Great album, but why a remastered edition?

Advantages: Great tracks, great lyrics, original, its Bob Marley.
Disadvantages: They only include one extra track. No need for remastering. Its too short.

Some Fantastic, Some A Bit Drastic

Advantages: Tracks 1,4 & 8 are great.
Disadvantages: The rest soon get boring.
