    I've included in this comp all Studio One recordings on which the Wailers appear, even those credited to other artists. Alternate takes and instrumental versions are included at the end of each volume. Later overdubs exist of a number of titles; I have not included these.

    Sources

    All CDs are credited to Bob Marley & The Wailers, except as noted. All titles prefixed "HB" are on the Heartbeat label, a division of Rounder Records.

    Mastering

    HB 118, 150, 171, and 172 are not in true mono: the left and right channels vary by a good bit. I found it necessary in each case to pick one channel and discard the other.

    HB 118, 150, 171, and 172 seem to be uncompressed. All later CD releases are compressed, maximized, and digitally clipped to varying degrees. After much experimentation, I found that a simple gain cut was the best way to make these later tracks sit well with the earlier ones. Aim for an RMS level of about -16dB to -18dB and everything will sound OK.

    HB 118 no change
    HB 150 no change
    HB 171 no change
    HB 172 no change
    HB 191 reduce gain -2dB
    HB 201 reduce gain -2dB
    HB 251 reduce gain -3.7dB
    HB 261 reduce gain -3.7dB
    HB 319 reduce gain -3.7dB
    HB 335 reduce gain -3.7dB
    HB 339 reduce gain -5.0dB
    KAZO reduce gain -3.2 dB

    Note: Track 13, "Good Good Rudie (Jailhouse)," is the last Studio One recording on which Bob Marley appears. Bob left Jamaica for Delaware in February of 1966 and did not return until October, after the remainder of the Studio One sides had been recorded. In the interim, Bob's place in the Wailers was taken by Constantine "Vision" Walker.
