The Wailers, featuring the legendary Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, became the most influential band in the history of Reggae music. Catch A Fire, their first Island album released in 1973, introduced them to an international rock audience.
Here the principal figures in the creation of Catch A Fire tell the story of how this record was designed to ¬"cross-over¬". The program features a unique interview and performance with Bunny Wailer, rare archive interviews with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, and contributions in words and music from many of those who performed on the record, like bass players Family Man Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare and Bob¬s wife Rita Marley.
Featuring rare home movies of The Wailers in Jamaica, previously unseen footage, and unique performances of many album tracks such as Stir It Up, Stop That Train and Kinky Reggae, this is a documentary that will endlessly fascinate the viewer and is both a genuine tribute to a great supergroup and an insight into a true reggae Classic Album.
