The Wailers: Catch A Fire

Gene Sculatti, Fusion, May 1973

AFTER ALL THESE veers, a new Wailers' LP! But wait, Catch A Fire doesn't have anything to do with those soggy Seattle-ites who rocked hot and cool in the days of old. These Wailers hail from Jamaica in the Caribbean, home of rum, brown sugar, crumbling colonial forts, white duck togs, blacks with goofy English accents and this kind of music they call reggae.
