.

NOTE: a remix version was availble in 1985, but this version of the song (without remix) was released for the first time in 2002.
NOTE: This song was a recorded for Coxsone in 1964. It will be re-recorded again in 1971, but that take is still unreleased. It was also included in the medley ALL IN ONE.
NOTE: there was a least one JAD session with Bunny Wailer in 1968, after he got out of jail in September, as he sang lead on TREAT YOU RIGHT and sings backing vocals on THE WORLD IS CHANGING.
So what were the other songs recorded at that session? Possibly: I’M STILL WAITING, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC GONNA TEACH as they all appeared on his Never Ending Wailer album. Logically, he would
have picked songs he participated. But MUSIC GONNA TEACH, according to the picture of the demo tape, was probably recorded in the first session, while he was in jail.
NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: I ASKED MYSELF*, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, THE WORLD IS CHANGING*, THERE SHE GOES, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES, MELLOW MOOD,
CHANCES ARE, HAMMER*, THE WORLD IS CHANGING. Could these song all be from the same session? Probably not as Bunny is doing backing vocals on the song THE WORLD IS CHANGING and some of
the other songs from 1968 were recorded while he was in jail. That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972, before these ten songs: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE,
OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases, except the one with an asterisk.

SESSION (RS+LJP): recorded circa October 1971*, at the same session: I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that this song was recorded in October 1971.I voluntary placed these 5 songs in 1969 on my list, as when I listen to MUSIC LESSON or I’M STILL WAITING
from that session, Bob Marley voice doesn’t look as much mature as it is on the other 1971 recording. To me, it sounds more like these songs were recorded in 1969 or 1970 the latest. If they are right, it
would be a Wailers production.
NOTE: in the book The Definitive Discography, Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson state that It’s this take that was used by Bunny Wailer for the remix appearing on the album The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: about the studio, following the theory that the song would be recorded in 1971 and that The Wailers were using Randy Studio 17 or Harry J Studio at that time, it would make more sense that these songs would
have been recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as these were recorded on a four track (TDD60). Harry J Studio have an eight track.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the song s (I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON) were extensively overdubbed and remixed in 1989 and were intended for inclusion on an
album tentatively called Together Again. This album was not released for legal reasons, but was subsequently remixed in 1993 and finally released under the title The Never Ending Wailers.
NOTE: according to the book The Definitive Discography, the 1993’ remix was made from the recording made in 1971. There would also be three other unreleased mixes: I’T HURTS TO BE ALONE (DEMO
MIX), I’T HURTS TO BE ALONE (1985’ MIX), IT HURTS TO BE ALONE (12 TRIBES MIX).
NOTE: in my old notes, I wrote that the tapes used by Bunny Wailer for the 1985 & 1993 remixes were from the 1968 session, but according to Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson, Bunny used a later
recording of the song for the remixes.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

NOTE: this song use the same rhythm as the song CORNER STONE but the lyrics, except for the chorus, are completely different.

NOTE: Bunny re-recorded it for the album: Sings The Wailers (1980) under the new title: RULE THIS LAND. A dub version this 1980 recording will be included on the album Dubd’sco Vol.2 (1980)

NOTE: the real name of this version is probably JELLY, as Jeremy Collingwood wrote it down in the sleeve of the Grooving Kingston 12 boxset. This version was named GUAVA in the Complete Wailers serie, but

(instead of SATISFY VERSION). Only a picture of the label will clarify this.

NOTE: first recording session: JUDGE NOT, ONE CUP OF COFFEE, DO YOU STILL LOVE ME? and TERROR.
NOTE: Mento influences: JUDGE NOT featured a penny whistle. This instrument was used in mento, and is not associated with ska or reggae. Its inclusion gives the track a bit of a rural mento feel. (www.mentomusic.com)

NOTE: Harry Belafonte seems to have taken ZOMBIE JAMBOREE from the calypso repertoire. WK’s note talk about a song named CALYPSO JAMBOREE, but no info can be found on the net.
NOTE: Mento influences: In 1965, The Wailers recorded two ska songs with Peter Tosh on lead vocals that were from the mento repertoire (though in both cases, they were originally the calypso songs). In JUMBIE
JAMBOREE, Peter Tosh changed the lyrics to describe the unruly fans at a Wailers' performance as a party of zombies. SHAME AND SCANDAL was a straight cover of this often recorded song. (www.mentomusic.com)

the first song is Beverley Kelso and Cherry Green. The line up for the second song is Rita Marley and Marlene Gifford.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Jeremy Collingwood named this song TURN ME LOOSE (BONGO VERSION) on the boxset Man To Man. But I personally prefer to name it differently, because the song TURN ME LOOSE was
recorded in 1973, and this bongo version of KAYA was done with the “Scat Mix” VERSION of the song, made in 1971. So I find it more accurate to name it KAYA (VERSION 2) (SCAT MIX; BONGO
VERSION).
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
––––– there should be at least one 7-inch single existing with this “BONGO VERSION” as the recording included on the CD is coming from a vinyl –––––

(2006’ dub remix) (REAL NAME: Keep On Moving Dub) (AVAILABLE ON: Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & The Wailers Band: Rare Dubs 1970-1971)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the rhythm is coming from Leo Graham’s Black Candle and Bad Lamp. • NOTE: intro by Lee Perry.
NOTE (AC): this recording, with it's primitive dub effects, hints toward what Perry would be recording at the Black Ark studio in the mid seventies.
NOTE (DK): Perhaps the most noteworthy version of the BLACK CANDLE rhythm was voiced by Bob Marley on KEEP ON SKANKING, the lyrics of which (Chris) Lane himself had a hand in writing: “I stuck a
couple of lines in, just messing about at the studio”. Lane recalled that Marley turned up at Scratch’s place with Bunny Wailer; he sank a few Red Stripes and voiced the song after feeling a vibe brought on by
Scratch rolling his rhythms. The next day, Bob returned to voice TURN ME LOOSE, a new song cut on the KAYA rhythm that changed it’s theme to that of a cinematic love fantasy come to life. Lane note that
Marley and Perry were clearly on good terms, and that they seemed to have a kind of special bond. “They seemes loke good mates. They definitely had something, you could see there was a little spark
between them, and I didn’t see that between Scratch and Bunny. Bunny Wailer was sitting in the control room in the corner, smoking this little pipe, looking miserable”. NOTE: according to the context of the
previous pages in David Katz book, I would say that the recording took place in the last week of December 1973, or maybe early January 1974 at the newly establish Black Ark studio.
NOTE (WK): this song is recorded 1974 at Black Ark (info: DD No.12). JL confirms, it is a Black Ark recording. The Trojan sleeve has a wrong info about a recording date in 1973 and at Dynamics. This variation is
based on the rhythm first used in 1973 for three singles by Leo Graham at Upsetter BLACK CANDLE and it’s Version called BAD LAMP. The song DOKTOR DEMAND, its Version called BLACK BAT and BIG TONGUE
BUSTER, its Version called BUS-A-DUB, are all available on Lee Perry & Friends: Public Jestering (UK Attack, 1990).
NOTE (WK): Ian McCann tells, thate there is an unreleased second cut of this song with the vocals and bass and drums, a much sparer mix.
NOTE (WK): this song was taken from an acetate that includes a unreleased dub cut with Chris Lane on bongos.

credits on the label is U. ROY (and not HUGH ROY, the primary way that the artist sign his material); I would say that’s an original single as there’s Peter Tosh signature on the label’s picture.
I don’t know when U Roy started to spell his name that way, but I saw a printed document (CW vol.10) dated from August 1972 and it’s written “U Roy”.

