Our Review

Island’s expanded reissue of Bob Marley’s watershed album provides some much needed perspective on Marley’s meteoric ascent to stardom. The first album of the set gives fans a glimpse of Catch a Fire in its original Jamaican mix, while the second contains the overdubbed, Chris Blackwell supervised version that ultimately garnered Marley and the Wailers so much recognition. Bob Marley was already a hardened veteran of the Jamaican music scene by the time that Catch a Fire saw 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 preeminent 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. 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, and Catch a Fire remains one of the most revelatory Jamaican albums ever recorded.

Customer Reviews

Catch This Fire! (5 stars)
The harmony of Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Bob Marley is oh so pure! Start with Concrete Jungle, and just keep rollin' along with Aston "Family Man" Barrett's effortless bass groove. Don't miss Peter Tosh wailin' on "400 years"!

Jamaican Simplicity (5 stars)
Some of the Jamaican versions are great for how simple they are. This is a must have for Bob fans. If you just buy one song, get High Tide or Low Tide

One of the best Bob Marley Albums (4 stars)
I would buy this, it has some of the best songs, not neccesarily some of the most well-known, but has never the less great songs. "Concrete Jungle" is one of the classics with a somewhat discrete message to it. I would buy this no matter what.

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...
