Our Review

Bob Marley was already a hardened veteran of the Jamaican music scene by the time that Catch a Fire saw international release in the spring of 1973. He had recorded low-slung New Orleans style R&B with Leslie Kong, soaring Rocksteady with Coxsone Dodd and adventurous, uncompromising Roots music with the inimitable Lee Perry. Had his career ended in 1972 Marley would still be one of the pre-eminent figures in Jamaican music, but the release of Catch a Fire, one of the first internationally distributed Roots records, set Marley on the path to global superstardom and changed the general public’s conception of reggae forever. While singers like John Holt Desmond Dekker and The Heptones’ Leroy Sibbles had achieved commercial success in the UK and, to a lesser extent, in America with their lovelorn Rocksteady balladry and rowdily picturesque gunman anthems, Marley’s Catch a Fire was unique for its strident political stance and unadorned Roots textures. From the plaintive ghetto reportage of “Concrete Jungle” to the sufferers’ manifesto “400 Years,” Marley, along with fellow Wailers Bunny Marley and Peter Tosh, gives us a street level view of Kingston life with his stunning melodic sensibility and deft lyricism. While Marley would go on to even greater success with his next few releases, Catch a Fire provided a blueprint for his future triumphs, and remains one of the most revelatory Jamaican albums ever recorded.

Customer Reviews

How Am I the First person to write a review for this? (5 stars)
How am I, humble old me, the first person to review this album? Its absurd. I mean, this is the original wailers -- Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer -- all at their very best, working together for one last time. (As if I even gotta tell you, the other two, Bunny and Tosh, are also giants in their own rights, gorgeous singers and songwriters, too!) This is the album that made Marley THE reggae star, and made reggae a worldwide phenome

One of the best from Bob and the Wailers (4 stars)
Catch a Fire and Talkin' Blues....the two Bob albums I would reccomend to anyone who only owns Legend.

FIRE STILL BURNINIG (5 stars)
Instant classic concrete jungle one of the best songs ever!!!

Biography

Born: February 06, 1945 in St. Ann, Jamaica
Genre: Reggae
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

Reggae's most transcendent and iconic figure, Bob Marley was the first Jamaican artist to achieve international superstardom, in the process introducing the music of his native island nation to the far-flung corners of the globe. Marley's music gave voice to the day-to-day struggles of the Jamaican experience, vividly capturing not only the plight of the country's impoverished and oppressed but also the devout spirituality that remains their source of strength. His songs of faith, devotion, and revolution...
