Talkin' Blues is a live album by Bob Marley & The Wailers, released in 1991. It contains live studio recordings from 1973 and 1975 intercut with interview segments of Bob Marley. The majority of tracks are taken from the recordings Bob Marley & The Wailers did on October 31, 1973, at The Record Plant for San Francisco radio station KSAN (FM).[3] They include "You Can't Blame the Youth", sung by Peter Tosh, and "Get Up, Stand Up" with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh alternatingly taking lead vocals. The remaining songs are taken from a performance at The Lyceum Theatre in London and interview segments from Jamaican radio in 1975.[4]
