At Blackwell’s request, rock and roll style overdubs were added by guitarist Wayne Perkins (who was famous for his work at Muscle Shoals studios) and keyboard player John “Rabbit” Bundrick (who was also well known for his work with Johnny Nash and the rock bands Free and The Who). Overdubbing is the process of adding new tracks to an already “complete” recording.

On February 26, 1976, Bob’s eighth child was born. Ky-Mani Marley was the product of Bob’s affair with Anita Belnavis, who was a well-known Caribbean table tennis champion. Bob was also cultivating a relationship with the Jamaican beauty queen Cindy Breakspeare. This relationship produced another son in 1978, named Damian, and a huge scandal. Bob and Breakspeare’s relationship lasted for several years and in the course of this time the beauty queen went on to become Miss World 1976.
