Previously unreleased.
EU CD release: Man To Man Box, Universal, 2005 (3,51)
Note: This track was released as if if would be recorded in 1968 as a JAD demo. But now it is believed “Cry On”, “Down By The The River” and the unreleased “Can´t Bow Inna Babylon” are recorded at one session in 1980.

Down By The River (Acoustic)

Previously unreleased.
EU CD release: Man To Man Box, Universal, 2005 (2,02)
Note: This track was released as if if would be recorded in 1968 as a JAD demo. But now it is believed “Cry On”, “Down By The The River” and the unreleased “Can´t Bow Inna Babylon” are recorded at one session in 1980.


Slogans

Recorded 1980 as a composing tape. Finally released is a 2005 Remix featuring Eric Clapton on guitar. See 2005.


Kilimanjaro Sound System Specials

Bob Marley recorded new vocals in 1980 over original rhythms for exclusive use of Kilimanjaro. This means only the lead vocals are new, there is no new recording of the music, the music was used as we have it from the original recordings:
Bad Play (Bad Card)
Get Up Stand Up
Redemption Song
No Sound Boy No Cry
A traded cdr called “Kilimandjaro Dubplates” includes some clips of circa one minute of each of these dubplates. I estimate that RS used the same source when he lists these four dubplates in his book. There is some talk these would not have Bob Marley on vocals. To me it seems quiet obviosu that it is Bob Marley singing here. But there is also the dj Kilimandjaro talking and introducing these dubplates. And there are other artists dubplates on the same cdr too. Maybe this is the reason for such talk.

1981

Written by Bob Marley.
Lead vocals and guitar by Bob Marley, harmonies by Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt.
Recorded 1975 during the “Rastaman Vibration” sessions. Mixed by Aston Familyman Barrett in 1981. Probably following the demand of Bob Marley. So this track would be in fact a post-humous release, but the last release directed by Bob Marley.

I Know (7-inch)

Short mix without an instrumental part.
Jamaican 7-inch release: Tuff Gong, 1981, a-side: I Know (3,15) (Matrix: TG 1987A) / b-side: I Know Dub
Never released on CD.
Note: The 12-inch mix (See above) and the 1983 remix (See Posthumous Releases) are made from the same take.
Note: RS don´t mention a 7-inch mix at all. JC mentions this matrix to be the first. I own a pressing with this matrix made around 1994.

Different to the 12-inch dub. Instrumental version featuring some harmony vocals by the I-Threes and also featuring Bob Marley´s lead vocals at 1 min 15 sec.

Natural Mystic (1981 Remix)

This is the album track from “Exodus” (1977) remixed and including field recordings from Jamaica in the background.
Frst UK Longplay release: O.S.T. Countryman, Island, 1982, Do-LP
German 7-inch release: Island 104 099-100, 1982: a-side: Natural Mystic (3,30) / b-side: Carry Us Beyond (Human Cargo), 1982
French 7-inch release: Island 6010 497, 1982: a-side: Natural Mystic (3,30) / b-side: Carry Us Beyond (Human Cargo), 1982
CD release: O. S. T. Countryman, Island, CD
Note: To my knowledge during 1981 it was one of the last projects of Bob Marley to support the production of the movie “Countryman” (released 1982) with some of his songs. RS don´t tell the date of the remixes of “Natural Mystic” and “Small Axe” but title “Time Will Tell” as “1982 Remix”. This may be connected to the release in 1982 not to the date of the mix. But it may be a confirmation that it is only a rumour that Bob Marley was connected to this movie sound track.

Time Will Tell (1981 Remix)

This is the album track from “Kaya” (1978) in nyahbinghi dub remix.
First UK Longplay release: O.S.T. Countryman, Island, 1982, Do-LP
CD release: O. S. T. Countryman, Island, CD

Small Axe (1981 Remix)

This is the album track from “Burnin´” (1973) remixed with some vocals dropped.
First UK Longplay release: O.S.T. Countryman, Island, 1982, Do-LP
CD release: O. S. T. Countryman, Island, CD
Note: The original sound track also features “Road Block (alternate)” and “Rastaman Chant”, “Rat Race”, “Jah Live” and “Pass It On”. RS tells, these are all the album tracks. Some say, these were further remixes. I think they may sound marginally different as they were used as background music for a movie sound track. For the collector this finally make no difference as the sound track is a must because of the remixes of “Natural Mystic”, “Time Will Tell” and “Small Axe” with or without further specials.
