Catch a Fire is the fifth studio album by the reggae band The Wailers, released in April 1973. It was their first album released by Island Records. After touring and recording in the United Kingdom with Johnny Nash, Nash's departure to the United States left the band without enough money to return home; they approached producer Chris Blackwell, who agreed to advance the Wailers money for an album and paid their fares back to Jamaica, where they recorded Catch a Fire
Bob Marley & The Wailers – Catch A Fire. The cover of the Wailers first album The Wailing Wailers, released in 1965, carried a picture of the three principals – Bunny Wailer, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh – neatly groomed in tuxedos and bow ties above the strap-line Jamaica’s Top Rated Singing Sensations. Things had changed somewhat by the time the group made their first UK TV appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test on May 1, 1973. Marley in a blue work-shirt, eyes screwed shut, looked like a young messiah. He was flanked by Wailer on percussion and Tosh in a rasta-coloured beanie hat and rock-dignitary shades playing lead guitar with. Babylon By Bus. Read the story no. .

The album's blend of religious and secular themes likewise creates a very powerful and singular quest for spirituality in a material world
