Musicians were known collectively as Now Generation. Joe Gibbs has said
that he believes Rita Marley and Judy Mowatt sang the harmonies on this
session. Bunny remembers Cecile Campbell and Hortense Lewis singing harmony
vocals (which is more likely, as the harmonies don't sound like Rita Marley
and Judy Mowatt).