• Leave My Business (71) (adapted by P. Tosh) (LEAD: Peter Tosh) (HARMONIES: ?) (BAND: 3rd & 4th Generation) (PRODUCER: Joe Gibbs) (STUDIO: Randy’s Studio)
(RECORDING: 1971) (COVER: this song was based Edric Connor & The Caribbeans 1952’ LP: Songs From Jamaica as well as the mento medley by Boysie Grant and Renold’s: Calypso Clippers) (OTHER NAME: Nobody’s Business)

MUSICIANS: Carlton Davis (drums), George Fullwood (bass), Peter Tosh (guitars),Tony Chin (guitars), Bernard Touter Harvey (organ).*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Mento influences: In 1971, Peter Tosh, with Bunny Wailer's help, recorded LEAVE MY BUSINESS The liner notes of Tosh's "Honorary Citizen" box set mistakenly attribute this song to Bessie Smith (sang in the
1920’s and 1930’s, later covered by Jimmy Witherspoon’s in 1949). They are probably thinking of her hit, ’TAINT NOBODY’S BIZNESS IF I DO, a different song altogether. Tosh's LEAVE MY BUSINESS is of Jamaican
folk/mento origin, as it is heard on Edric Connor & the Caribbeans' 1952 LP, "Songs from Jamaica" as well as in the mento medley by Boysie Grant and Reynold's CALYPSO CLIPPERS. (www.mentomusic.com)
NOTE (MS): I would like to point out that Leonard Dillon (The Ethiopians) recorded a song with the same name (LEAVE MY BUSINESS), producec by Coxsone. Was Peter inspired by that specific cover of that
song instead of the original? Take note that The Ethiopians’ song is sometimes name: LEAVE MY BUSINESS ALONE.
NOTE: this is a Peter Tosh solo song, it was recorded without The Wailers. *BUT Gaël said different when he put the single for auction, he said: Peter Tosh & The Wailers. Did he made a mistake?

NOTE: This version of the song was issued on CD for the first time in February 2006, on the RE-EDITION of the double CD One Love At Studio One. Before that it was only available on the 7-inch single or
the album Marley Tosh Livingston & Associates (Studio One, 1981).
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson that mention the existance of a 1991’ Overdub in their book The Definitive Discography. I do not own the 7-inch singlle to compare with the original song, but they also say
that the song featured on the LP Marley Tosh Livingston & Associates is the original without overdub. When I compare that version of the song to the the one included on One Love At Studio One, I do not hear any
differences. They say that there is additional drums and percussion on the Hearbeat releases. It’s true that the version included on The Birth Of A Legend and Trenchtown Days: Birth Of A Legend have percussion
overdubbed, see lower for 1976’ OVERDUB.
NOTE: Bunny re-recorded the song for his Solomonic album In I Father’s House (1980). This LP was issued for the International market by Shanachie Records in 1983 with a different sleeve and re-titled:
Roots Radics Rockers Reggae. Bunny will record the song a second time for his Gumption (1990) album, and this time with a new title: DON MAN. NOTE: both Wailers songs ROLLING STONE and LET HIM
GO (as well as The Soulettes’ TIME FOR EVERYTHING) were featured on the 1966 various artists LP: Presenting Jamaica All Stars Vol.1.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (WK): Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer didn’t participate on this song. • NOTE: The Spiritual Sisters are credited on two different Wailers songs:LET THE LORD BE SEEN IN YOU and JUST IN TIME. But
the line up is different, I think there is a mistake in one of them. The line up for the first song is Beverley Kelso and Cherry Green. The line up for the second song is Rita Marley and Marlene Gifford.
NOTE: although I don’t have the information for the band, I would say it’s The Skatalites, as the song LET THE LORD BE SEEN IN YOU was backed by Cherry Green, which apparently left the band in mid-1965. But
again, a song named WHITE CHRISTMAS should have been recorded in December... so in that case, the band would be The Soul Brothers.

after October 1971.

NOTE: this is a Peter Tosh solo song, it was recorded without The Wailers. • NOTE: very few information is available on this song.
NOTE: the book The Definitive Discography place the recording of this song in the summer of 1970.
NOTE: The following information needs to be confirmed, but there seems to be nine Peter Tosh songs that were produced by Clive Chin: LITTLE GREEN APPLES (69), YOU CAN’T FOOL ME AGAIN (69), STICK UP (69),
WARFARE (69), MAN’S GREATEST ADVENTURE (69), PEPPER POT (69), THEM A WICKED (70), FIELD MARSHALL (70) and A LITTLE LOVE (71). They have to be recorded at different sessions. The single A LITTLE LOVE was
in the Jamaican charts in Sept.1971 (refering to a newspaper clip found in the Grooving Kingston 12 boxset), so was probably recorded in 1971. Unfortunately, very few information exist on these songs.
NOTE: I found out it was covered by Dennis Brown in 1971, included on the album If I Fallow My Heart. • NOTE: www.wailers.co.uk states that this song was produced by COXSONE, but that seems to be a wrong info.
NOTE: Originally, I identified the producer through the matrix. V.C. must be for Vincent ”Clive” Chin. But the book The Compl;ete Discography as well as the liner notes of Can’t Blame The Youth says that the producer is Randys.
NOTE: that song won the Rock Grammy for best song of the year in 1968. That same year, several artists did record the song: Rex Allen, Ray Bryant, Bobby Goldsboro, Bobbie Gentry, Ralph McTell, O.C. Smith, Ray Price,
Frank Sinatra, Stanley Turrentine, Dionne Warwick, Young-Holt Unlimited and various other artists the following year, including Peter Tosh.

NOTE: the version included on Grooving Kingston 12 is said to be an unreleased mix. I haven’t heard any difference, except that the sound is better and that the song last 4 seconds longer.
NOTE: the following songs are listed together on a promotional sheet (from late 1971 or early 1972) for The Wailers Record Shack: SCREW FACE, LICK SAMBA, GUAVA JELLY, LIVELY UP YOURSELF, BURIAL, KINGSTON
12 SHUFFLE, BACK BITER (Pipe & The Pipers), HARBOUR SHARK (Pipe & The Pipers).... and all of the old hits: NICE TIME, BEND DOWN LOW, ROCK MY BOAT, TRENCH TOWN ROCK. (info: Grooving Kingston
12 booklet). Considering that TRENCH TOWN ROCK was in the Jamaican chart in early September 1971, it probably means that the 8 first songs enumerate upper have been recorded (or released as singles)
after October 1971.
NOTE: the song will be re-recorded by Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1974 and included on the album Natty Dread. Bunny Wailer will re-record the song in 1994 for the album Bunny Wailer’s Tribute To Bob Marley’s
50th Anniversary (1995).

NOTE: This version of the song without overdubbs was released on CD only in October 2007. Before that it was issued on the Jamaican and UK 7-inch singles, in 1964 and 1965 repectively. The following
year, it was released on the Jamaican longplay The Wailing Wailers and was made available on the various re-issues of the longplay.
NOTE: The title is written without an ‘S’ on the sleeve, aka: LONESOME FEELING. Although the sleeve from the original LP The Wailing Wailers issued in 1966 had the title written without an ‘S’, the original
Jamaican and UK singles issued in n1964 all had the title written with an ‘S’. Over the years, most of the sleeves that included that song, wrote thet title without the ‘S’. List of sleeve that have the mistake:
The Wailing Wailers (Studio One, 1966), The Birth Of A Legend (double LP, Calla, 1976), The Birth Of A Legend (single LP, Calla, 1977), One Love At Studio One (Heartbeat, 1991) (TO BE CONFIRM), Simmer
Down At Studio One (Heartbeat, 1994), The Wailing Waiers (Studio One, 1995), Soul Almighty – The Formative Years Vol.1 (JAD, 1996), Black Progress – The Formative Years Vol.2 (JAD, 1996), Birth Of A
Legend (Epic, 2001), Rebel Boxset (JAD, 2002), Lonesome Feeling (JAD longplay, 2002), Man To Man (Universal, 2005). The last two releases from Heartbeat have corrected the mistake.

