"Rastaman Vibration" is a roots reggae album by Bob Marley & The Wailers released on April 30, 1976. While the album was a big hit in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to hit the top ten on the Billboard 200 charts (peaking at #8), it did not generate a significant hit single, although "Roots, Rock, Reggae" was the only Bob Marley single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 charts, peaking at #51.

Trivia

*On the inside of the original album jacket, to the right, reads a message stating "This album jacket is great for cleaning herb."

Quote

*"It's not music right now, we're dealing with a message. Right now the music not important, we're dealing with a message. "Rastaman Vibration" is more like a dub kinda album and it's come without tampering y'know. Like 'War' or 'Rat Race', the music don't take you away, it's more to listen to." –Bob Marley, June 1976
