Bob Marley and The Wailers’ “Kaya” Gets 40th Anniversary Edition

Bob Marley and the Wailers: Kaya 40Four decades after its initial release, the historic Bob Marley and the Wailers album Kaya is new once again with a 40th Anniversary edition. The album features some of the band’s most recognizable songs including “Is This Love”, “Satisfy My Soul”, and “Easy Skanking”. The Wailers lineup was of course anchored by the mighty Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who contributed his beautiful groove on the bass.

The CD and vinyl editions of Kaya 40 include the original album plus new mixes by Stephen “Ragga” Marley that utilizes different vocal takes from his father. By synchronizing them with alternate takes and adjusting the arrangements, Stephen evokes some subtle and some not so subtle changes to the songs. Check out the Kaya 40 mix of “Is This Love”:
