Bob Marley & The Wailers - Roots Rock Reggae b/w Talkin´ Blues (1976) - single

Bob Marley & The Wailers was a reggae band created by Bob Marley in 1974. “Rastaman Vibration” is a roots reggae album by Bob Marley & The Wailers released on April 30, 1976. While the album was a big hit in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to hit the top ten on the Billboard 200 charts , it did not generate a significant hit single, although "Roots, Rock, Reggae" was the only Bob Marley single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 charts, peaking at #51. Synthesizers are featured prominently on this album, adding a breezy embellishment to otherwise hard-driving songs with strong elements of rock guitar.
