Half-speed mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London

Twelve Bob Marley & The Wailers albums are being remastered and reissued by Tuff Gong International through a limited-edition LP series to be available starting November 20, 2020. They include all nine Bob Marley & The Wailers studio albums recorded for Island Records, plus the live albums Live! and Babylon By Bus, and the world's best-selling reggae album, Legend.

Half-speed mastering produces far superior high-frequency (treble) response, and richer and fuller low-to-middle frequencies. All tracks were mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London.

"Uprising would be the final studio album featuring Bob Marley & the Wailers to be released during Marley's lifetime. Prophetically, it also contains some of the band's finest crafted material, as if they were cognizant that this would be their final outing. The album's blend of religious and secular themes likewise creates a very powerful and singular quest for spirituality in a material world. Although it is argued that an album's graphic design rarely captures the essence of the work inside, the powerful rebirthing image of a rock solid Marley emerging with his arms raised in triumph could not be a more accurate visual description of the musical jubilation within. Musically, the somewhat staid rhythms often synonymous with reggae have been completely turned around to include slinky and liquid syncopation. 'Work,' 'Pimper's Paradise,' and the lead-off track 'Coming in From the Cold' are all significant variations on the lolloping Rasta beat. The major difference is the sonic textures that manipulate and fill those patterns." — AllMusic
