The Wailers' fourth album overall, Burnin', was their Bob Marley & The Wailers - Burnin for Island Records, released only six months after its predecessor, Catch a Fire. Given that speed, it's not surprising that several tracks -- "Put It On," "Small Axe," and "Duppy Conqueror" -- are re-recordings of songs dating back a few years. But they fit in seamlessly with Bob Marley & The Wailers - Burnin newer material, matching its religious militancy and anthemic style.
The confrontational nature of the group's message is apparent immediately in the opening track, "Get Up, Stand Up," as stirring 3 Women Walking - Ottmar Liebert - Nouveau Flamenco song as any that emerged from the American Civil Rights movement a decade before.
The Wailers are explicit in their call to violence, a complete reversal from their own s "Simmer Down" philosophy. Such songs illuminated the desperation of poor Jamaican life, but they also looked forward to religious salvation, their themes accentuated by the compelling rhythms and the alternating vocals of the three singers. Bob Marley was a first among equals, of course, and after this album his partners, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, quit the group, which thereafter was renamed Bob Marley and the Wailers.