NOTE: In order to stay constant with the original way of writting the name of the song, I put the ‘S’ in the title (LONESOME FEELINGS), even if most of the releases that include this 1968 version of the song
wrote the name without the ‘S’. Seeunder LONESOME FEELINGS (64) for more details.
NOTE: the credits for that song are only attributes to Bob Marley when you look at the JAD releases, but on the Heartbeat releases, the credits goes to Bob Marley & Bunny Wailer.
NOTE (GD): It was recorded in 1969 or 1970. The following songs were all recorded during the same studio session: GONNA GET YOU, STAY WITH ME, MILK SHAKE AND POTATO CHIPS,
LONESOME FEELING... He owns the tape to prove it.
NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: SOUL REBEL, GONNA GET YOU, LONELY GIRL, LONESOME FEELING, STAY WITH ME, MILK SHAKE AND POTATO CHIPS. Could these song all be
from the same session? That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972 at the end: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE, OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are

NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson writes that the overdubs conatained on Marley Tosh Livingston And Associates are from 1988. This is a mistake, as the album came out in 1981. Three sources
confirm that mistake: Jeremy Collingwood writes circa 1981, Ian McCann writes 1982 and the excellent website RootsArchives.com says 1981. WK also remember purchasing his copy in the early eighties.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: this song appeared for the first time in 1968, on Johnny Nash album: Hold Me Tight. • NOTE: can be considered as a duet: Peter Tosh & Rita Marley
NOTE: the inner sleeve of The Complete Peter Tosh & The Wailers: Stepping Razor seems to talk about the song IT’S ONLY LOVE as being a different song than LOVE. According to the sleeve, it would have
been a duet with Peter and Rita recorded at Studio One with Coxsone Dodd.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.

NOTE: Lee Perry suggests that The Wailers may have recorded the song SEND ME THAT LOVE when he was out of the studio. The story goes along the same way for the song LOVE LIGHT:
he says that’s his rhythm, his studio... but can’t recall recording it. He cannot really deny it as it was released on the UPSETTER label. (CW710+14)
NOTE (WK): LOVE LIGHT is a Wailers Production recorded at Lee Perrys studio.
NOTE: there is a confusion: this version of the song is called LOVE LIGHT (ORIGINAL) in The Complete Wailers CD-06: More Axe but is called LOVE LIGHT (ALTERNATE TAKE) on The Complete Upsetters Collection CD-04.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this take was use for the single (info coming from The Thoughest CD sleeve?) • NOTE: 7-inch single wrongly says that Bob Marley wrote the song
NOTE: The first Wailers recording session took place in late June or early July 1964. Older documents such as books or CD sleeves, sometimes refers to a late 1963 recording session, but this is not longer accurate. In 2005,
the recording session was clearly documented by Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson in the book The Definitive Discography. ••• Roger wronglhy state 1963 in the CD sleeve of The Toughest (1996).
NOTE: Peter re-recorded the song in 1971 with Joe Gibbs; it was a huge hit. He also re-recorded it for the album: Mama Africa in 1983.
NOTE: I haven’t heard any overdub on the version included on: Trenchtown Days: Birth Of A Legend.

NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson writes that the overdubs conatained on Marley Tosh Livingston And Associates are from 1988. This is a mistake, as the album came out in 1981. Three sources
confirm that mistake: Jeremy Collingwood writes circa 1981, Ian McCann writes 1982 and the excellent website RootsArchives.com says 1981. WK also remember purchasing his copy in the early eighties.

EDIT VERSION: the song featured on Trojan’s Arise Black Man as a better sound compared to the one issued by JAD/Universal on Can’t Blame The Youth. But 7 seconds are issing in the middle of the song
(between 1m41 and 1m48). Trojan own the master tapes, but JAD/Universal were unable to locate them, so the song is recorded from the 7- inch single. CONCLUSION: Trojan song miss 7 seconds in the
middle but last 4 more seconds at the end.

NOTE: this is a Peter Tosh solo song, it was recorded without The Wailers. • NOTE: this is the first Peter Tosh single produced by Joe Gibbs.
NOTE: Gibbs made some alternate versions: Skanky Dog, Mangy Dog, Boney Dog, Hot Dog, Bull Dog & Fat Dog – Peter was not happy and recorded the song: Once Bitten.
NOTE: the song was recorded by The Wailers and produced by Coxsone in 1964 and will later be re-recorded for Peter Tosh solo album: Mama Africa in 1983.
NOTE: on the album: The Mighty 2: Joe Gibbs & Errol Thompson, you can read Maga Dog (version two), but it’s the same version)

NOTE (WK): Jeremy Collingwood told me about this track was recorded at Randy´s circa August 1969. Apollo 11 was back from visiting the moon July 27th 1969. The track was recorded probably not much later.
NOTE: The following information needs to be confirmed, but there seems to be nine Peter Tosh songs that were produced by Clive Chin: LITTLE GREEN APPLES (69), YOU CAN’T FOOL ME AGAIN (69), STICK UP
(69), WARFARE (69), MAN’S GREATEST ADVENTURE (69), PEPPER POT (69), THEM A WICKED (70), FIELD MARSHALL (70) and A LITTLE LOVE (71). They have to be recorded at different sessions. The single A LITTLE
LOVE was in the Jamaican charts in Sept.1971 (refering to a newspaper clip found in the Grooving Kingston 12 boxset), so was probably recorded in 1971. Unfortunately, very few information exist on these songs.

NOTE: this is the DJ version of the song MELLOW MOOD, which was record in 1966 by The Wailers. I have no info on the year the DJ VERSION was produced. Any information is welcome. Probably a
single was issue for that song. Released for the first time on CD: November 2004.
NOTE (WK): I found that Tappa Zukie started recording in 1971. There is Trojan “best of Tappa Zukie” compilation starting 1974. The DJ versions of THANK YOU LORD, MELLOW MOOD and HYPOCRITES are
probably among the first songs recorded by Tappa Zukie. I would say (only guessing): recorded circa 1971/73.

NOTE: according to Songs Of Freedom, this song was recorded in October 1966, but Roger Steffens says 1967. To me, it definitively sounds like 1967. • NOTE: GD confirms that this single is from 1967
NOTE: recorded at Studio One, but released on the Wail’n Soul’m label. (where did I took these notes?)
NOTE: the list of musicians enumerate upper is good only if the song was recorded in 1967. The studio would then be WEST INDIES STUDIO, the producer would be THE WAILERS and the band would be A SESSION BAND.
NOTE: this song will be re-recorded by The Wailers in 1968, produced by Arthur Jenkins and Danny Sims. Bunny will also re-recorded it in 1980 for the album: Sings The Wailers. A dub version this 1980
recording will be included on the album Dubd’sco Vol.2 (1980)

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: It’s interesting to notice that the song BEND DOWN LOW is longer on the JAD Canadian and French singles compare to the WIRL single. The song MELLOW MOOD is shorter on the JAD Canadian and
French singles compare to the WIRL single. Weird.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: I ASKED MYSELF*, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, THE WORLD IS CHANGING*, THERE SHE GOES, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES, MELLOW MOOD,
CHANCES ARE, HAMMER*, THE WORLD IS CHANGING. Could these song all be from the same session? Probably not as Bunny is doing backing vocals on the song THE WORLD IS CHANGING and some of
the other songs from 1968 were recorded while he was in jail. That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972, before these ten songs: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE,
OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases, except the one with an asterisk.
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.
NOTE: In the beginning, I usumed that there was a Jamaican, a US and a French pressing for the single, but Roger writes that the single is from Canada and not USA.

