The Best Bob Marley Remixes

Bob Marley & The Wailers "African Herbsman" (Remixed by Sen Dog of Cypress HIll) (2002)

Remix by: Sen Dog
Album: Hyper Remix

The title track from an early Wailers album started out as a cover of Richie Havens' psychdelic jam "Indian Ropeman." Besides substituting "herbs" for "rope" and "Africa" for "India," Bob added a wistful lyric about how "The remembrance of today is the sad feeling of tomorrow." Sen Dog of Cypress Hill lets the smoothness of the Wailers' original harmonies show, but roughs things up with some playful sampling and a pounding dance beat.

Original: Bob Marley & The Wailers "African Herbsman" (1971)
