This is not a complete catalogue listing, but includes most of Bob's compositions which have been released on record.
The early creators of reggae music have often seen their contributions go unrecognised and unrewarded. Their struggle for justice continues...

In as many cases as possible where proper writer and/or publisher credits have not been given on a release, we've drawn your attention to the incorrect information printed by the record label.