••• NOTE (WK): it was Bruno Blum who wrote in a mail that the pressing of the vinyl is made in Germany (for singles 006, 007, 008, 009). I do not know how he is doing it exactly. Pressing
vinyls in Germany, shipping them to Jamaica, maybe there the labels were added, and shipping back for distribution from France. Sounds crazy but seems to be a cheap way of
handling. Maybe it is easier to handle these singles as “Jamaican singles”.

MIX DESCRIPTION (WK): With additional horns and strings.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: The single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD was marketed with different mixes than the one issued in The Complete Wailers catalogue and The JAD/Universal Remastered. The year when that
remix was made is unknown. I received samples of those two new mixes on MP3 in October 2006. So far I, I wasn’t able to find the comple songs. Some scratches can be heard in the background
confirming that they were recorded from a vinyl. Jeremy Collingwood wasn’t aware of the existance of these mixes. Werner mentionned them to him in January 2008. He owns the three JAD original singles
(Jamaican, French and Canadian). These three singles all have the same mixes, aka ‘The New York Mix’, (except some are shorter, see upper for more details). According to him, those new founded mix
would be posthumous remixes.

NOTE (WK): Maybe with Peter Tosh on melodica. Only a ‘maybe’. The information that this song maybe part of Peter Tosh discography is only mentionned in Distant Drums.
NOTE: No information are available on that song. Not listed in The Definitive Discography.
NOTE: Werner place this song in 1972, but I would assume that if Peter Tosh plays on it, it would have been recorded in 1971, as I read somewhere that Peter Tosh & Joe Gibbs ended their collaboration
abruptly. If my memory is good is because Gibbs made several versions of the song MAGA DOG without asking Peter Tosh approbation.

NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: SOUL REBEL, GONNA GET YOU, LONELY GIRL, LONESOME FEELING, STAY WITH ME, MILK SHAKE AND POTATO CHIPS. Could these song all be
from the same session? That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972 at the end: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE, OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are
the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases.
NOTE: although Gael locate this song in 1969 or 1970, I personally think, according to the sound, that it was recorded in 1968.
NOTE: the Rebel boxset doesn’t mentionned that the song was written by Jimmy Normand and Al Pyfrom, but the Bob, Peter, Bunny & Rita album does.
NOTE: according to the Caymen Music Master Catalog, published at the end of The Definitive Discography, this song would be writtem by J. Norman alone. But in the liner notes of the Rebel boxset (2002),
the song is credited to J. Norman/A. Pyfrom. This would be a mistake.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this version was recorded on CD directly from the 7-inch single, as the master tape couldn’t be located. This song can be differenced from MORE AXE (ALTERNATE) with it’s extra guitar patern.
IMPORTANT: I said it was recorded from the 7-inch as you can ear scratches, BUT it could also be recorded from the jamaican 1978 reprerss of The Best Of Bob Marley & The Wailers (silk screen, Studio One),
only someone who owns the 7-inch could answer this question. In this case, the aditional guitar could be coming from an “overdubbed” version made in 1974.
NOTE: The version included on the boxset Man To Man has a nice fade out at the end, compare to the one included in The Complete Wailers collection.
NOTE: At one point, I considered this specific track with additional guitar to be an OVERDUB that appeared on the Jamaican 1978 reprerss of The Best Of Bob Marley & The Wailers (silk screen, Studio One),
but Roger Steffens & Leroy Jodie Pierson wrote in the book The Definitive Discography that the Jamaican single, the UK single and the US single all have the same track with extra guitar, which was also featured
on The Best Of Bob Marley & The Wailers album (silkscreen, Studio One). So the conclusion is that Lee Perry made that mix with the additional guitar track. He probably made the two mixes.

NOTE: this is the first DJ version for the song KEEP ON MOVING. The original song was recorded in 1971 and issued on the 1971 LP: Soul Revolution Part II, but a single was issued the following year, in September 1972
The single with the DJ version was issued at the same time, in September 1972. These dates have been confirmed for UK singles, but must be in August or September 1972 for the Jamaican release. There is also
another DJ version named RASTA DUB that was made DJ Dennis Alcapone.
NOTE: David Katz confirms that this DJ version was made in 1972. • NOTE: CRUMMY PEOPLE is also known as: ONE LOVE ONE HEART.
NOTE: in 1975, Big Youth recorded a song named MOVING ON, but it has nothing to do with MOVING VERSION or KEEP ON MOVING. MOVING ON is a recut of Ken Boothe’s MOVING AWAY,
originally recorded for Studio One.
NOTE: Big Youth 1972 debut single, MOVIE MAN, recorded for African Museum (Errol Dunkey and Gregory Isaacs’ label) flopped. So did its follow-ups BLACK CINDY (cut for Jimmy Radway), MOVING (a take of The
Wailers’ KEEP ON MOVING for Lee Perry), the two Phil Pratt productions TELL IT BLACK and PHIL PRATT THING – and Niney’s FIRE BUNN. But by 1973, with his main competitors U-Roy and Dennis Alcapone in the UK,
The Jamaican music scenewas his for the taking. (Mojo Special: Bob Marly & The Story Of Reggae, August 2005, interview by Lois Wilson)

SPLIT STEREO VERSION: a split stereo version is available on the double CD Soul Revolution Part II (Trojan, 1988). The term “SPLIT STEREO” means that the instruments are on the left side and the vocals are on the right side.

IMPORTANT: the book The Definitive Discography says that this song was recorded in 1971. Should I change my notes... hesitation...
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (JC): this song tells the bizarre story of a real life event in which someone was driven around in a cofin by three crows looking for Mr Brown. There are other records that are based on the same
“event” and in true JA style you get somewhat different accounts of what went on. (GK128)
NOTE: the single MR BROWN was released just after DUPPY CONQUEROR in Jamaica (and in UK). The publicity (a promotional card distributed and also featured in the newspaper) advertised it as a “sure hit”. (GK126)

SHORT VERSION: a verion of the song without the 10-seconds intro is included on the CD: Nice Time.
The book The Definitive Discography has the information that the Jamaican single has the intro, but not the UK single.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this song was previously recorded under the title of MR TALKATIVE at Studio One in 1964. It was produced by Coxsone Dodd.
NOTE: the spoken intro was made by Bunny Lee & Bob Marley. • NOTE: Bunny Wailer did not participate at this session.
NOTE: the Jaguar single released in 1970 mentioned that it was recorded by Bob Marley & The Uniques. The Uniques would be just a different name for Bunny Lee’s session band, also known as
The Upsetters, The Hippy Boys or Bunny Lee All-Stars. In UK, the single was credited to the Interns.
NOTE: the same riddim track will be use by John Holt in 1971 for the song (THERE IS) NO LOVE and by Max Romeo in 1972 for his own adaptation of the song CHATTER BOX.
NOTE (IN10): the song was written by Bob Marley. He gave it to Bunny Lee... (it probably means that the royalties are belonging to Bunny Lee).

