Natty Dread is a spiritually charged political and social statement. It opens with a blues-influenced positive celebration of skanking, reggae and sex, “Lively Up Yourself”, which Marley used to open many of his concerts, in order to get the audience worked up; American R&B star Prince used it for the same purpose. The original and still unreleased demo of the Island version of “Lively up Yourself” was recorded in 1973. This was the last time all three original Wailers (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Neville “Bunny” Livingston) recorded together in a studio. This version featured each Wailer singing a verse each.
