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.

As the title implies, this is indeed Bob Marley & the Wailers captured in performance at the Lyceum Ballroom in London during the final U.K. leg of the Natty Dread tour. Passionate and symbiotic energies constantly cycle between the band and audience, the net result of which is one of the most memorable concert recordings of the pop music era. With the addition of lead guitarist Al Anderson during the recording sessions for their previous long-player, Natty Dread, the Wailers took increasing strides toward a seamless transition into the consciousness of the rock music audience. Anderson's bluesy guitar runs liberate 'Burnin' and Lootin' as well as 'Trenchtown Rock,' the only new composition on Live! Anderson bobs and weaves his supple-toned fretwork among the somewhat staid rhythms common to reggae. The mutual affinity that binds Marley with his audience is evident in the roars of approval that greet the opening notes of 'Them Belly Full (But We Hungry),' 'I Shot the Sheriff,' and 'Kinky Reggae.'" — AllMusic
