The Roots of the Roots

groundhog

My first exposure to Bob Marley was through his Island Records recordings. I didn't realize it, but these records were an attempt to crossover into the rock-pop market. They were "rocked up" a bit from his Jamaican-produced stuff, with more guitar solos, faster tempos and studio enhancements. This is different beast. Those of you familiar with the Len Perry/Black Ark vibe will recognize it here. The sound "quality" (such as it is - I would characterize it as more of a "patina") reminds one of a ganga-smoke haze. M e l l o w in comparison to the more brittle Island records. But what really grabs you is the minimal instrumentation. Makes sense, the Wailers were primarily a vocal group, with quite supple harmonies. Few guitar solos here - just a proper 2-and-4 backbeat, thank you very much - but the wonderful basslines of Aston "Family Man" Barrett to shine through. I still listen to the Island records, but I find the beauty of these songs more evident in this simple setting.

40 Years of Catch A Fire

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

"Time is my ammunition," says Bob Marley in a room at the Chelsea Hotel in July of 1973. Now 40 years have passed — longer than Bob himself strode upon this earth singing his redemption song. The night before we spoke, I had watched transfixed as the Wailers played Max's Kansas City, opening for Bruce Springsteen. Not that it was an unusual billing for Max's: A week later Iggy Pop would headline three midnight performances; in… more »

Six Degrees of A Love Supreme

By Britt Robson, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Reggae’s Ba-Ba Boom Time

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

Despite the fire and brimstone that characterized reggae's revolutionary emergence in the 1970s, I have always had an abiding affection for the evolutionary period that immediately preceded that breakthrough, when the music seemed caught between two worlds. The style is usually referred to as rocksteady - post-Ska, but still experimenting with and expanding the possibilities of that one-drop, loping afterbeat; and though Rastafarian ideology was already beginning to swiftly gospelize the music (anthemed most notably… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Purple Pyramid’s Complete Upsetter Singles: 1970-1972 covers the territory laid out in the title — 36 songs, both A and B sides, plus dub versions and bonus tracks, spill out over the course of two CDs. Though this material has appeared numerous times on numerous labels over the years, this particular collection is logically assembled, boasts pretty good sound, and is comprehensive, making it a good choice for those seeking a thorough overview of these pivotal, Lee Perry-produced sessions. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
