Bob Marley Babylon by Bus

Babylon By Bus is a live album released by Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1978. The album was recorded mostly at the Pavillon de Paris in June 1978, during the Kaya Tour. Like the 1973 album Catch A Fire, the first release had something of a novelty cover. The windows of the bus on the front cover were cut out, revealing part of the inner sleeve. As this was a double album, the listener had a choice of four different scenes to view through the windows.

1. "Positive Vibration" (Vincent Ford)
2. "Punky Reggae Party" (Bob Marley/Lee Perry)
3. "Exodus"

1. "Stir It Up" (Recorded July 18 1975 at The Lyceum, London, England)

3. "Concrete Jungle"
4. "Kinky Reggae"
