Island 73
 
bob marley's 'catch a fire' and 'burnin'

were they tracked and mixed in the same studio?

No - Catch a Fire was tracked in Jamaica then transferred from 8 track to 16 track and overdubbed in Island studios

Burnin' was a combination with some tracking done in Jamaica and overdubbed in London and others tracked and overdubbed in London

(No I can't remember which songs!)

Both were mixed at Island studios

and can you remember the main reverbs used at the time?

The only reverb we had available was EMT plates
