Soul Revolution was The Wailers' second album for Perry, originally released in a very limited edition on the Jamaican Maroon label. All of these terrific songs sound rough around the edges here, occasionally including mistakes in the vocals and sometimes ending in the middle of a verse suddenly, giving them a spontaneous, demo quality. Most listeners will be put off by Perry's unusual mix of the music - vocals in the right channel, rhythms in the left - but that's the way it was originally released (other compilations of this material have a "straight" mix). Some of the signature tunes of the Marley-Perry partnership are here, including "Duppy Conqueror", "Kaya", and "Mr. Brown."
