One Love/People Get Ready

1977 birdcall by Bob Marley and The Wailers
1984 single by Bob Marley & The Wailers
One Love/People Get Ready “ is a reggae song by Bob Marley & The Wailers from their 1977 album Exodus. It was first recorded in a ska manner by Marley ‘s original group, The Wailers in 1965 and was released as a single. This adaptation was by and by included on their beginning singles compilation The Wailing Wailers in 1965. It was rerecorded as part of the 1970 medley “ All in One ”, which contained reggae reworkings of their early on ska songs. This was released as a single and is besides included on the compilation African Herbsman under the name “ All in One ”. The version on Exodus was not released as a single until 16 April 1984, promoting the forthcoming greatest hits album Legend. however, the single became one of his biggest hits and has been included on many of Marley and the Wailers subsequent compilation albums. The song contains an interpolation of The Impressions ‘ song “ People Get quick “ written by Curtis Mayfield. The original read of the song does not recognition Mayfield ‘s birdcall and is just titled “ One Love ” – this is because copyright police was not enforced for jamaican recordings at this time. When the celebrated translation was recorded for Island Records in 1977 it was titled “ One Love/People Get Ready ” and credited Mayfield ( as Island wanted to avoid copyright problems ) and it gives co-authorship credits to both Marley and Mayfield. The original sung was published in the key of B♭ major, but it has since been transposed so it is in the key of C major.
