In 1992 Island Records released some 5"-CD singles with remixes of Bob Marley's original work with the release of the 4CD-box Songs Of Freedom. One and for me the best was Bob Marley & The Wailers: "Why Should I". The track comes in two versions of a "Bone Remix". And bone meens nothing else that the lead instrument is a trom-bone provided by nobody less than Rico Rodriguez.
