Notes

For Bob Marley, 1975 was a triumphant year. The singer’s Natty Dread album featured one of his strongest batches of original material (the first compiled after the departure of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer) and delivered Top 40 hit “No Woman No Cry.”

Natty Dread is Bob Marley’s finest album, the ultimate reggae recording of all time. This was Marley’s first album without former bandmates Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston, and the first released as Bob Marley & the Wailers. The Wailers’ rhythm section of bassist Aston ‘Family Man’ Barrett and drummer Carlton ‘Carlie’ Barrett remained in place and even contributed to the songwriting, while Marley added a female vocal trio, the I-Threes (which included his wife Rita Marley), and additional instrumentation to flesh out the sound. The material presented here defines what reggae was originally all about, with political and social commentary mixed with religious paeans to Jah. The celebratory ‘Lively Up Yourself’ falls in the same vein as ‘Get Up, Stand Up’ from Burnin’. ‘No Woman, No Cry’ is one of the band’s best-known ballads. ‘Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)’ is a powerful warning that ‘a hungry mob is an angry mob.’ ‘Rebel Music (3 O’Clock Road Block)’ and ‘Revolution’ continue in that spirit, as Marley assumes the mantle of prophet abandoned by ’60s forebears like Bob Dylan.” — AllMusic
