Bob Marley and The Wailers Another Dance
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Heartbeat
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
If you ever set foot into the Bob Marley Archives, you’d quickly know there is plenty of unreleased material and rare outtakes awaiting public ears. Archivist Roger Steffens contributes liner notes and, most likely, creative direction on these 18 cuts, originally recorded for Clement Dodd between 1964 and ’66. It’s rough, analog, and gorgeous, if only because you know where Nesta was headed. This is Bob in his ska-soul days, with plenty of soloing horns and (original) dancehall rhythms. Hearing prime cuts that would never be re-recorded for Island, such as the vibrant “Ska Jerk,” and original templates of “One Love” and “Cry to Me,” make this a more-than-worthwhile investment.