• Mr Chatterbox (70) (2004’ overdub) (AVAILABLE ON: only on the rare 7-inch single)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
OVERDUB DESCRIPTION (WK): overdubbed with bass drum, and nice keyboard lines. The version include the talk at the start.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: I heard a slightly different version on local radio in April 2004 and I wonder if this could be the one coming from the Jaguar single. I never found it on a CD. If I remember well, there was a flute track
in background, plus a little bit of chattering, but I’m not shure. I wrote these lines an hour after hearing the song, as I wasn’t at home when I heard it. I asked Jeremy Collingwood about this and he
replied:”The Mr Chatterbox that JAD use is from original vinyl....I know that Bunny Lee mastered off a vinyl release but missed of the spoken intro and it didn't get mastered well...typical Bunny....I think that's
there's only one version”. In June 2006, Werner purchased the Jaguar single and confirmed me that it was different than the song included in the JAD/Universal discography. It is probably that song that I
heard on the radio.
NOTE: This single seems to be constantly repress: In October 2004, August 2005, November 2005, April 2006 Ernie B got it on it’s newsletter list. I wonder in which year that single (with same matrix) was
press for the first time.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
SESSION (RS+LJP): recorded circa October 1971*, at the same session: I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY TIMES, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, MUSIC LESSON.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that this song was recorded in October 1971.I voluntary placed these 5 songs in 1969 on my list, as when I listen to MUSIC LESSON or I’M STILL WAITING
from that session, Bob Marley voice doesn’t look as much mature as it is on the other 1971 recording. To me, it sounds more like these songs were recorded in 1969 or 1970 the latest. If they are right, it
would be a Wailers production.
NOTE: about the studio, following the theory that the song would be recorded in 1971 and that The Wailers were using Randy Studio 17 or Harry J Studio at that time, it would make more sense that these songs would
have been recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as these were recorded on a four track (TDD60). Harry J Studio have an eight track.
NOTE (JC): this song shows that Bob did record “conscious” tunes for Danny Sims and is an important song as it illustrates Bob’s growing interest in both African, and world history... (GK1212)
NOTE: for a long time I consider this song to be recorded in 1968, but as the book The Definitive Discography says that it was recorded at the same session as I’M STILL WAITING, HAMMER, HOW MANY
TIMES and IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, I decided to change the date for 1969.
NOTE: accoording to the book The Definitive Discography, the original take oif the song is still unreleased. Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson describe the song released on Grooving Kingston 12 as an
Alternate Mix.
NOTE: (old theory that seems to be wronmg after reading the book The Definitive Discography) a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK
TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD, BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213).

NOTE: the information that I found for the album SAY IT LOUD (I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD) state that the songs were recorded between Aug.17, 1967 and Oct. 18, 1968. But the released date of the album
is March 1969. (info: All Music Guide). This album include SAY IT LOUD (I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD), I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO CRY CRY CRY, LICKING STICK-LICKING STICK and I LOVE YOU, four songs that
inspired Bob in his writing process.

This is the lineup for the album Rastaman Vibration, so it may be the same for this song. It’s not the I-Three on harmonies. It is a man who is doing the harmonies on NATURAL MYSTIC and a woman (Rita?) on RAINBOW COUNTRY.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the songs NATURAL MYSTIC and RAINBOW COUNTRY were included on this 1962-1972 list simply because the Complete Wailers collection included them. These songs were recorded in 1975 (or 1976)
and could only be found on unofficial singles and bootlegs. This is probably the reason why Bruno Blum decided to included them in the collection in May 2002. Maybe it was simply a request made by Rita
Marley to Bruno, trying to avoid piracy of the Bob Marley catalogue. Interesting fact: the sleeve of Soul Adventurer doesn’t mention that these two songs were recorded after 1972.
NOTE: this recording was made one or two years before the one included on the Exodus album and has a completly different tempo.
NOTE (WK): the following songs were recorded during the same session: NATURAL MYSTIC, RAINBOW COUNTRY, SMILE JAMAICA.
NOTE: apparently, this version of the song made surface only after Bob pass way. • NOTE (DK): started to be released in 1983 through Enzo Hamilton. But WK purchase a 12-inch single that says 1982.
NOTE: a previous discography released in 1995 (or earlier), Roger Steffens states that NATRURAL MYSTIC was recorded in 1977. Bruno Blum, on his side, wrongly placed it in 1972, in his Complete Wailers serie.
NOTE (WK): Stephen Davis tells that RAINBOW COUNTRY was recorded at the same time as SMILE JAMAICA (in November 1976) and given to Jack Ruby sound system (maybe as a dub-plate /acetate).
NOTE (AC): I’m mostly sure that these tracks were recorded just prior the Rastaman Vibration sessions that took place in automn 1975.
NOTE: Bunny Wailer will cover the song in 1994 for the album Bunny Wailer’s Tribute To Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary (1995).

dowload when people purcahse the first version of the album online (rhapsody.com) (www.virginmega.fr) (ruckus.com) (hitmobile.com) (netantila.com) (phnetmusiikki.com) (greatsong.net)
(linternaute.com) (teemix.aufeminin.com). I haven’t download the song yet. I learn that information from someone who work on the production of the album Roots, Rock, Remixed, and according to the
information he gave me, the song would be exclusive for download on the Verizon website. ‘These are ‘digital only’ releases, at least for now’. (info received in early December 2007).
NOTE: According to the producer, this song was available for download at the Verizon website. When I tried to find the song in December 2007, it wasn’t available anymore. I found out that in September
there was a dispute between Chris Blackwell and Universal executives. He didn’t aggreed with Universal autorizing Verizon Wireless to use Marley songs for ringtones without asking for permission. Maybe
the Bob Marley catalogue was removed from the website not long after...

Glen Adams produced the VERSION in 1971. • NOTE: production is sometimes wrongly credited to Clancy Eccles.
NOTE (WK): there are a few songs (NICE TIME, BEND DOWN LOW and HYPOCRITES) that are sometimes connected to Clancy Eccles, but in fact he isnt involved in any Wailers songs production. This wrong
info comes from a licensing deal of Clancey Eccles and Rita Marley. (info: DD)

LENGHT: 2m21 • LONG VERSION: 2m36 (The version included on demo tapes circulating among fans has a better sound and last 15 seconds longer)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: It is called NICE TIME (71) VERSION probably because the version was made for a Tuff Gong single in 1971. If it’s the case, several of the singles enumerate upper have a VERSION and not the original song.
NOTE (JC): NICE TIME (71) VERSION has never been released on album or CD before. It’s the dub to a re-recorded cut of NICE TIME that The Wailers originally recorded as a rock steady piece in 1967 and
then again in 1968 for JAD. The full vocal to this recording has yet to surface (ADC3). ••• I would like to correct that statement: the vocal version is available on Songs Of Freedom. Maybe he meant that it
wasn’t released in the JAD/Universal remasters yet •••
NOTE (WK): (refering to the Capo single): this is a piano cut to SOUL REBEL. the b-side is the VERSION of the piano cut. The A-SIDE also appear on the Giant 7-inch, the other side is NICE TIME VERSION,
the recently released track on JAD.

• Nice Time (67) (1971’ DJ version) (LEAD: DJ Scotty*) (AVAILABLE ON: Man To Man 4-CD boxset)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this is the DJ version of the song NICE TIME, which was record in 1967 by The Wailers. Scotty used the VERSION made in 1971 to DJ the song.
NOTE: Jeremy Collingwood write that the DJ’s name is U-Roy Jnr, in the liner notes of the Man To Man boxset. Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson state that the DJ’s name is Scotty, in their book The
Definitive Discography. So U-Roy Jnr is probably a middle name for Scotty. Before getting these two informations, I had written down that the DJ was Dennis Alcapone, but now it’s proven wrong.

(I called it the 90’ echo remix, because All The Hits was released in 1990, but it was probably issued years before on a 7-inch single. Contact me if you know the year it was originaly released)
(this version of the song is very close to the original, just that you can hear some echo in Bob’s singing and also some echo in the bass drum)

••• NOTE: (liner notes of CW: Freedom Time): guitarist & percussionists unknown. They probably meant that the names of an additional guitarist and a percussionist (s) are unknown.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: this song was not recorded twice for JAD, as the book The Definitive Discography may suggest. The session NICE TIME, SOUL ALMIGHTY and BEND DOWN LOW (page 31) is a mistake. NICE TIME and
BEND DOWN LOW were only recorded one time (see page 33 of the book for correct information). The song SOUL ALMIGHTY was not recorded for JAD, but only for Lee Perry in 1970. It is true that JAD
made a remix of the song in 1988, which was also included on the 1996 CD: Soul Almighty – The Formative Years.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.

emerge so far, but if Bruno Blum went through this process, that probably means that the original tapes are no longer existing. This SOUL MIX is exclusive to The Comple Wailers collection.

