Bob Marley And The Wailers ‎– Nice Time - (Plus Dub Versions)

"Nice Time" is a french release, published back in 1991/1992, including Bob Marley & The Wailers songs from various producers. Nearly the same tracks in a different run were released on the definitly wrong labeld "All The Hits" album.
Just when you think you've seen it all, and you're positive that there's no way left to recycle the same old batch of Bob Marley & the Wailers' early reggae records, suddenly a compilation appears that makes you sit up and take notice. What sets this set apart, then, is that every vocal cut is twinned with its B-side instrumental version (labeled as "dubbs," not to be confused with "alternate" vocal takes that have also been making appearances on a wide number of compilations). If you bought the 45s when they were initially released, this is precisely what you would have gotten. In some cases, the backing instrumental track is more interesting that the A-side, a reflection that not all these songs showcase the Wailers at their best. Most importantly, it provides a snapshot of the early reggae era, a time when new rhythms and productions had come to the fore, and fans were as keen to hear the backing (preferably with a DJ mashing it up on top) as the singers themselves. This collection is still a refreshingly new take on an otherwise pretty tired set of songs.
