What makes The Best of the Wailers interesting amid the scores of Bob Marley collections that mine and mine again his pre-Island Records catalog is that all of the tracks he did with producer Leslie Kong in 1970 are here in a nifty CD facsimile of the original Jamaican LP (which was issued on Kong's famed Beverley's label). This makes it a tangible bit of history as opposed to just another thrown together set of random Marley tracks. Later that same year Marley began working with producer Lee "Scratch" Perry and that collaboration was to produce what was arguably the greatest material of Marley's career. The Beverley's tracks showcase a Marley & the Wailers poised to make that leap.