NOTE: Jeremy Collingwood write in the sleeve notes that “NICOTEEN, RED and PASS IT ON are from dub plates and thus are mixed to be played at high volume through a large Sound System that was all treble and
bass with large mid range. The way the vocals drops in & out probably means that these tracks were more than likely mixed in 1971/2. It’s not known who did the mixing but is probably a UK sound”. (ADC3)

wK: I found the running times of that 10-inch single on internet. the first two songs have the same running time as the 7-inch I own, so it is probably the same recording as the 7-inch singles available on the market. I
have the Rhythm & Sound (band from Berlin) that contain NO PARTIAL song and It last 45 seconds more. It is similar to the original recording,. NOTE: There is also a 12-inch single available.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

NOTE: Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer didn’t participate on this song.
NOTE: these four songs were recorded during that session: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE and OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE.
NOTE: the CBS Theobalds Road Studio is located in London and the mixing was made on April 4 1972, at Nolan Recordings in New York City.
NOTE: the denomination “jamaican mix” probably means that the version included on the Jamaican single (or all the 1972 singles) is an edit version. Someone who owns both singles could confirm it. WK
confirms that the UK single, issued on CBS in 1972 has the “jamaican mix”.
NOTE: a previous discography released in 1995 (or earlier), Roger Steffens states that REGGAE ON BROADWAY was recorded in 1971, but the liner notes of The Complete Wailers CD-08:
Satisfy My Soul Jah Jah corrected this information.
NOTE (WK): the UK single was released on May 26, 1972.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
LENGHT: the version included on the CD Black Dignity is four seconds shorter than the 7-inch single.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (WK): this song would be self-produced by Peter. Bob and Peter plays guitar, Peter on Piano and Bunny plays an instrument. • NOTE (MS): recorded at one of these studios: Dynamic, Harry J’ or Randy’s.
NOTE: this song was recorded in 1966 under the name of Sinner Man, and in 1971 under the title: Downpresser. In 1977, Peter will re-record it for his second solo album Equal Rights, with the title: Downpressor Man.
NOTE (RS): a third recording of this song, titled Oppressor Man, was produced by Peter in 1970 and released on the Trans-Am label, recorded with the Upsetters at Randy´s. Info coming from the sleeve of MORE AXE.
NOTE (MS): I would say that this song was recorded arround November 1972, during the sessions that were used for the album Catch A Fire. The sound is very similar to these sessions (specially with 400
YEARS and MIDNIGHT RAVERS included on the CATCH A FIRE DELUXE). Plus the song last 4m08, which is quite unusual for a song recorded in 1970.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: very few information is available on that song. It only surface officially in June 2004, but was circulating on rare demo tapes.
NOTE: Roger Steffens and Leroy Jodie Pierson mentioned in the book The Definitive Discography (2005), that this song was probably recorded around 1971. But to my years, this song woluld be from 1970.
NOTE (IN9): I know this version for a long time but some collectors forced me to keep silent about. This version is great and was recorded during the Randy's sessions (Sugar Sugar, Black Progress).
NOTE: this song will be re-recorded by The Wailers in 1973 for the Burnin’ album. Bunny Wailer will also re-record the song for a solo single the same year.
NOTE: the credits are given to Bob Marley in the Burnin’ LP. But on Bunny Wailer’s single, the credits are given to J. Watt (in other words, N. Livingston).
NOTE (WK): a Distant Drums magazine issue from 1996 was mentionning the existance of an earlier first cut of PASS IT ON existing. It said to be dating from Upsetter period. The song was describe to be with horns
intro and different lines. WK oppinion: It really sounds like an Upsetters recording, but it may not be from Upsetters. My oppinion: I go for the an early 70’s session (aka: SUGAR SUGAR and BLACK PROGRESS)

NOTE: Jeremy Collingwood write in the sleeve notes that “NICOTEEN, RED and PASS IT ON are from dub plates and thus are mixed to be played at high volume through a large Sound System that was all treble
and bass with large mid range. The way the vocals drops in & out probably means that these tracks were more than likely mixed in 1971/2. It’s not known who did the mixing but is probably a UK sound”.

hole in the vinyl is very small, similar to ISLAND 7-inch singles. BUT: the seller says is from WAIL’N SOUL’M. The matrix could help to determine wether or not it’s a pre-release from Island.

MUSICIANS [possible lineup]: Hector Williams (drums), Lloyd Brevette (double bass), Errol Walters (bass), Ernest Ranglin (guitars), Jackie Mittoo (piano/organ), Johnny Moore (trumpet),
Roland Alphonso (tenor sax).
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: there would be 4 different versions recorded at Studio One • NOTE (WK):I found out that there are alternates like the three different cuts of Don´t Ever Leave Me that are different only because of a
different guitar solo by Roland Alphonso. Maybe this is the clue why there are five different cuts of Put It On.
NOTE (WK): the lead guitar is significantly different. On one version (SONGS OF FREEDOM), there is a guitar solo-ing through tthe whole song at the end of each line. The other version (CLIMB THE LADDER)
has this guitar not audible at many passages. It seems to be a remix, not a different guitar track.
NOTE: this song topped the jamaican charts for months in 1966 – It reached No.4 on the RJR radio chart in Kingston on February 13, 1966.
NOTE: Bunny says that the song was recorded with The Sharks,But Mr. Dodd maintains that although The Sharks did record the song with The Wailers, he was not satisfied with the result and brought The Wailers
back in to recut the tune with The Soul Brothers, and issue that as the single.
NOTE (DK): featuring backing by The Sharks, with arsh lead guitar lines provided by a young guitarist named Dwight Pinkney. • NOTE (DK): the rhythm of this track was used for the song: Rub And Squeeze, by Lee Perry.
NOTE: Bunny Wailer will re-record this song in 1986 and will be features the following year on his album Rule Dance Hall.
NOTE (WK): i re-read the sleeves again and again and the more i read it the more i do not get it what is meant. is this that one or isn´t? i cant say for sure. Maybe its because of my german logic. or my advocates mislead
logic, but i do not understand his point. the one was chosen the other rejected, but to me it sounds as if he want to say that the one with the sharks is now la released. hmmm....

NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,

NOTE: the following “demo” tape is circulating among fans: I ASKED MYSELF*, IT HURTS TO BE ALONE, THE WORLD IS CHANGING*, THERE SHE GOES, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES, MELLOW MOOD,
CHANCES ARE, HAMMER*, THE WORLD IS CHANGING. Could these song all be from the same session? Probably not as Bunny is doing backing vocals on the song THE WORLD IS CHANGING and some of
the other songs from 1968 were recorded while he was in jail. That tape also includes 4 songs from 1972, before these ten songs: REGGAE ON BROADWAY, DANCE DO THE REGGAE, I’M HURTING INSIDE,
OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE. Alll these songs are the same studio songs included in JAD/UNIVERSAL releases, except the one with an asterisk.
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

(RECORDING: Sept. 1975) (OTHER NAMES: Irie Riding, Highway riding, Mr Musik) AVAILABLE ON: The Complete Wailers CD-10: Soul Adventurer)

