interview - percussion

"I love the arrangement of the percussion sounds in the classical Bob Marley and the Wailers music. For example ONE DROP (SURVIVAL)!"
"We all play those on the records that you hear, all those percussion parts. There will be like five people at one time around certain microphones, you know. And we all would play one part just to fit the song. And we would never overdo."
Listen to Al Anderson! (130 K)

"Percussion sometimes is very rampant, staccato. And this was very laid back and just in the groove with the music. So that's the way it came across the way it did and you could hear it much better, and it was a constant drumming or cymbal."
Listen to Al Anderson! (140 K)
