Label: Cleopatra Limited edition red vinyl pressing. The original 1971 Upsetter Records mono mix of this classic LP in its original jacket art. Appearing in Jamaica in 1971, Soul Revolution Part II is a sequel of sorts to 1970’s Soul Rebels. Both albums were culled from Marley & The Wailers’ collaboration with Lee “Scratch” Perry, who was also just coming into his own as a producer of distinction in Jamaica. Although Marley & The Wailers’ work with Scratch is considered by many reggae fans to mark career pinnacles for all involved, this stretch has also been one of the most neglected portions of Marley & The Wailers’ catalog - Soul Revolution was never given a proper release outside of Jamaica. Many of the Scratch-produced tracks ended up being re-recorded for Marley’s Island records. Soul Revolution includes superior versions of “Kaya” and Richie Havens’ “African Herbsman” that are so sedate and ethereal that you can practically smell the ganja smoke coming from the speakers.
