Bob Marley & The Wailers - Santana's Secret Tape 1975-1980

Please don't ask me how this album came by this title because I have no idea. As much as my mind would love to believe that Carlos Santana hid in a trunk during Wailers rehearsals with a tape recorder for 5 years - the cynic in me just won't buy it. What we do have here is some wondeful and ultra-rare versions of a bunch of their greatest songs. Live versions of 'Rebel Music' & 'Waiting In Vain' that whet the appetite for the true rarities including an alternate version of 'Real Situation' and Dub Takes of 'One Love' , 'Keep On Moving' and 'Buffalo Soldier'. Others greats round out the set and I defy you to find better Bob Marley & The Wailers bootlegs anywhere (well, I defy you and then I beg you to send me a link). This one is good for your soul so listen in and unwind.