MUSICIANS: Carlton Barrett (drums), Aston Barrett (bass), Don Kinsey (lead guitar), Earl Chinna Smith (guitar), Tyrone Downie (keyboard), Tommy McCook (tenor sax), Glen DaCosta (alto sax), David Madden (trumpet).
This is the lineup for the album Rastaman Vibration, so it may be the same for this song. It’s not the I-Three on harmonies. It is a man who is doing the harmonies on NATURAL MYSTIC and a woman (Rita?) on RAINBOW COUNTRY.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the songs NATURAL MYSTIC and RAINBOW COUNTRY were included on this 1962-1972 list simply because the Complete Wailers collection included them. These songs were recorded in 1975 (or 1976)
and could only be found on unofficial singles and bootlegs. This is probably the reason why Jeremy Collingwood decided to included them in the collection in May 2002. Maybe it was simply a request made by
Rita Marley to Bruno, trying to avoid piracy of the Bob Marley catalogue. Interesting fact: the sleeve of Soul Adventurer doesn’t mention that these two songs were recorded after 1972.
NOTE (JC): You are correct about NATURAL MYSTIC & RAINBOW COUNTRY (aka MR MUSIK) which JAD do not claim as they are from 1975/6. Infact the versions that have been released are the unmixed studio
takes. The Tubbies dub plate issue is very different and RAINBOW CULTURE (did he meant Rainbow Country?) is called MR MUSIK
NOTE (WK): the following songs were recorded during the same session: NATURAL MYSTIC, RAINBOW COUNTRY, SMILE JAMAICA.
NOTE: this song was written on the New Jersey Turnpike, travelling north of the New York office of Tuff Gong records, with Lee Jaffee (the White Wailer) and Yvette Anderson (friend of Bob and secretary at
Tuff Gong NY. Other titles suggested for that song while it was in the writing process: Irie Riding and Highway riding.
NOTE: apparently, this version of the song made surface only after Bob pass way. • NOTE (DK): started to be released in 1983 through Enzo Hamilton. But WK purchase a 12-inch single that says 1982.
NOTE: a previous discography released in 1995 (or earlier), Roger Steffens states that NATRURAL MYSTIC was recorded in 1977. Bruno Blum, on his side, wrongly placed it in 1972, in his Complete Wailers serie.
NOTE (WK): Stephen Davis tells that RAINBOW COUNTRY was recorded at the same time as SMILE JAMAICA (in November 1976) and given to Jack Ruby sound system (maybe as a dub-plate /acetate).
NOTE (AC): I’m mostly sure that these tracks were recorded just prior the Rastaman Vibration sessions that took place in automn 1975.
NOTE (WK): while Roger Steffens claims (in the book The Definitive Discography) that the US and the UK maxi singles have different mixes, I can only say in a few facts he is wrong: the UK also have harmonies
what he denies. I hown it and I checked it , and he claims a year too late for the UK maxi. In fact, the track appeared for the first time in 1981 or 1982 on longplays edited. and he gives the UK label with a
mistake. Daddy Kool in fact. All this lead me to think Roger dont have a UK issue and so claims a difference that do not exist.
NOTE (WK): reading the book The Definitive Discography, there would be a third vocal track and a third version for RAINBOW COUNTRY.
NOTE: Bunny Wailer will cover the song in 1994 for the album Bunny Wailer’s Tribute To Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary (1995).

• Rainbow Country (75) (2006’ dub remix) (REAL NAME: Rainbow Country Dub) (AVAILABLE ON: Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & The Wailers Band: Rare Dubs 1970-1971)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT: Augustus Pablo (melodica), Keesey (melodica)*
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: This is a melodica cuts using the original riddims made by The Wailers in 1970 and 1971. I originally wrote that these dubs might have been recorded by Lee Perry somewhere after 1975. But Jeremy
Collingwood corrected me by saying that “these tracks were made by Bunny Lee in 2006 with a guy he’s found that blows like Augustus Pablo. Bunny Lee used the original Lee Perry tracks to make these
dubs”. The official release date for that CD is March 13, 2006. The tracks might have been recorded in 2005... Maybe the name of the artist that plays the melodica is Keesey, as credit in the CD sleeve is
"Augustus Pablo, Keesey: Melodica". A Wailers collector points out that the VERSIONS used to make these new DUBS have the identical sound as the one that were issued on The Universal Remasters,
issued in 2004. Therefore it is impossible that Augustus Pablo plays on these dubs as he passed away in 1999.
NOTE: Here’s a few tips that amplify the fact that the title is wrong. FIRST: The song Rainbow Country is from Automn 1975. SECOND: Augustus Pablo first album ‘This Is Augustus Pablo’ was issued in 1973.
THIRD: Werner writes“I never heared this echo distortion effect I told you on a Lee Perry album, so this may indicate a new mix by another producer and not Lee Perry” FOURTH: The sleeve says: Recorded at
Randy´s Studio One 17 and prduced by Lee Perry. Perry opened his Black Ark studio in December 1973.

(RECORDING: May 1966) (OTHER NAME: Rasta Put It On) (COVER: this song is a cover of the song Archie Buck Them Up made by Lord Creator in 1966 (or maybe 1965) (AVAILABLE ON: The Toughest)

MUSICIANS [possible lineup]: Hector Williams (drums), Lloyd Brevette (double bass), Errol Walters (bass), Ernest Ranglin (guitars), Jackie Mittoo (piano/organ), Johnny Moore (trumpet),
Roland Alphonso (tenor sax).
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: the first Wailers song to mention Rastafari, recorded after Selassie’s visit on the Island, while Bob was living in Delaware.
NOTE: the Gaylads are: B.B.Seaton, Delano Stewart, Maurice Roberts
NOTE: Mento influences: In 1966, The Wailers recorded the wonderful RASTA SHOOK THEM UP with Peter Tosh on lead vocals. This song was based on an earlier song called ARCHIE BUCK THEM UP, which
may have originally been recorded by the Lord Creator. (Though he recorded in Jamaica, Lord Creator -- not to be confused with mento singer Lord Composer -- was born in Trinidad, and was much more
of a calypso act than mento.) Around the same time that The Wailers recorded their adaptation, The Hiltonaires recorded a mento version of ARCHIE BUCK THEM UP, which was released as a single and on
an LP. (On the same LP, The Hiltonaires also recorded a version of NOBODY’S BUSINESS, which Tosh also covered. Perhaps Peter was a fan of this LP, or, more likely, this is a coincidence). Simultaneously, or
shortly thereafter these renditions were released, Ernest Ranglin blazed a scorcher jazz-calypso-mento version of this song that alone is worth the price of the CD, "A Mod A Mod Ranglin". Rural act King
Arthur and the calypso-y Dennis Sindrey also recorded this song in the 1960s, shortening the title, as Ernest Ranglin did, to ARCHIE. (www.mentomusic.com)

–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: Jeremy Collingwood write in the sleeve notes that “NICOTEEN, RED and PASS IT ON are from dub plates and thus are mixed to be played at high volume through a large Sound System that was all treble
and bass with large mid range. The way the vocals drops in & out probably means that these tracks were more than likely mixed in 1971/2. It’s not known who did the mixing but is probably a UK sound”.
NOTE: this dub plate mix is different than the RED (ALTERNATE) included on Soul Adventurer.
NOTE: the source used for the boxset Man To Man comes from a vinyl, So probably a 7-inch single was issued, maybe in a stritly limited edition, only for sound systems.

• Reggae On Broadway (72) (1990’ remix) (AVAILABLE ON: The Complete Wailers CD-08: Satisfy My Soul Jah Jah)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: remix by Ingmar King • NOTE: this remix is similar to the 1981 remix; the instruments have been slightly remixed, and the song is 2m00 shorter. It was issued for the first time in 1998. After reading
the comment in The Definitive Discography (see lower), I decieded to renamed that version the 1990’ REMIX.
NOTE (RS+LJP): All four tracks were remixed by Ingmar King at Island Studios, London in 1990 for possible inclusion on the boxset Songs Of Freedom. The book doesn’t mention the titles of theose four
tracks (six are listed in this section), but it must be REGGAE ON BROADWAY, OH LORD I GOT TO GET THERE, GONNA GET YOU and STAY WITH ME, as a different mix of these four were released on the
JAD CD The Complet Wailers Vol. 8: Satisfy My Soul Jah Jah.

