Description Edit

This compilation, together with "Gold" both hit the stores in 2005 to mark the 60th birthday of The Honourable Robert Nesta Marley, OM. For the first time, an Island-compilation not only focuses on the years 1973 - 1980, but also includes some early Jamaican-only releases/versions as well as brand new remixes featuring other artists. Probably the most eye-catching track on this compilation is the previously unreleased "Slogans", the first new track to be released in more than a decade. Taken from the "Mother B's Bedroom Tapes" Demos, this track has been produced by Bob's sons Ziggy and Stephen, and overdubbed with different instruments (Eric Clapton on guitar).

As with all compilations, the track listing as chosen by Island is disputed among fans. For example, why not including "Fussing And Fighting" instead of "Don't Rock My Boat" which is also on the second disc (as the 1978 version "Satisfy My Soul")? Or why both versions of "Lively Up Yourself" and not a single song from the Survival album?

Two editions are available: a single-disc edition and one with a bonus disc.
