Some of you casual reggae listeners may just know of Trench Town from the title of a Bob Marley song, without giving much thought to it. If so, this documentary is one you should see. It's a violence ridden place, not at all the reggae epicenter you might imagine it is between puffs on your giant ass bong. Even if you're a reggae fiend and know the reputation of Trench Town, you should find this interesting.
The songs below are just a few early pre-Island Records Bob Marley oddballs. The first two are Marley with the Upsetters (!), produced by Lee Perry (!). The third was produced by Leslie Kong and released on Jad Records.
