Positive. We need more positive music. I love Bob's voice in the last song.

Outstanding debut from The Wailers, really shows all their potential. "Stir It Up" is a an underapreciated song on Bob's catalogue.

L'esordio nel mercato occidentale dei Wailers, già stelle in patria, spezza l'equilibrio del mercato anglo-americano come nessuno aveva mai fatto prima e mai farà dopo, strizzando leggermente l'occhio al rock più di quanto farà il successivo "Burnin'", che io ho sempre preferito.

Wonderful breakthrough album from Bob Marley and the wailers. Catch a fire, as usual with Wailers albums features quite a few re-recorded songs with new ones, but it's still a tight little album. Concrete jungle, stop that train, and, off course, stir it up, are some of the standout tracks. In my opinion, too many people just buy the, legend, compilation and think that's it. There are plenty of fine songs to discover on Marley's brilliant run of albums on Island. Classic stuff.

One of those rare albums where you can see an artist in it's greatness before they became famous and well-acclaimed. The only other album that has this type of aura is Big, Beaty and Bouncy
