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. Released in April 1973, Catch A Fire did for reggae what Please Please Me, the first Beatles album, had done for pop and rock exactly a decade earlier. An album of revolutionary genius, which combined perfect timing with lasting cultural significance, Catch A Fire laid a foundation stone for the career of the world’s first and indeed only reggae superstar and established a bridgehead between the deep roots music of Jamaica and the commercial pop mainstream of the First World. Its release marked the moment that reggae truly did begin to catch fire on the international stage.

Catch a Fire The Wailers. B. Bob Marley & The Wailers.

Catch a Fire was the major label debut for Bob Marley and the Wailers, and it was an international success upon its release in 1973. Although Bob Marley may have been the main voice, every member of the Wailers made valuable contributions and they were never more united in their vision and sound.

CATCH A FIRE is the second mainstream album release for The Wailers. Contrary to popular belief, their first album released outside of Jamaica was SOUL REBEL in 1970. This, however, would be the album were Reggae truly arrived & the masses took notice. This is why today The Wailers and especially Bob Marley are so very beloved and admired by countless millions around the world. Their songs were songs of revolution and not just in a physical since but also mental and spiritual as well. Their will never be another band like them and those of us who were blessed to witness their greatness while together have never and will never be the same.

Bob Marley was already a rising star in Jamaica when Catch a Fire took his name around the globe. This 1973 album mixed street-level views of Kingston life with stunning melodic sensibilities, and the blends of sounds and harmonies began to register with mainstream rock audiences. From the plaintive reportage of Concrete Jungle to the youth rallying cry of 400 Years to the poppy drone of Stir It Up, Marley, along with fellow Wailers Bunny Marley and Peter Tosh, created a masterpiece with unyielding staying power.

Catch a Fire was the Wailers' and reggae's introduction to the world and turned Bob Marley into a mega-icon of enormous proportions.
