60s Hits Reggae Style

You might skip over this UK Castle Pulse label compilation in a store, assuming the tracks to be by some knock-off studio group, but it is original Jamaican recordings from the Trojan and Creole labels.
Included on Disc 1 of the 2 disc set are 5 Dylan covers, all available on other compilations or artist's CDs, but it's covenient to have them all together.
Hearing the 35 other familiar 60's tunes done Reggae-style is cool too.

Blowin' In The Wind - Earnest Ranglin (instrumental)
It Ain't Me Babe - Bob & Marcia (Bob Andy & Marcia Griffiths duet)
Mr. Tambourine Man - Ken Boothe (original single released as by Keith Hudson)
I Shall Be Released - Inner Circle (although credited to his group here, this is the Jacob Miller solo version from his LP Jacob "Killer" Miller)
Lay Lady Lay - Bob Andy
