I don't think that CD (TJPBX245) was sold separately. It comes in the 4CD box 'Soul Revolutionaries'.

Really nice audio, but... plays with so many ticks and pops, it's annoying. Not sure why this was pressed in 45 rpm either.

Recorded before their involvement with Lee Perry but not released until 1971 this is the Wailers at their soulful best. The songs are simple yet powerful. Like "Soul Rebels", there are great harmonies between Marley, Tosh and Bunny Wailer, and unlike their later releases with Island records the sound isn't embellished. Each and every song is memorable, they are all classics to me.
