Bob Marley & The Wailers - Burnin' (Jamaican Reissue)
Numbered and Pressed Exclusively at the Legendary Tuff Gong International Headquarters in Kingston, Jamaica; Mastered by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters in Los Angeles
The Marley Family, Tuff Gong, and UMe commemorate Bob Marley's 78th birthday with the release of twelve Bob Marley vinyl LPs, each numbered and pressed exclusively at the legendary Tuff Gong International headquarters in Kingston, Jamaica, featuring nine original studio albums and two original live albums, plus the world's best-selling reggae album, Legend, all including a highly-desirable Tuff Gong stamp. The albums were pressed at Tuff Gong's newly refurbished vinyl pressing plant, which re-opened in the summer of 2020 and has an annual capacity of 250,000 units. Each album was mastered by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters in Los Angeles.
The album Burnin' (1973) was released the same year as Bob Marley And The Wailers' Island debut Catch A Fire and launched the reggae anthems "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up." Eric Clapton's No. 1 pop version of "I Shot The Sheriff" gave a major boost to reggae's acceptance with the general public and to recognition for Marley, who some have called the first Third World superstar. But the album would be the last Wailers effort with Tosh and Livingston. By 1974, the original trio of Marley, Tosh and Livingston broke up, going their separate ways.
