Following a pair of successful concerts in San Francisco, Bob Marley and the Wailers headed to LA for a closed-door session at Capitol Studios, recorded by producer Denny Cordell on October 24, 1973. Cordell had previously released Bob Marley and the Wailers’ first U.S. single on his and Leon Russell’s Shelter Records in 1971, and he was also instrumental in the group’s signing to Island Records.