Rescue Me (67) (N. Livingston)
••• RECORDING NEVER FOUND – MIGHT NEVER HAVE BEEN RECORDED •••
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE (WK): This song is mentioned in Timothy White’s book Catch A Fire, in his Marley Discography. I asked Roger Steffens and he replied that this title was listed in a master catalogue printout made by
Danny Sims in the mid-eighties, which seems to indicate that it may have been once recorded. But Roger could not find a prove until now.
NOTE (AC): both songs RESCUE ME and DUTCH POT were recorded for The Never Ending Wailers album in 1985/86, but never recorded by The Wailers previously. They were songs Bunny had written in the
Wail’n Soul’m period and the Wailers rehearsed but never actually recorded.

Peter Tosh Interview (Reggae And African Beat (vol.5, No.1) (1986)).
NOTE: although the liner notes of the ARISE BLACK MAN state the producer to be Bunny Lee, the UK single states that this song is copyright to BEVERLEY MUSIC. Could the producer be Leslie Kong? It may
only be a distribution deal for UK... Several Peter Tosh singles have the same copyright: THE RETURN OF AL CAPONE, ROMPER ROOM, SELASSIE SERENADE, SUN VALLEY.

NOTE: The sleeve of Arise Black Man state that the writer’s copywrith is unknown. I put Peter Tosh in the writing credits, as he wrote the song THEM A FI GET A BEATEN.
NOTE: This song is in fact a piano version of Them A Fi Get A Beaten. • NOTE: As Peter Tosh and Joe Gibbs collaboration seems to be a short one (confirm in the Arise Black Man sleeve),
I would suggest that this song might be from 1971, even if the Intelligent Diplomat website says that the single was released in 1972.

NOTE: It looks like both singles DREAMLAND and it’s DJ version MOODY BLUE were issued around the same time, February or March 1971; but It’s only a supposition.
NOTE: wronly credited to DJ Big Youth on the double CD: Roots Of A Legend. • NOTE: CAT’S CORNER’S SKANK is in fact another name for OUT OF THIS WORLD and it’s the DJ version of the song GROOVE ME.
NOTE: the Somkeyroom Shower website state that the blank label single was issued in 1970. To me, it would make more sence that it ‘s from early 1971. Knowing that DREAMLAND was recorded in December 1970
(refering to my notes), and that the UK single for DREAMLAND was released around March 1971, I would assume that the Jamaican single and it’s DJ version were made approximately in February 1971.

NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.

••• DOES NOT EXIST – PROBLEMATIC REGARDING THE INCLUSION OF THE SONG ON THE STUDIO ONE CD: WAILING WAILERS AT STUDIO ONE •••
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: there was no version of that song recorded at Studio One, and no version of that song prior to 1968 – see the 1982 REMIX for more details.
NOTE (GD): definitively 1968 (refer lower for the real song) • NOTE (AC): Rock Steady would not have been recorded before 1967, and certainley no later than 1968. Rocksteady came into the JA music
scene in late summer 1966 and really exploded the following year before being replaced by the Reggae beat in late summer 1968. I would say 1968 is the correct recording date.

(RECORDING: Feb. 1968) (OTHER NAME: Rock Steady) (AVAILABLE ON: The Complete Wailers CD-01: Rock To The Rock)
(COVER: based on the Jamaican song: When First I Heard The Ska by Delroy and Paulette*)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
MUSICIANS [possible lineup]: Bernard Purdie (drums), Chuck Rainey (bass), Eric Gale (guitars), Richard Tee (piano), Hugh Masekela (trumpet).
••• NOTE: (liner notes of CW: Freedom Time): guitarist & percussionists unknown. They probably meant that the names of an additional guitarist and a percussionist (s) are unknown.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: this remix, made in New York, was the way the song was supposed to be marketed. The original tapes were taken to New York City, to Harry Belafonte’s studio, where arranger-producers like Arthur
Jenkins and Joe Venneri often added soul strings, horns and other instruments with some of the best studio musicians of the time, many of them from the Aretha Franklin’s band. As the radio stations never
gave much airplay to the single BEND DOWN LOW/MELLOW MOOD, no other singles were released.
NOTE: Mento influences: In 1967 (CORRECTION: rather 1968), The Wailers were so impressed by the emergence of rock steady that they recorded a song in that style. It was called ROCKING STEADY, and in
it, they sang about the first time they heard this new music that had become all the rage. This song is a cover of a Count Lasher hit. In 1959, Lasher was so impressed by the emergence of cha cha, that he
recorded a mento song in that style. It was called CALYPSO CHA CHA CHA, and in it, he sang about the first time he heard this new music that had become all the rage. This was the last time Bob Marley
was involved with mento, though the other Wailers continued longer. (www.mentomusic.com)
NOTE: Roger Steffens says that it is based on the Jamaican song: When First I Heard The Ska by Delroy and Paulette, but other sources (Jeremy Collingwood and www.mentomusic.com) states that it’s an
adaptation of: Calypso Cha Cha Cha by Count Lasher & His Calypsians (1958). Possible conclusion: WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE SKA is an adaptation of CALYPSO CHA CHA CHA.
NOTE: a 4-track tape has the following songs written on it, so probably from the same session: ROCKING STEADY, ROCK TO THE ROCK, CHANCES ARE, NICE TIME, LOVE, RHAPSODY, MELLOW MOOD,
BEND DOWN LOW, MUSIC GONNA TEACH, ONE LOVE TRUE LOVE, PUT IT ON, HOW MANY TIMES. (GK1213)
NOTE: the sleeve of the JAD CD single Kaya states that ROCK TO THE ROCK was recorded in February 1968. All of the songs enumerate upper were probably recorded at the same time with the same musicians.
NOTE: this song was later known as Rock Steady.
NOTE: I have in my notes that Bunny was playing violin on this track, which doesn’t make sence, as he was in jail when that song was recorded. I don’t remember where I took that info.

• Rocking Steady (68) (1982’ overdub + remix 1) (AVAILABLE ON: only on the rare 7-inch single)
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
OVERDUB DESCRIPTION (RS+LJP): original recording with the additional organ, synthesizer and drums. Overdubbed and mixed by Clement Dodd.
–– ––––––– ––––––– –––––
NOTE: It might seems confusing as it’s a song recorded by JAD and it is remixed by Coxsone. • NOTE (AC): single released in 1982
NOTE (WK): Those remixes are not bad. Some subtile additions in the beginning, plus some more addition here and there during the song, but not too much affecting the original recording.
NOTE (GD): It’s from the same 1968 session as Rock To The Rock and several other tracks produced by Danny Sims. I don't have a clue regarding why Coxsone had a copy of that tape in his vaults,
but Rocking Steady was definitely not recorded at Studio One. Coxsone has also released Lee Perry material on his own label... go figure, Jamaican business!

NOTE: this mix was made by Bruno Blum in 2002. He worked from the 1968 New York mixes and removed all (?) the additional tracks to make it as close as the original recording. The original recording as not
emerge so far, but if Bruno Blum went through this process, that probably means that the original tapes are no longer existing. This SOUL MIX is exclusive to The Comple Wailers collection. He removed the
additional instruments and ad some drums. It’s very close to this original version. The intro is closer to the 1968 NY remixes than the original, plus it’s two seconds shorter.

NOTE: This overdub is not described in the book The Complete Discography. In 2006, Heartbeat re-issued the double CD compilation One Love At Studio One and replaced four overdubdes version by their
original versions. The song ROLLING STONE is one of them. Therefore it makes it easier to realised that the version included on Marley Tosh Livingston and Associates is an overdubbed version.
NOTE: It is unknown to me if the song featured on Presenting Jamaica All Stars Vol.1 is also the overdubbed version. According to the book The Definitive Discography, this version would be identical to the
one featured on Marley Tosh Livingston And associates.

additional drums, guitars percussion and sound effect.
