CHAPTER 3:
TED POUDER PRODUCTIONS

The rumour says: Jamaican 7-inch release: Dynamic, 1970 a-side: This Train / Thank You Lord (credit: The Bob Marley Singers) (Ian McCann gives this info about the single, whereas the The Complete Wailers 1967 – 1972 – sleeve-notes say, that Bunny Wailer remembers of this single, of which no copy ever has been found.) In fact the track seems to be taken from a studio tape.
UK Longplay release: In The Beginning, Trojan TRLS 221, 1983 (2,46)
French LP release: The Complete Wailers 1967 – 1972 – Part I – Selassie Is The Chapel, JAD AB 06891, 1997 (2,39)
USA CD release: The Complete Wailers 1967 – 1972 – Part 2 – Selassie Is The Chapel, JAD CD 1002, 1998 (2,39)
French CD release: Rebel (3-CD-Box), EMI / Fifty Five 541 393-2, 2002 (2,37)
Not part of USA CD release: Fy-Ah, Fy-Ah, CD-Box, Universal, 2004 because of obvious mistake, “This Train (Wail´N Soul´M)” appears twice instead of this one.
