EDITORS’ NOTES

There's no escaping how "No Woman, No Cry" dominates Bob Marley's 1974 studio album—and rightly so, as it's one of his most lyrically nuanced and musically tender tunes. But don't sleep on the tracks that surround it: "Lively Up Yourself" is a cool mood-setter that runs on slinky, lilting grooves, and "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Road Block)" is a freedom cry bolstered by clever use of harmonica. The presence of vocal trio The I Threes helps smooth out any lingering rough edges.
