Bob Marley And The Wailers Babylon By Bus on 180g 2LP
Featuring the Original Die-Cut Cover with the Color Printed Inner Sleeves Showing Through!
In correlation with Bob Marley’s 70th birthday year-long celebration (2015) and the release of the expansive Complete Island Recordings vinyl box, the 11 LP's from the set will also be broken out and released individually on 180-gram vinyl beginning in September 2015. Apart from the actual disc labels which will feature more recently reissued artwork, the LP's will faithfully replicate the original album pressings.
The individual issues encompass all nine Bob Marley & The Wailers studio albums recorded for Island Records including some of their most celebrated releases like 1972 label debut Catch A Fire, 1976 US breakthrough Rastaman Vibration and the two live albums Live! (1975) and Babylon By Bus (1978). Also available: Burnin’ (1973), Natty Dread (1974), Exodus (1977), Kaya (1978), Survival (1979), Uprising (1980) and Confrontation (1983).
Captured in the midst of their Kaya tour in the spring of 1978, Bob Marley And The Wailers' second live recording, Babylon By Bus, is considered one of reggae’s most powerful and influential concert albums. No performer connected to and/or inspired his audience quite like Bob Marley captured to full effect here in definitive live versions of "Exodus," "Stir It Up," "Kinky Reggae" "Lively Up Yourself," and "Is This Love" among many others. Featuring the original die-cut cover with the color printed inner sleeves showing through.
