Along with the commissioned Marley remixes, it includes the album version from “Old Sock” and the track “No Sympathy” that was originally only available on iTunes.
“The connection between Eric Clapton and Bob Marley runs deep. “Slowhand”’s 1974 version of “I Shot the Sheriff” is perhaps the most famed reggae cover of all-time, and the song that gave Marley’s music some of its earliest mainstream exposure in the U.S. To this day, it’s the only Clapton single (solo or otherwise) to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the only Marley composition to do so as well.
Well, things have come full circle as Marley sons Damian and Stephen have remixed a track off of Clapton’s latest LP, entitled Old Sock. The original track, called “Every Little Thing,” has a bit of a reggae flavor in addition to being an obvious reference to “Three Little Birds.” The Marley crew have done what they do, turning the track into a full-on, one-drop reggae tune.”
