Notes

This compilation of tracks recorded by The Wailers from 1964 to 1966 was instrumental in introducing the world, particularly the U.S. audience, not only to the early music of The Wailers, but to Ska music in general.

A year later, CBS Records acquired the rights to the compilation and initially partnered with Calla to re-release it by splitting it into two individual releases -- The Birth Of A Legend (tracks 1-10) and Early Music (tracks 11-20).
