Bob Marley / Natty Dread LP Vinyl, Record - Reggae
Natty Dread is Bob Marley's ultimate reggae recording of all time. His first album without fPeter Tosh and Bunny Livingston, and the first released as Bob Marley & the Wailers. Marley added a female vocal trio, the I-Threes (which included his wife Rita Marley), and additional instrumentation to flesh out the sound.
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.
