JC don´t mention this one. I think I remember I saw this one with three coloured label on ebay. If not a wrong info, then this single is an early reissue.

Both tracks were recorded circa June 1967 and the single was released probably in July 1967.
This single appears on the classic label with black writing on red, green & gold background.
The label looks very similar to the original. But a careful comparison shows a few differences:
In the upper green part the words “Bunnie”, “Peter” and “Bob” are not at the same place as on the original label. The reissue have the words in perfect triangle. The original has the three words placed not that symmetric.
More obvious in another difference. The reissue has all letters of “Bob Marley And The Wailers” in big letters, the original has only the first letters of each word in big letters and all other in small letters.

This single is a Wail´N Soul´M repressing made ca. 1967 – 1969, using a new stamper for the a-side. This is not mentioned by RS. Info by JC. Bunny Wailer talks about this broken stamper and the expensive replacement at “Wailers Legacy”.

Fire Fire ? (Matrix: WIRL BM 4230-2?)
The seller of this single describe the matrix of the b-side as WIRL BM 4230-B, but such a matrix is unknown. At first I thought it could be a reading mistakle and in fact the matrix would be WIRL BM 4230-3, but this is the matrix of the second stamper of Bus Dem Shut. This is not likely as the second stamper was made after the first was destroyed. So I think the matrix is probably WIRL BM 4230-2, the second stamper of “Fire Fire”.
This repressing appears with blank labels. JC don´t mention this one. I saw this one at ebay.

Funeral (Credit: Bob Marley And The Wailing Wailers) (Matrix: WIRL BM 3672-1) /
(Pound Get A Blow) (Matrix: WIRL BM 3673-1)
Both tracks were recorded in January 1968 and released somewhen between February and April 1967.
This single appears on the classic label with black writing on red, green & gold background (a-side only), the b-side is blank with some stamped: “14, Crescent Road”). RS don´t mention this unlabeled b-side, but also don´t give a picture, so maybe or not there are also copies with both sides labeled and titled.

JC don´t mention this one. I think I saw this one on ebay. I think the a-side is labeled and the b-side is blank.


Bunny Wailer remembers that at the same session as “Funeral” and “Pound Get A Blow” also “Hammer” would be recorded. And this song would be released circa 1968. But nobody ever found a copy or can tell further details.


Blank, Original, 1968
(Stepping Razor) (no credit) (Matrix: WIRL BM 3707-1) /
(I´m Hurting Inside) (no credit) (Matrix: WIRL BM 3708-1)
Both tracks were recorded in January 1968 and released somewhen between February and April 1967. RS don´t tell that this is the original pressing. But from the matrixes we see the songs are mastered at the same time. And all other couplings of “Stepping Razor” and of “Hurting Inside” have an older song on the flip. So it seems sure, that this is the original pressing.
This single appears with blank labels. Some are stamped on a-side or b-side: “14, Crescent Road”.

This 7-inch appears with the vertical written “Wail N Soul M”. The b-side is unknown. I think the original pressing of “Feel Alright” was blank labeled and the picture with the vertical label belongs to a second pressing. Or it is in fact the original label and the blank labeled 7-inches belong to the same pressing.
