Included here is the Melody Makers very first single titled “Trodding.” Written by Bob Marley, produced by Rita Marley, and engineered by the great Errol Brown at Tuff Gong, the single was released on the Tuff Gong imprint circa 1985/86. The 7″ record is contained in a picture sleeve, which is displayed below.
Here is an interesting clipping fom the August 20, 1979 issue of the Gleaner.
I have included a righteous rip of my Melody Makers 7″ (EMI) “Play The Game Right” / “Lying In Bed.” If you’ve never heard “Lying In Bed” it is one of the most beautiful and haunting singles you’ve ever heard. I don’t know why they never re-recorded this one for a later album. Wow! It will creep up on you if you’re not careful. “Lying In Bed” was included on the album Children Playing – an album that was never officially released.
Music by The Wailers Band.
You may have to play with the toggle to get it to play. MixCloud is really acting a fool.
